Itâ€™s going to be Christmas soon!!! My most favourite time of the year! I love Chinese New Year too, but January doesnâ€™t give me the festive feeling as much as December does!
How are you all planning to celebrate the Christmas weekend? Iâ€™ve got a lot in store on my side. For Christmas Eve, the Partner will be cooking dinner just for my parents and us. His parents are in New Zealand so they obviously wonâ€™t be joining. Maybe Iâ€™ll bring my parents for the Swensensâ€™ 12 Sundaes of Christmas. Speaking of which, lots of people are googling that. Looks like Swensensâ€™ is going to have a busy Christmas.
After dinner, weâ€™ll probably go out for coffee somewhere, maybe the Airport even. I would really love to have a drive down Orchard Road to see the lights. I donâ€™t believe Iâ€™ve had a chance to view the Christmas Lights at Orchard this year, not at night anyway. But I know itâ€™s going to be one hell of a traffic jam there, believe me I tried several years ago.
For Christmas Day, Iâ€™ll be hosting a party for 10 people!! And the best or worst part is that most of them donâ€™t know each other, but they are all my best pals. Iâ€™ve always wanted to have my very own party, and this year itâ€™s going to happen! I hope it goes well, if not I guess Iâ€™ll have to ply everyone with more alcohol!!!!
This is my proposed menu. I am going to make the cakes from scratch, including the marmalade! Canâ€™t wait to get started on those!
1. Potato Cakes
2. Bacon wrapped prawns
1. Roast Chicken with cranberry sauce
2. Roast potatoes, sweet potatoes and vegetables
1. Orange Marmalade Cake
2. Chocolate Log Cake
4. Iced Earl Grey
And on Boxing Day, I think I need to rest to recover from the festivities.
