Season for Feasting

The dishes R and I made were: 
Lamb and asparagus salad
Fruit Salad
Garden Salad
Bacon and chives potato salad
Chocolate caramel brownies

They're all pictured above (except for the baked potatoes) and I've linked them to the recipes we've used in case anyone is interested. Promise they're all super easy and tasty (even the turkey!). Can't quite bear to link the brownie recipe I use though since I've made them at least 5 times and they are too delicious and thus dangerous to be shared :P

Overall, Christmas was a success!! R and I cooked dinner for his family and mine and there were no major dramas. No-one was hospitalised from food-poisoning, both parental parties approved and the most major fight we had was who got to use the only sharp knife in the house. Success! Other than when his mom told me off for 'cutting the oranges the wrong way', anyway. The days following Christmas were much the same; spending time with family, giving and receiving presents and generally bludging around.

I can't quite believe tomorrow is the last day of the year and can't help thinking it's come too soon and that I'm not ready for the new year. Which is ridiculous because it's not like anything changes at all. I mean we all know how well those resolutions are kept... Anyhow I'm excited to go and see the fireworks in Sydney harbour (hopefully) and welcome a whole new year where I will be smarter, stronger, better and go after the things which I've been too scared to go after before. See you next year :)
