It is now Boxing Day here and the day has dawned warm and sunny again.
We had a lovely Christmas Day yesterday – quiet and peaceful and very relaxed. The afternoon was spent sitting around talking and drinking lots of water as the temperatures climbed into the low 30s (Celsius).
Lunch was our main celebration. As was befitting for a mid-summer meal, we had cold meat and lots of salads and finished off with a pavlova.
On the table we had ham and (moving clockwise) coleslaw, pickled onions, brie cheese, tomatoes, rice salad, lettuce and cucumber salad, green grapes, salad dressing, savoury eggs, beetroot, potato salad, and asparagus. The centrepiece was the pavlova – a purchased one this year and not my usual homemade one.
For our beverage we chose Bunderberg Lemon Lime & Bitters, a slightly bitter very refreshing fizzy drink that suited the weather we were experiencing.
With a fair amount of food remaining, and temperatures forecast to reach the late 20s, today looks like it will be a good day to do as little as possible!
Have a happy day 😊
