Images of Christmas, 2007

How was your Christmas?

Mine with filled with plenty of food, family and friends -- all the good things that make Christmas special although a couple of pressies never hurt either.

Was that not the coolest Christmas ever for Sydneysiders? Yes, I'm talking about the weather. We had Christmas lunch outside and at one point I was almost wishing I'd brought along a jumper. Unheard of!

My feasting began the night before, on Christmas Eve with a traditional midnight feast courtesy of Casa di Veruca. It's been non-stop since. We still have a huge chunk of leg ham in the fridge and lots of homemade Christmas cake, although the mighty pavlova has long since gone. Sigh...

Veruca's roast turkey with homemade bacon, onion and parsley stuffing

The stuffing was divine and we made a scrumptious port and redcurrant gravy to go with it.

Christmas Day pavlova

A supermarket base but home-decorated, and no sis, you can never have too big a pavlova!

Local Christmas lights

Hope your Christmas was wonderful too. Have a safe and happy New Year, wherever and however you may be celebrating it.
