With Wills, Kellogg, and Bunny off to Oz before too long, we're having TWO Christmases this year. Last night's was Christmas No 1.
No Turkey this time; we had a veggie dinner. A few crustaceans to start with, then stuffed peppers and nut roast with roasted vegs, then mini-Christmas puds (they were actually Rhum soaked chocolate brownies cut into rounds) with thick cream and cranberries. All very nice.
As the Beaujolais Nouveau had been released just a week ago, I though it right to make that our drink of choice; plus the Champagne, of course.
Bunny had lots of prezzies (and tried to liberate most of the baubles on the tree) and a good time was had by all.
Now we have to wait another month before our Christmas No 2.
Gosh, that boy has really grown! What a cutie.ReplyDelete
He's 18 months old now.Delete
It certainly was last night.Delete
'You might also like:' had a post with Minnie/Mickey on top of last year's tree. Who or what is the star Xmas dec. this year?ReplyDelete
Mickey is up there again, with his silver halo; unfortunately he's just out of the picture.Delete
I said it before and i say it again, how lucky you are.ReplyDelete
Yes, I am.Delete
Two Christmasses - lucky you. I love the look of those stuffed peppers. As I have one veggie on Boxing Day, might I persuade Lady M to part with her recipe - they look absolutely delicious.ReplyDelete
It was my recipe actually! I stuffed them with a mixture of Flageolet beans, Mushrooms, and Chestnuts with some Parsley thrown in. They were very good.Delete
It looks as though a very good time was had by all ! What a little sweetie Bunny is - you'll miss him whilst he's "down-under".ReplyDelete
Nowadays we have Skype; but it's not the same!Delete
Looks very Christmassy. I like the sound of rum soaked brownies. And I might have to try the stuffed pepper recipe out for my vegan daughter in Oz. Oops, I forgot, she doesn't like peppers.ReplyDelete
Scoop out an Aubergine?Delete
Good idea. Thanks. Is Wills vegan or vegetarian?Delete
Half-n-half I think, we have to be quite cautious.Delete
Lovely, lovely, lovely. Veggies can be fun and sharing the holidays with those you love, perfect.ReplyDelete
It was lovely, and it felt exactly like Christmas too.Delete
What a sweet little guy! It must have been a great time.ReplyDelete
He was very well behaved as well.Delete
Well then, merry first Christmas to you and yours!ReplyDelete
Thank you Bill. We did our best.Delete
Well now you've started a tradition and the little darling is going to want two Christmases from now on, which I'm sure Grandpa will do. You're a good Grandpa Cro.ReplyDelete
Roast and plum pud' here, and shrimps on the barby down under?Delete
Looks wonderful. I've noticed for a month now various people at the store buying their turkey and Christmas items early, and wondered if they had family going away. In particular, I wondered if it might be the deployment of husbands and/or wives. One never knows. Glad you had a fun time and love the pictures.ReplyDelete
I usually buy one Turkey mid December, that I put in the freezer, then I try to buy another one fresh a day or two before the 25th. If no luck then I take the frozen one out. So far I've been OK.Delete
He's so BIG now.ReplyDelete
Merry Christmas to you and your wonderful family Cro.ReplyDelete
Merry Christmas number one Cro and family.... your veggie dinner and Beaujolais nouveau looked and sounded absolutely delicious and it looks like a good time was had by all.... and, I'm sure that Christmas number two will be equally successful. XXXXReplyDelete
Let's hope so Jacqueline. The only real difference will be the Turkey, which I did miss from No 1.Delete
He looks just like you.ReplyDelete
I thought that too ...Lovely pic !Delete
Chubby cheeks, smooth skinned, and blonde? Yup, that's me all right.Delete
He's got your head shape.Delete
What a wonderful post.ReplyDelete
Everything looks lovely.
We skype on our Christmas Eve to see Japanese Granddaughter open her present, from us and Santa.
Little one make everything so much better.
Looks lovely! Merry Christmas #1!ReplyDelete
