This Christmas has been a bit different than usual. First of all, I spent it far away from my family - well there is an ocean between me and Brussels after all. Secondly, I spent it in a city that completely embrace Christmas and the festive spirit – Loondon. Thirdly, it is the first year I celebrated Christmas with my boyfriend and the new addition to the family – Lemon. Finally, and this is the big one, I did all the cooking myself. It has been a tradition in our family for as long as I can remember, that my dad would spend the day in the kitchen cooking the bigest meal of the year. Thankfully, I picked up – and remembered – a few tricks over the years. The meal itself was a traditional glase turkey covered with bacon ans stuffed with apple and pork stuffing, with over cooked potatoes, carrots and greens. We had blinis (c/o of Foodsterbox), foie gras and ‘oignions confis au beurre salé’ (c/o Foodsterbox). The dessert was the bf’s all time favourite classic US cheese cake.

I really hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, forget the presents, the festivities, the trees and even the food. As long as you are healthy and with people you love that is all that really counts. Merry Christmas and let boxing day begin.
