Christmas Eve dinner French style

A lovely evening spent with friends and their family on Christmas Eve. There were 11 of us and in addition 4 dogs, 5 cats and an assortment of various other animals all behaving very well and entertaining. The food just kept coming and it was difficult to do all of it justice having started with "Amuse Bouche" then a starter of Oysters, Foie Gras and Smoked Salmon followed by Escargot and for the main course Goose and all the trimmings. Plus, ofcourse cheese and dessert.

The Christmas presents were opened at midnight! We arrived home at 3.30 am, can't remember the last time that we were out so late.

  1. From the looks and sound of it, you seem to have had a wonderful Christmas. The food, friends, make this time of the year a wonderful time.

    About your two week trip to England...I know how you feel when you say it was a bit unsettling. It seems we all have our routines and when they are disrupted even in the best of ways it is hard to get your "groove" back! LOL

    It has been so nice getting to know you and I thank you for your friendship. I enjoy reading your posts and hope 2012 will be a very good year for you and your family. Like fine wine...we just keep getting better! LOL
