Pictures paint a thousand words! Yet another joyous and memorable time with family and friends!
|I love presents. (I know, it sounds commercial, but there is still a little girl in me). An iPad from hubby and a set of very good kitchen knifes from son|
|Dad got a poker chip set from son and some goodies in his X'mas socks|
|Ruby was watching us opening gifts and felt left out, my poor baby!|
|A cute pair of carved wooden baker figures made in Switzerland that Stitch gave me. They actually have an interior space to set incense with the result looking like steam coming from the baked goods each figure holds up.|
|More gifts from Stitch!|
|Our Christmas brunch! Stollen, scrambled eggs and pork/duck terrine made by Stitch|
|Stitch preparing dessert for the Boxing day (day after Christmas) dinner for our dear friends, Fernand and Rina.|
The boxing day dinner - For starters: baked chestnut-cranberry pudding, pork and duck terrine with cranberry marmalade, and my pico de gallo crostini. For the main course: Fettucine Chicken Parisienne, with caramelized pumpkin, and for dessert, a vanilla-sour cream tarte with blueberry sauce. (Stitch will give us the dessert recipe in a separate blog entry. (OMG! It is so creamy and smooth).
|Our dear friends, Fernand, his lovely wife, Rina and his son, Francois (Papu).|
|Wonderful time with good friends|
|Papu loved his Christmas gift from us, a pair of new wave t-shirts|
|Good friends forever|
