Our Christmas Day Lunch

Our Christmas Day Lunch

Ever since Danny and I have been married we have a quiet Christmas Day lunch together before going out to visit family.

We prepare a light meal and set a modest festive table. We toast to the peace, happiness and good fortune we share together.

Most years we have made a prawn cocktail with a mayonnaise based dressing. This year we made fresh Australian king prawns in a white wine and chive sauce encased in vol au vents. The chives were fresh from our potager garden. We had homemade shortbread biscuits and a cup of tea for dessert. The shortbreads were a Christmas gift from a friend.

We are mindful of over indulgence and food wastage at this time of year and we heeded the Pope’s message about wastefulness.

  1. We hope you are all enjoying the festive season. I would also like to let you know that most of the stuff in the photo attached to this blog post has been rescued from landfill, and some of it has been collected over the years from charity shops. Our preference is to immediately clean our finds and reuse them ‘as is’.
