It was just me and the boys this morning and since my husband had to work today we celebrated Christmas as a family yesterday. Our usual Christmas dinner is with friends. We gather for a Brazilian feast and everyone brings various dishes. My usual contribution is dark chocolate truffles and vinegrette – a Brazilian style salsa. Today I wanted chicken soup for lunch and I like to add root vegetables to it. This parsnip caught my eye. The beautiful pattern in the middle and all the different shades of white are so neat. It just looks so festive!
So whether you’re with family or friends or maybe just you and your wee ones I hope you take comfort in the hope of the Nativity. I wish you a very happy and peaceful Christmas!
