For the first time ever, I worked on Christmas Eve. I was the only one through at work and things were really quiet, so I finished early. When I arrived home, the children had already written out menus for everyone
All the cooking was done by Alain, Gaby, Alexis and MK. Oliver stayed far away from any work, while Charlotte was with her boyfriend. Alexis is really starting to like helping out in the kitchen. Above he's preparing salmon canapés.
The girls made lots, including Devils on Horsebacks.
After many tasty aperitifs
The table was laid
and this year we ate duck, a recipe inspired from a one of MK's cook books. Our "Magret de Canard en Croûte de Noël" main course was yummy, served with parsnip and carrot chips.
To finish, we had a boulangerie bought Christmas Log.
To finish off, we were treated to a amazing harmonica concert by Alexis.
