Christmas day is nearly over here in Australia, and it’s been a great day. We started off eating shakshuka and fresh fruit for breakfast.
Then we opened presents. Santa had visited for the first time in several years and left me some chocolate money in my stocking, something he always left for us when we were kids. I got some great presents from my parents and my brother, including The Art of Fermentation, some yummy food and a ticket to a show of my choice. Everyone seemed to like my homemade presents (I’ll be sharing the recipes over the next few weeks).
After that my grandparents came over for Christmas dinner and we had a fairly traditional meal: roast turkey, gravy ham, roast veggies, asparagus, Brussels sprouts and cauliflower cheese. For dessert we had plum pudding, cream, custard, chocolate mousse and fresh fruit.
Tonight we watched National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation on TV, which is a tradition in my family.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. What traditions does your family have?
