This year we had Christmas at our place. A duck, some turkey, a ham, some roast veg and a few salads did the trick, followed by my Nanna’s famous Christmas pudding, a gigantic trifle and a Christmas ice-cream bomb (both first-attempts for me which thankfully turned out great!!), and enough cupcakes to feed an army (the latter carefully prepared by my little sister 🙂 ). Aside from being the first time we’ve hosted Christmas, it ended up pretty much like every other Christmas we’ve had – full of food, family and post-feast fullness! It was another sweltering hot Western Australian Xmas day. The turkey, ham, roast spuds, prawns and egg salad were savoury highlights!
