White Christmases are very rare in Belgium, so the weather here actually made frontpage news! First white Christmas in most of Belgium in a very long time. I don’t know if the snow had anything to do with it, but the last two days have been the best Christmasdays I’ve had in years. Nothing too special, but everything just felt “right”. I was perfectly happy and content and everything seemed to fall into place. I actually made roast turkey today for the very first time in my life and all by myself, and it was AMAZINGLY good. I had no idea it would taste this good actually! I thought it would be majorly difficult to get the turkey cooked all the way through and not be dried out, but it was absolutely delicious and succulent. Don’t you just love feeling all grown up and accomplished when you cook something nice? I took some pictures of today’s and yesterday’s dinner. I’m not a very good food photographer, but I thought I’d share it with you anyway, so check out my blog for pics!
We had potato croquettes (deep fried mashed potatoes, very common over here but you guys don’t really eat it I guess?), cranberry sauce and euhm I don’t know what you call it in english.
So silly that I can’t seem to think of the right word! Anyway, that’s what we had, and it was really good. For desert I just had simple but delicious strawberries with whipped cream and some ice cream! Nomz. As a matter of fact, I’m going to get another serving of that last one right now. What did you have for Christmas dinner? Was your Christmas magical?
Outfit of the day was simple and sort of boring but warm and comfortable. Except for the boots, but I only put those on to make the outfit less boring. I’m not feeling very inspired I guess. I do love my faux fur ridiculously awesome snood!
Happy holidays :)
