Christmas 2015

One must always start the day with a good breakfast; my favourite breakfast at the moment is slow cooked eggs, place eggs into the simmering basket & cover with water, cook for 60 mins, at 60 degrees, speed 4. And my favourite indulgent accompaniments are smoked salmon, avocado & hollandaise sauce (I used the guided recipe on the Thermomix model 5, making sure I use cold butter). I also made fresh orange juice (using the guided recipe too) it’s just orange flesh, water & ice. Our breakfast table cloth & cutlery were my nanas so they are really special. The napkins were a Christmas gift from one of my friends.

Xmas breakfast

This year we had the hottest Hobart Christmas Day on record!! We had already arranged our Christmas menu to have a French inspired menu (because of my trip to Paris this year) We all like to contribute & take it in turns hosting. This year it was at my sister’s house. We all live very close, only 5 mins down the road from each other, which is very handy.

Useless fact: This is the first year that all 3 households have owned a Thermomix!!  Mum brought lots of veggies & herbs from her garden. My brother & mum got to work deshelling the broad beans & chopping up the scarlet runner beans.

Beans & broadbeans

For starters mum had made her smoked salmon rounds on cucumber & homegrown raddish.

Xmas lunch nibbles

My sister had set the table, I wasn’t sure about the noddy table cloth but Christmas is about family & food, not about food styling lol!! She also made our family favourite dip a tradition for each year the Thermie Green Avocado Dip. Everyone brought a cheese & mum also brought quince paste. And I made the oat biscuits from In the Mix 2 to go with the cheeses.Xmas lunch table

 

I made the baguettes fresh that morning!! I instructed mum to tear them up just like they do in Paris!

Xmas lunch table 2

I made my fennel & pink grapefruit salad.

Xmas salad

For mains we had 2 Thermomix cooking steamed salmon with dill & garden veg served with the decadent gratin dauphinois (potato bake) my sister made.

Xmas lunch mains

We were so full & hot we didn’t even have the Christmas puddings made by my friend Nat & I on our Christmas cooking day. We did eat something for dessert but I can’t remember what it was!! What a wonderful day of feasting & family fun!!
