Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year!!

Happy Yuletide season to all my lovely readers! I hope you have had as much fun as I have in reading my posts (as I have in eating on your behalf!)

Last night for Christmas Eve, the Boy cooked up a romantic dinner for two... and I've got the pictures below!

Many thanks for sticking by this blog through its infrequency in postings... and here's to many more food related (and some other reviews) posts in 2011!

For starters, we had an onion stew... with loads of thyme and butter! It definitely packed a punch!! My favourite soup of 2010 :)

Served alongside the rich soup, we had super sweet corn, steamed and sprinkled with pink sea salt! Divine!!

And for the main, the Boy roasted a pork shoulder (for 3 hours no less), served with mushrooms and fresh thyme, and a beetroot fluid-gel.

Obviously, this dinner would not be complete if there wasn't any dessert. So what did we have? Peach and Amaretto jelly served with a Frangelico infused cream.

Needless to say, it was an absolutely fabulous meal, which I attacked happily :)

Then on to the the Christmas Tree with our lovely presents :)

So tell me lovely readers, how did you celebrate your Christmas Eve and what did you have for the dinner?

I'm looking forward to tonights Christmas dinner with family... Food coma here we come!!

Merry Christmas and a Joyous New Year to you all!!!


  1. Wow, it all looks so yummy and pretty plating, your boy did very well and I see Santa has rewarded you both for being more nice than naughty this year!

  2. Merry Christmas to you too! As someone who loooooves thyme and corn, I would've been very happy to have someone make this meal for me too ;)

  3. Ooooh camera! That was your present from Santa, wasn't it? Have you played around with it yet?

  4. Kat: Thank you thank you!

    Hannah: It was deeelicious!

    Agnes: YES!! FINALLY!!! It's pretty much the Boy that's been playing with the camera!
