It is now Boxing Day here and the day has dawned warm and
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 😊
