Happy new year! The holiday season for me usually involves festivities with good food and wine enjoyed with friends and family – with high frequency. Here are some photos of our Christmas day lunch at my bf’s family’s house. They’re food lovers and fantastic entertainers, a winning formula for great feasts. There was a turkey, mango and rocket salad, sauerkraut, scalloped roast potatoes (which are actually my favourite form of roast potatoes as they get the perfect mix of creamy, crunchy and chewy) and more.
The highlight though was a deliciously sweet and juicy Christmas ham using Bangalow Sweet Pork (a wonderfully marbled pork and arguably the tastiest pork around, check out this article on smh). The ham was studded with cloves and oven glazed with an aniseed, onion, honey, vanilla bean and orange juice sauce. Mmm.. *pork so good!*
I haven’t done much more than eat and drink during the holidays. Exercise and the gym hasn’t really gotten a look in at all. But when there is so much good food on offer – who can help themselves? I’ll go to the gym next week. Maybe.
