Christmas Day 2007 December 25th, 2007

Firstly I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.

The last few days have been unseasonaly cold and wet and we had thought that we may have to eat christmas dinner inside but we had a beautiful 22 degrees celsius (72 degrees fahrenheit) day, warm enough to eat outside and slightly overcast so that it didn’t get to hot.

Jessie and I went to my sisters place for lunch and she set the table under her pergola.

Peeling PrawnsOur big brother had sent us a cheque to spend on christmas day so we decided that we could afford to have prawns for entree, we beleive that a love of seafood is in our blood and we learn to peel them at an early age

Due to the messy nature of eating prawns we sat on the lawn to devour them.

Christmas Lunch

For the main course we had cold chicken and ham with salads, as kids we always looked forward to christmas lunch because we had pickled onions and other treats that we didn’t get at other times of the year, my favourite was hard boiled eggs and I was delighted to find the the box of free range eggs that I had bought was all double yokers.

Chocolate Mouse for DesertFor Desert I made Chocolate Mousse, I used Muffin patty cases to make Chocolate shells to hold individual serves of the Mousse.

A wonderful meal and plenty of left overs for the next few days including the plum pudding, cheese and crackers, chocolates and the fruit including, mango, cherries, watermelon that we didn’t get to because we had all eaten enough.

    Thanks for your note, Annie! I appreciate your insights.

    This looks like a feast, indeed, and I don’t believe I’ve ever seen eggs that big!
