Well finally I have made it back to my blog and what a long spell away from it wasn't it? I don't know what was up I just had no love for it so this weekend I am overhauling it with the help of my daughter and then perhaps I will give it the attention it needs. For now though I have decided to do a December Daily as created by Ali Edwards. So here is day one. . . .
Which is deciding what was going to be on the Christmas Day Lunch menu for my family this year. . .
It is a big thing to try and outdo what was on offer the year before and because it is so darn hot here in Australia at this time of year everyone well almost everyone has a cold spread for the big Christmas lunch. So as I said in my journalling we will have the traditional baked ham, roast pork, roast chicken and then of course a huge platter of prawns but I might do Thai style prawns on the BBQ this year. It is the salads that are the thing to beat each year and all year I keep my eye out for new salad ideas lol.
Julie Goodwin a previous winner of Australia's Master Chef brought out a fabulous cookbook with some great Christmas recipes in there so I will be using some of her ideas for sure.
This is the front cover of my December Daily which I did make last year and had big chipboard 2010 on the front cover at the bottom but had to take it all off for 2011 and in the process I ripped some of the scrapbook paper so had to do a cover up ROTFLOL. I will be updating my blog daily with new pages and new photos so stay tuned and I will also intersperse these with Christmas cards I have made using my brand new Copic markers which I have fallen in love with.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
