Hello! I hope that everyone enjoyed their holidays with family and friends...and of course, FOOD!! We had a very quiet Christmas which is how I like it! The advantage of living overseas away from your family (although has its disadvantages) is the lack of hectic traveling back and forth to everyone's home...and making sure you don't leave anyone out.
This year my husband insisted on a Japanese style Christmas. What does that mean? Well, we usually have a Japanese dinner on Christmas Eve (aka NABE) and on Christmas, I cook up a turkey dinner with the works. This year, we celebrated on Christmas Eve with fried chicken (KARAGE chicken), Japanese potato salad and club sandwiches....and of course, the Japanese Christmas Cake with champagne and red wine flowing :0)
That also included party hats and poppers...I got the wrong thing and ended up purchasing party crackers! OOops! Next year, note to self...poppers! The party hats were boring so I had each person make their own using October Afternoon's Holiday Style. LOVED how they turned out :0)
Put it all together and you have a wonderful Christmas celebration!
Thanks for stopping by!!
