Christmas Day 2012

Our tree will usually come down after 6th of January - the day the 3 Kings brought gifts to baby Jesus.  But I am still feeling the festive air and not wanting it to pass by so fast. In this very sense, I thank blogging for allowing me to document them here.  Picture speaks a thousand words they say, but words crafted brings one back to time where it once was.

It was a quiet Christmas day.  I offered to prepare dinner and invited Mama to join us.  It is miserable eating dinner alone especially during festive period.

Appetiser was Gruyere Souffle which rised high and mighty for a couple of minutes.  Then it sanked.  Oh well.  Better luck next time then.

Main course was Roast Pork with Wild Mushroom Stuffings, along with butternut squash, sweet potatoes, potatoes and red onion.  Not wanting to go through the hecticness of last (oops, last last year), I kept it very simple by buying the readily stuffed meat from butcher.  It worked really well, meat tasted great and I am sure to do this again.

Rasberry & Marcaporne Trifle, Mango & Papaya Slush, Creme Brulee, Caramel Parfait, Chocolate Mousse and Rasberry Yoghurt.  Three variety each on our plate to end our meal, mixing and matching so that each get something which they fancy and yet not a replicate taste of the earlier.  All store bought so it was just a matter of assembling.  But tasted good nevertheless and works really well for a small family like ours.
