This is Sunday, the day after our Lead in to Christmas dinner. It was most enjoyable to say the least. We had the signature martini (yummy). Even the Pear Cider with diced red pear garnish was a hit for our guests who do not drink alcohol.
One of the favourite things they ate was the cheese shortbread. True! The dinner went well, lots of laughter and then we retired to the livingroom when we presented them with the tray of goodies. I don’t think I have ever seen such surprised faces as that.
All in all, yes we were tired (not young anymore) and would we do it again? Absolutely! We love it. But when you do, be sure to call it what it is “A lead In to Christmas”…..now bring on the rest of the month we are all ready.
