Christmas Menu 2018

Every year by the time December rolls around I'm craving simplicity and ease.

This year that's more important than ever as we just added a brand new puppy to our already loud and crazy household. This is Murphy the groodle. Isn't she a sweetheart?!

With a puppy, we're staying close to home these holidays so we're hosting both Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas lunch at our place.

I have no problem with that.

I hate travelling at Christmas!

I've been DIYing a lot this year and have prepared gift hampers and Christmas cakes for family.

Our hampers included essential oil infused salt and sugar, homemade hand scrub and lip balm, mini Christmas cakes and salt dough ornaments made and decorated by the kids.

I actually did a 12 days of DIY Christmas event over on Facebook earlier this month and you'll find all 12 days under the video section there. Just look for all the videos with me in a Santa hat! Haha.

There will be just 8 of us Christmas Eve and 6 of us on Christmas Day so our menu is simple and easy and allows for lots of leftovers. 

The leftovers are the best bit don't you think?

Christmas Eve

Slow-cooked beef brisket with thyme and mustard sauce

Hasselback potatoes
Green veg with almonds
GF DF steamed orange and ginger pudding with coconut custard

Christmas Breakfast

Paleo cinnamon donuts
Fruit platter

Christmas Lunch

Lychee, lime and ginger fizz cocktail

Waldorf salad
Peach, nectarine and quinoa salad

Trifle (gluten and dairy free sponge, coconut milk custard, homemade raspberry and orange jelly, sliced fresh peaches with raspberries and whipped coconut cream)

I wish you and your family a wonderful and relaxing Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year!
