This year we are spending Christmas at home, with no expected visitors. The decorations are sparse compared to previous years and all of the supplies were obtained a few days early, so no last minute rush.
Breakfast was croissants and home made jam with a fresh pot of coffee.
Dinner was cooked from scratch (with some shop bought puff pastry) - chestnut bake, roast parsnips,carrots, potatoes and steamed sprouts and chestnuts with a bread sauce, cranberry sauce and a good bottle of Chianti. Christmas pud and cream to follow.
On boxing bay we donned wellies and went for a stomp over Berry Hill Fields. There was a light mist and the air was warmer than yesterday. Home to a lunch of crackers and cheese. Leftover Christmas dinner with red cabbage for later.
