The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

Christmas dinner

We spent a bit of Christmas day making a batch of fruitmince pies to give to collegues and friends, many of whom have never tried these before. Then we had Christmas dinner at Kim and Richie's (we are spending lots of time with them coz all the other JETs are overseas or have gone back to their home country for this vacation period). They made yummy roast chicken dinner (in their toaster oven and combi microwave oven - they had to halve the chicken to do that). I made a peach and mango trifle for dessert, which was also their first time trying it. The recipe is a bit different to the trifle I made last year, and will post the recipe for it later if I remember to.

Anyway, the photos.

Christmas tree in their house:

The food - yummy roast chicken with potato mash, corn, beans and salad:


Everything was yummy and it felt Christmassy (yes, including the overeating part).

Anyway, off to bed for an early start tomorrow for the ski trip. Yay!
