Tonight it’s finally Christmas Eve! I’m so excited. This whole week I was in a Christmas mood and in a baking Christmassy food mood. And now that Christmas is only one day away, I thought it was time to share it!
On Monday I decided to bake some Christmas tree cookies. I didn’t have tree mold, so I printed a drawing of a Christmas tree and placed that on the dough. Worked very good for me! My sister helped me decorate them. I think they turned out very cute, and most important: very delicious!
Wednesday I cooked a pre-Christmas dinner for my parents, my sister and me. We decided to celebrate Christmas already with the four of us, as we don’t have time on Christmas Eve, Christmas day and Second Christmas day because of working a lot and going to both family sides.. (I don’t know why, but we have a Second Christmas day in the Netherlands. We also have a Second Easter day….)
For the amuse I made a cheese crul filled with ricotta and herbs. For the entree I made carpaccio made out of tomato, but it was more a caprese salad. For the main course I made chicken filled with pesto and mozerella with pomme duchesse made out of sweet potato, French beans and a piece of dragon fruit.
For desert I made tiramisu. So yummy! The egg-white was left so I made merengue out of it.
I really enjoyed the dinner, we had a lot of fun. It was a good start of Christmas 🙂
This year I decided that I really wanted to make a gingerbread house. I found this DIY package at the Flying Tiger, it’s a Danisch store. I really like how it turned out, but ohmygod it was so horrible to put it together! My glace didn’t want to dry and when I finally thought I got the pieces together, everthing fell and one piece broke 😦 . Maybe I used the wrong product to stick them together, I don’t know, but I was glad when I finally got it. It’s a sin to eat it!
Well that was all the Chrismas food I made this week, I’m really looking forward to the Chrismas dinners that are waiting for me haha 🙂
Hope you liked it, have a nice day and a Merry Christmas! Have fun with your family and enjoy the delicous food!
