You rang?

Italian buffet from my parents' Christmas party last night. Mom did most of the cooking, but I made one dish and a dessert.



Want some spiced rum and red wine punch to wash all that down?



Christmas cookies!

*burp* It was. Mom really overdid the punch, though. I was woozy after one cup.

Auntie, you have a husband who bakes cookies?! May I have a clone? Pleeeeze?

No Christmas tree up yet, only an ivy garland with a few small ornaments woven through the bannister and a few stars stuck to the windows.
In Bavaria, we traditionally put the tree up on the 24th in the afternoon. Secretly. No kids allowed, keyhole stuffed and curtains drawn. The kids are supposed to think that the Christchild brings the decorated tree and the presents. In the evening after supper a bell is rung and then everyone may go into the Christmas room. They sing christmas carols and get their presents =)
Handing out the presents on the 24th in the evening is less troublesome: the kids play with their new toys till they drop into their beds and are so exhausted that for once the parents get a chance to sleep long. We think it's a better strategy than handing out the presents on the morning of the 25th and risking that the children throw their parents out of bed at 3 am

We keep the tree till Feb 2nd (candlemas), btw
I'll take pics. Mom wants a red and gold colour scheme this year.

Nice trees both this year and last, RAMA. Looks like a big one, and a classy selection of garlands and ornaments.

Well, he's very OCD, so you may want to rethink that. But he's also a very good baker. His mother can't/couldn't cook for CRAP, so he learned to bake the things he wanted.

On our first official date, he didn't bring me flowers; me brought me a dozen, homemade chocolate chip cookies. Our house sitter/cat sitter asks only to be paid in cookies. 3 days of feeding the cat and getting the mail = a dozen snickerdoodles. When he tries out a new recipe, we sit and test-taste them and talk about it like it's a wine tasting. "It's a full-bodied aroma but it's disappointing that the texture seems to be lacking the depth of the previous batch."

^Nice

My dad worked a bit on a recipe for a few years -eventually making what we now call "dad's cookies" - real butter, decent dark chocolate and chopped hazel-nuts being 'the secret'.

One of his childhood-friends, a professional pastry-chef, eventually "stole" the recipe and produced loads, naming them after my dad

These days I don't think I know anyone that doesn't make those cookies this time of year

Re: 2013 Christmas/Holiday Photos and Thoughts

I am debating with myself if I should make a White Christmas or not this Christmas and I was wondering if this is an Australian/NZ food or whether it is eaten elsewhere. Its main ingredients are Rice Bubbles, desicated coconut, glazed cherries, copha, mixed fruit etc - some photos here
