Tis the season to be fat...

Posted by Dawn at Friday, December 24, 2010
Love Christmas for not only its wonderful meaning behind it but also for its food! I always look forward to Christmas food every year especially when I go over to my mum's house for turkey, roast beef, wine, sausage, ham, baked potatoes with cheese etc etc...



I always look forward to the tender and juicy roast beef! Had my yearly dosage of red wine and this year, we also had strawberry wine which was rather sweet.

To end it all, we had log cake and also to celebrate my parents' helper, Wati's birthday





As for my own Christmas party, I invited my in-laws over to my place as I cook for them. I prepared stuffed portobello mushrooms with bacon, chives and cheese. Very simple recipe which I got the inspiration from my mum.





Had cocktail cheese sausages for appetisers as well


Aside from all that, I had fusilli with ham and mushroom, burritos with chicken, lettuce and tomatoes (mixed with salsa), steam cauliflowers with cream of mushroom and bacon, mashed potato salad with sweet relish, egg, mustard and chives


We brought all the food down to the rooftop garden for an outdoor picnic with the playground for the kids to roam freely




However, it started to drizzle a little while eating, so we had to adjourn back home to continue.



After dinner, we had dessert..lots of it!



I also bought a box of strawberries for everyone to eat!



Had an enjoyable night hosting and hopefully, everyone enjoyed themselves. I have already made plans to cook something different next year! Hopefully, I will remember when the time comes.

Merry Christmas!
