Christmas Feasting - Part 2 Christmas Day

Following our epic Christmas Eve we re-booted ready to go again! Christmas wasn't over yet and a beautiful balmy day greeted us on the 25th of December, my big sister was hosting Christmas Day dinner.

I'd say our family's celebration is fairly normal Australian - apart from the macrobiotic dishes for Mum and Dad we still have most of the traditional dishes and some seafood too.

We arrived to a perfect start - a bottle of champers and some fresh oysters and gorgeous marinated grilled prawns. We sat outside and chatted for a while, enjoying the warm evening.

Following this we moved inside to the beautifully set dining table and a feast of turkey, glazed ham, bread sauce (my all time favourite), gravy and salmon served with fennel remoulade. We had some gorgeous modern salads too, a bean, pea and sprout salad, a fresh potato salad and a delightfully Christmassy cous cous, pistachio and cherry salad.

After a little break we had a traditional dessert - hot Christmas pudding with brandy butter, cream and an alcoholic berry and fruit salad. It's the only time of the year I eat pudding like this, but boy do I like it! Excuse the dodgy photo, I'd had a few wines by then and nearly forgot to snap one before it was devoured!

Overall it was a sensational Christmas Day, spending time with loved ones, good food and good wine! The perfect way to top off a few days of feasting!

Hope your Christmas celebrations were as good as ours!
