How did your Christmas day go ?

Ours went like this. The day started of course with the opening of the presents:

Oliver requested a radio control monster truck from Santa and was not disappointed Lucy requested a unicorn, she too was not disappointed. But I love this dress from Mexico

Lunch was served at about 1.00pm - there was 15 of us in total

We ate:
  • Roast Turkey served with home made Spiced Cranberry Relish
  • Baked Ham with Palm Sugar, Cinnamon & Cloves Glaze, studded with pineapple and topped with cherries
  • Cannellini Bean Salad with Kalamata Olives, Semi dried tomatoes, Cherry tomatoes, Red Onion, Parsley and a red wine vinegar dressing
  • Swedish Potato Salad made with Kipfler potatoes, shallots, fresh dill and parsley finely chopped, with a white wine vinegar and Dijon Mustard dressing
  • Traditional Potato salad made with Kipfler potatoes, mayonaise and greek yoghurt dressing and boiled eggs
  • Salad of Dried Pears poached in Maggie Beers Verjuice/Peppercorns/Lemon rind and then pan fried, on a bed of mixed greens, with double brie cheese and lightly toasted Californian walnuts
      • We finished off with a Christmas Pudding SemiFreddo. The recipe was chosen by me. But it was executed to perfection by my husband, he is the better cook out of the two of us. I decided we needed to add Cranberries and Pistachios to give it a christmasy theme so in they went. It was topped with melted Lindt milk chocolate and cherries and then popped into the freezer to set - the cherries came out all frosty and looked gorgeous, we then served it with fresh fruits - yummmmm............
      notice the frosty cherries

      Lucy was quite excited by it
      And then we sat down and ate it all over again for dinner that night - sigh !
