Christmas 2008: Christmas Morning
Merry Christmas everyone! Hope everyone's had a fabulous day. We spent about 4 hours this afternoon cooking, and we had a massive, massive dinner! Now it's quiet - we've eaten our turkey, packed away the leftovers, and cleaned the kitchen. I'm sooo glad to be slumped on the couch with my feet up, and am soo looking forward to the rest of this long weekend.
For breakfast this morning I made a batch of Nigella's Christmas morning muffins, which are full of Christmas spices and glinting red cranberries. I actually baked them last night, at about 2am (as you can imagine, we were busy with gift-wrapping and biscuit baking and whatnot), and re-heated them in the oven this morning for 5 minutes at 180C. We had them, as per Nigella's suggestion, with lashings of unsalted butter and marmalade. Fabulous!

In my house, Christmas morning is all about the presents! It's so festive to have a big pile of gifts under the tree, and I love ripping off the wrapping paper. Here's a selection of some awesome gifts I received...
French Champagne; Maggie's Kitchen by Maggie Beer; Venezia by Tessa Kiros, and a freakin' sweet red leather travel document wallet from Kikki K. I'm a very lucky girl.
Happy Holidays! Can't wait to see everyone's Christmas blog posts!
