After an extended and unexpected hiatus, I am finally back. Just in time for Christmas- my favourite time of year!
The Christmas tree is up, presents are underneath and my sister has arrived from Queensland. This is our first Melbourne Christmas and we are so excited.
We have been working on our Christmas day menu for a while now. Cutting, adjusting, adding and changing- we are almost there. A baked ham, pavlova, rum balls, trifle and a toasted nut Cassata will all feature this year- and I am keen to try some raw and ‘healthified’ versions of our traditional Christmas favourites.
Our family has always been very festive this time of year. We hang up stockings, and read Christmas stories and of course watch the carols at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl on TV. This year will be no different, apart from the fact that we will be actually attending the carols!
What an amazing time of year, we are so looking forward to what the next few weeks will bring.
Please send me through any Christmas recipes or gift ideas that you have. I always enjoy festive inspiration and would love to share them with you all.
