|The table set for Christmas brunch|
Hi dear folk.
Here is a quick picture post of how we fared on Xmas day.
We decided to do a simple brunch this year......
|Eggs, fried mushrooms, baked Tom thumb tomatoes and bacon (!)|
|....and fresh fruit. We also had Greek yoghurt and honey for|
the fruit - yum!
|Croissants and muffins. Some of the croissants just might|
have been chocolate ones.
|Puff pastry and chocolate ganache baked Xmas tree|
After that, we cleared the table and had lots of fun constructing and decorating our gingerbread houses (prepared previously from scratch). A glass or three of my deadly Xmas punch added to everyone's dexterity!
|The brunch table transformed into a hive of activity....|
|....constructing and decorating our gingerbread houses.|
All of us channeling our inner child.
|Some went minimalist.|
|Some went gaudy|
|Some succeeded ..... very nicely indeed.|
And then there was coffee and finger sweets.....
|Home made from scratch peanut butter balls, strawberry|
LCM's, rocky road and lemon slice.
Later on in the evening, once we had digested a little, we brought out the home made cheesecake - but I forgot to take a picture sorry.
We're winding up things here at Mr Home Maker and getting ready for 2018.
All the best of life's blessings to all of you - take care and stay nice!
