White Christmas





White Christmases are very rare in Belgium, so the weather here actually made frontpage news! First white Christmas in most of Belgium in a very long time. I don't know if the snow had anything to do with it, but the last two days have been the best Christmasdays I've had in years. Nothing too special, but everything just felt "right".  I was perfectly happy and content and everything seemed to fall into place. I actually made roast turkey today for the very first time in my life and all by myself, and it was AMAZINGLY good. I had no idea it would taste this good actually! I thought it would be majorly difficult to get the turkey cooked all the way through and not be dried out, but it was absolutely delicious and succulent. Don't you just love feeling all grown up and accomplished when you cook something nice? I took some pictures of today's and yesterday's dinner. I'm not a very good food photographer, but I thought I'd share it with you anyway.

TURKEY

we had potato croquettes (deep fried mashed potatoes, very common over here but you guys don't really eat it I guess?), cranberry sauce and euhm I don't know what you call it in english. It looks like this:


So silly that I can't seem to think of the right word! Anyway, that's what we had, and it was really good. For desert I just had simple but delicious strawberries with whipped cream and some ice cream! Nomz. As a matter of fact, I'm going to get another serving of that last one right now. What did you have for Christmas dinner? Was your Christmas magical?


Outfit of the day was simple and sort of boring but warm and comfortable. Except for the boots, but I only put those on to make the outfit less boring. I'm not feeling very inspired I guess. I do love my faux fur ridiculously awesome snood!

  5. Merry Christmas:) Oh and those are green beans I think. I made some for my family's dinner too and mixed them with olive oil, dried rosemary and garlic! Super yummy!

    I'm glad your first turkey came out good! Big things like that can be intimidating at first.

  9. Green beans! My favorite! Pretty self-explanatory name, eh?

    And only you would call this outfit boring! It most certainly is not :) Look at all the texture you have going on. It's very fun and very cute.

    I am so glad your Christmas felt "right." Mine felt kind of off, to be honest. I love all of the gifts I got, but I just never really got into the whole Christmas Spirit this year. Who knows why not. Ah well! Plenty more to go :)

    xoxo

  20. I love the snood! So freaking cute :) Dinner looks yummy, too. I'm so jealous it snowed there... we were supposed to have a white Christmas, but the storm blew out to sea before it hit us.
