My Christmas Day


I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and have enjoyed recovering this Boxing Day with the yummy leftovers. I had a wonderful day yesterday. Following a couple of somewhat disappointing Christmas lunches at a local pub, I decided to take the reigns and cook myself this year. I made goat's cheese & balsamic red onion tarts with homemade cranberry sauce to start followed by the full works - roast turkey, honey-glazed gammon and all the trimmings. Then there was dessert which was a choice of Christmas pudding (courtesy of Harrods this year!), chocolate brownies or cheesecake. It was inevitably very busy but it all went to plan and I had one very happy family by the end of it! 

I took a few few photos along the way for you to see.


Merry Christmas & Happy New Year everyone!

  7. Wow Carolina what a feast!! Nicely done lady, that is very impressive!
    We went to relatives house for Christmas, so I didn't prepare a thing! All the eating, none of the cooking!
