How sad it is that work changes have meant less time for blogging! *Boooo...* And whilst I know my new boss understands the need for work/life balance, I’m not sure she’d understand my need for work/life/BLOG balance as such.
So in almost the blink of an eye, Christmas is once again upon us. I’m not religious but it really is my favourite time of year. The idea of bringing people together to spend time over conversation and, of course, food brings all kinds of warm and fuzzy feelings into my heart. That, coupled with colourful and sparkly decorations helps to bring the child out in me as well.
The tree also added some festive atmosphere to an early informal lunch with friends. Lots of conversation, laughter and food was had thanks to contributions from friends, while the table was adorned with lolly bags filled with snowman chocolates and balls from Koko Black. Retro prawn cocktails, grilled haloumi and rolled chicken roast was followed by chocolate cake and ice cream.
As for the day itself, I will be spending it once again in Hong Kong with my mother’s extended family. With Christmas but a few days away, hopefully you’ll have plans in place to surround yourself with loved ones as well.
merry Christmas, happy cooking & happy eating!
