I just want to say that I am HOME..HOME…In Fremantle. It’s been nice to be back in Australia..it’s been the longest day ever. I am currently sipping on Green Tea. My body is totally out of wack. It’s exhausted, yet it’s sunny outside.
Before I left America, we had the 2nd Annual Mock Christmas. This was after the night of tequila. OMG..I love tequila. We have this, because we usually have Christmas Eve morning with my Mom. However, since I wasn’t home for Christmas last year, and again this year..we do it in November. 🙂
Lets focus on the most important part..FOOD!
A little closer…you can almost smell it can’t you?
I made homemade gravy with about 1/4 c. of turkey drippings and about 1 1/2 TB corn starch. The mashed potatoes has a splash of GF turkey stock w/ a splash of almond milk.
These brussel sprouts were FABULOUS. They were mixed w/ almond butter, tamari, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, garlic, oil. They were SO GOOD.
Then is was present time and stockings! I LOVE stockings..anyone else hear me on this?
Some people may have fallen victim to the afternoon turkey coma
Mock Christmas was a success. Sometimes I really loathe Christmas. To be honest the whole ‘I have to get gifts for people’ frustrates me. First, if religious, it’s about Christ’s Birth. Beyond that it should be hanging out with people who make you laugh, bring spirit to your soul and creating memories.
I do think this was accomplished this year.
How do you feel about Christmas?
