The spread looks simple, but I can assure you that it tasted fantastic. MH will back me up on this... sometimes simplicity is really the key. And you can't really go wrong with the classics. And I was bold enough to throw in my own twists.
The basic: roast chicken, anointed with a touch of olive oil and butter. The twist: sweet stuffing of apricots seared in honey.
The basic: mash potatoes. The twist: lots of cheese and a touch of sour cream.
The basic: tomato and cucumber salad tossed in olive oil and vinegar. The twist: actually there's no twist, salads taste best when they are simple and uncomplicated.
Although I miss the usual Christmas feast with the rest of the family back in KK... but we made our own as memorable as possible anyway.
Merry Christmas to all!
