The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Merry Christmas everyone! We've had a lovely few days so far, with plenty of food, drink, laughter, playing in the snow and dancing to the Wii! Here's just a few pics from our Christmas- mostly food related, of course.
I made some mince pies using the mincemeat that I made a couple of weeks ago (you can find the recipe elsewhere on the blog). For a change, I used puff pastry instead of shortcrust, which resulted in light, fluffy mince pies with a crusty sugar topping. We ate them warm from the oven so as you can imagine they didn't last too long!

Christmas brunch-scrambled eggs and smoked salmon with toasted muffins, criossants and champagne.

Best time of the day: presents!

I know I only ate this yesterday, but I could totally eat this all over again...

Dad's random new tradition that he's just decided to introduce-a scratch card in an envelope for each person at the table, to be scratched after dinner. Slightly odd but actually adds some excitement to the end of the meal!

Hope you've all had a good one! Now roll on New Year...
