Tell me what you want, what you really really want........

Don't panic it will be ok!
AB and I will be hosting Christmas this year so of course planning has commenced.
In the next week or two I'll start soaking the fruit for the cake and make the pudding. I'll re think the entrée about 8 times to then come back to my first initial idea. There will also be a few menu item culls when I realise that it's just one meal and not a 3 day retreat.
This year there will be no 80cm macaron centrepiece......
So in the lead up to the festive season and New Year I thought I would highlight a few different areas:
  • Party food - get us out of the kitchen and onto the dance floor
  • De stress hosting Christmas dinner/lunch - It's just a baked dinner really
  • Homemade gifts - No macaroni art I promise
  • Road testing different traditions - It's not all about turkey
That's the plan anyway but I'd love to know what you'd like to see here.

Please use the comments below for suggestions, questions or to share any seasonal traditions you think I should road test.

Looking forward to sharing this great time of year with you all.



  1. G'day Jason! Everything is all done, just waiting for the day! Presents, Drinks and Nibbles Party Menu...
    How about Christmas through a 5 years old's eyes? Or (while I am not a religious person) highlighting in a post the REAL significance about Christmas and not what the day has changed into world wide about "gimme, gimme, gimme....I want I want I want... :)
    Cheers! Joanne

    1. Thanks Joanne, that is a great suggestion. I might see if I can pinch (borrow) Celia's idea and host an "My festive tradition" like IMK and people could write about what the time means to them. That way it can cover everyone, non religious, religious and various faiths so that non one is excluded. I'm all for celebrating every tradition, the more parties the better!! cheers Jason
