Hope you all had relaxing christmas holidays with the loved ones
Our holiday begun in wednesday evening when we drove to Orange
to spend christmas with R's family.
23th morning we went early at the morning for the market for christmas food shopping
basically R's mom made the shopping and
we were looking around and helping carrying everything
I just love markets,
I wish I could do my shopping always at the market..
Well, we could but we always forgot to go to the market at saturday mornings.
Christmas morning (24th for me), we had morning walk in little village near by...
For the 24th evening we had planned finnish menu,
glögi with almonds and raisins
christmas ham with rutabaga purée
tiramisu with finnish piparkakku-biscuits
oui oui oui je sais,
tiramisu isn't finnish but I didn't find any good finnish recipe
25th was more traditional with chapon (castrated cock) and 26th we had raclette.
But we had finnish breakfast with
riisipuuro (rice porridge) and
I ate way too much
but it's only a christmas
and new year soon..
See you in 2011!
ps. some trips planned to Paris, Finland and quick turn in Sweden too..
Can't wait the year 2011 to start!
