It truly is the most wonderful time of the year, Christmas is my favourite holiday – I love everything about it, the preparations, the giddiness and the anticipation leading up to the day, the carols and the adorable twinkly lights.
I love that we’re a little compassionate during this season, and I love that I get to spend the day in my PJs, be merry and spend quality time with my very favourite people.
There’s always a peaceful quietness I relish about Christmas day, as always, our day was super relaxed and cozy.
We slept in, ate spiced banana cake with tea and shared a delightful moment hanging out and opening presents.
For Christmas 2013 we decided on dinner instead of the breakfast/brunch we normally do.
We had a little feast of wild rice salad with dried fruits and nuts, lentils baked in pastry (lentils en croute), a simple balsamic vinegar roasted fennel and cilantro and cranberry sauces to go with it.
Dessert was a citrus and ginger Bûche de Noël from one of our favourite bakeries.
I loved the rustic simplicity of our meal and maybe next time we’ll do some baked salmon for the pescetarians.
I hope you had a magical and merry Christmas! 🙂
