Happy Friday my loves…
Christmas is just a few days away. This is the perfect time for families to get together and enjoy a sumptuous meal or most of the time, dinner, while reminiscing the past, planning the future, and enjoying the presents of today.
In our family, it has always been the tradition to eat our dinner late. By late, I mean 12:01 in the morning of the 25th. This is to welcome the day of Christmas. We always have a simple family party while waiting for the clock to strike 12. There are a lot of activities to do while waiting. We sometimes watch movie. We make it a point to choose a family rated movie so the kids can watch as well. For this year’s Christmas waiting time, I’m planning to get the “Frozen” movie for the whole family to enjoy. If not, I would probably be okay with Turbo or Smurfs 2.
We always cook a special dinner for the whole family. And I would like to share some of my favourite Christmas foods to you:
Gingerbread cookies are always a hit for the kids. I usually shape them as gingerbread man or gingerbread house. But for Christmas, these lovely hearts and stars cookies are just perfect.
Don’t you just love these Santa Claus strawberries? They are so easy to make. Simply cut off the bottom part of the strawberry, fill with whip cream, then put the bottom part back. The kids are sure to love these strawberries. This is perfect for family Christmas dinner.
I am a pasta lover, so anything with long strands of pasta stirs up my appetite 🙂 I love bolognese, pesto, and aglio oglio. I also love marinara.
Roast pork is also a very much loved participant of our family table. If we can’t have roast pork, we settle with barbecued pork rashers. Or deep fried pork belly.
A Christmas dinner is incomplete without ham leg.
Quezo de bola is also a must. This is edam cheese ball.
A yummy cake adds a sweet touch to our Christmas family dinner. The kids adore cakes and practically anything sweet 🙂
And lastly to make the Christmas family dinner complete….ice cream!
