Merry Christmas Everyone!

Well it is that time of year again. Santa is getting ready to fill his sleigh with all those presents for little children and big children alike.
I am preparing for a gastronomic feast for just Chopper, Peanut and Myself.
With B and M away in Brisvegas with their father and J and A with their mother for Christmas day this year. This will be the first Christmas in a long time I won't have a bunch of people over munching out all day. The pressure is off. It's kinda nice actually. Chopper and I can have quite a lavish little gourmet feast on our own without food for the masses.
Croissants for brekky with bacon and eggs.
I have two lobsters in the freezer ready to be grilled in their shells on the BBQ
and I am making a nice Bearnaise sauce to top them off. Caesar salad to go with, Choppers favourite. Peanut has been munching out on home made rum balls for the past two days.
I have 2 dozen NZ oysters so we can have those done in a classic Kilpatrick.
Plum pudding of course with vanilla custard and thick double cream.
Otherwise some lovely cherries, mangoes and a gorgeous piece of seedless watermelon.
I think that makes for a great Christmas day feast just the two of us, adults. Not completely traditional, but quite satisfying none the less.
We will definately feel the absence of the majority of our blended family this Christmas, but they will be enjoying themselves with the X Husband and the X Wife and I hope they have an amazing day all four of the little midgets. We will have a second Christmas day when they are all home on the 1st of January.
I hope you all have had a wonderful year and have a safe time during this crazy Christmas and New Years period. Thank you all so much for your support with my Food Blog which is a little over a year old now.
Merry Christmas Everyone!
Love Squishy
