Festive Grazing!

Gingerbread House, Gather and Graze

The children are now on summer holidays, my parents have arrived for Christmas and my blogging life has, temporarily, been thrown out the window. For a week or so at least…

However, I very much want to wish each and every one of you a happy and peaceful Christmas, filled with kindness and consideration for all who grace this world. May you relax quietly with a good book, take a gentle stroll along a beautiful path, or simply find time for a little contemplation… leaving aside the chaos and mayhem that Christmas often brings.

A Merry Christmas to All!

PS. In a few moments time, the above Gingerbread House will gleefully be torn apart by both children and adults alike! 🙂

    That is the cutest gingerbread house EVER Margot! If I were there, I’d tear it apart and devour it too!

      Merry Christmas to you too Danny! Hope you had a lovely day. Pulling apart the gingerbread house was a lot of fun… for everyone! Such a fun thing to make each year on the days leading up to Christmas. All the best to you and yours for a wonderful 2014! Margot

      Johnny there are a few crumbs left, though all the best sweets have been plucked shamelessly from the top by the eager little decoraters/eaters! Still half a Christmas cake and a stack of shortbread to be eaten if you can make it around by supper-time! 🙂 Merry Christmas!

      Oh Azita – likewise! I’ve enjoyed so much, learning about Persian food and culture through you and your wonderful blog! It really has been the most unexpected delight in starting up this blog – to make friends around the world with others who share this passion for food! Just wonderful! Merry Christmas to you and your family and all the very best of wishes for a fabulous 2014!

      Thank you Suzanne – we’ve had a lovely lunch today, with chilled prawns, smoked ham, chicken and a couple of salads, followed by the choc-chip pavlova (which I will try to post in the next day or two). Feeling like a little nap now… 🙂 Hope you have a wonderful day too! Merry Christmas to you, Izzy and Nando!

      Merry Christmas to you too! I took a couple of ‘after’ photos – though can’t bring myself to add them to the post, as it looks like the house was ravaged by a pack of wild animals! 😉 It was delicious to say the least! Have a great day tomorrow.

      Thanks very much John for your kind wishes! Merry Christmas to you and your family too – I hope that you have a wonderful day. I’m looking forward to sitting down quietly to catch up on a number of posts that I’ve missed over the next couple of days, in between reading a couple of new books that just might be under the tree… 🙂

      Karen, Merry Christmas to you and your Mr LG! Hope you both have a lovely, relaxing day! I’m looking forward to peeling a rather large number of chilled prawns, while sipping on some bubbles… 🙂
