Merry Christmas + How We Spent Christmas 2014

Wishing all my dear readers and friends...
a very Merry Christmas, 
Frohe Weihnachten,
Joyeux Noël, 
Feliz Navidad

Have a wonderful, blessed celebration.


Good morning! For Christmas Day breakfast, we had fluffy "A-Merry-Kan" (American) pancakes with fresh berries, whipped cream, maple syrup and caramel sauce! Recipe can be found here.

After breakfast, we opened some presents... 

Some of the things the kids requested from Santa Claus this year.... Sylvanian Families Pizza Parlor, Ice Cream Van and Candy Cart to add to their collection.

And while the kids were playing with their new toys... mummy cooked lunch..... a really delicious risotto with seared scallops and foie gras! Garnished with some lemon cress. So so good! You can check out the recipe here. Thanks to my team of sous chefs who helped out - The Unc and Hubby :)

Tea Break at 2.30pm - Pandoro, Japonais, Walker's Scottish shortbread, German Lebkuchen (gingerbread) and Wagon wheels. YUM!

Our Christmas Dinner - so pleased that I managed to cook 7 tenderloin steaks to perfection tonight as well as balsamic roasted chicken for my guests who do not take beef. Side dishes include roasted potatoes with rosemary and thyme, brussel sprouts and baby carrots as well as an avocado and tobiko salad.

Paired with Moet & Chandon champagne.. cheers!

YUM.. perfectly cooked steak!

Ending our Christmas celebrations on a high note with this awesome cheese platter, consisting of Camembert, Parmesan, Cheddar, Emmental, Gouda and Blue Cheese, as well as chorizo, dried figs, strawberries, sun dried tomatoes, goose liver pate with truffles and Riesling.
