My Christmas in Food

Pin It
So, I have been trying to summon up the energy to go through and edit the many photos I took over Christmas and it has taken me till now to do it. It has been so nice having some time off from everything and although I got ill on Christmas night it has been a nice excuse to lay on the sofa and eat all the chocolates that I got for Christmas (not that I need any excuse!) I am happy to report I am pretty much all better now and am planning a day of baking today, if I manage to get out of my PJs and to the supermarket that its! I realise its a bit of an overload of photos but I thought I'd share how we did Christmas this year. I loved hosting it and I am happy to report it all went without any glitches- despite the fact that our oven broke 5 days before Christmas. Luckily our landlord was great and got it sorted in time for us! Apologies for the dark and grainy photos from Christmas Eve, I still haven't quite got the hang of low light photography.

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas.

Kombos- A traditional Bosnian Christmas Eve meal consisting of saurkraut, lots of garlic, olive oil, butterbeans & canneloni beans topped with baked potatoes. Traditionally you don't eat meat on Christmas Eve.
