Merry Christmas and Happy 2012 from Bread And Sniff It

What did everyone do over the Christmas period??  These were a few of my favourite things
  1. EATING  A FISTFUL OF GLAZED HAM. I tried a Nigella Lawson recipe, I trust her, she has that look, like one of your friend's Mums, who always convinces you to eat another pudding. You can tell she isn't one for counting calories.
  2. Decorated my Christmas Tree. My Mum has sent me the most beautiful Christmas decoration of a little Maori girl. I love it, that and the golden fantails that peak their heads around from my fake tree branches.
  3. Enjoyed a Summer Christmas. Yes I understand that a white Christmas may be amazing but to me nothing beats the summer, lounging by the pool, eating fresh seafood and day-time watching/playing the cricket.
  5. Spending time with friends and family. Although I wasn't be in New Zealand for Christmas this year, I had my second family the Smith/Williams to hang out with. I couldn't think of a better alternate family to be with.  Plus it's always fun to hang out with people who are in love with food as much as I am.

  6. French Champagne.  Only a recent addition to my Christmas loves, but this is the only time of the year that I can convince Nick that buying a real French Champagne is worth it. That and it holds a special place in our hearts as we went on a trip to the Champagne region in France the day we got engaged.
So what did everyone else do this year?  I hope you surrounded yourselves with all the people and things that you love while also taking to the time to help those less fortunate.  Christmas after all is about giving.  So I hope you all had a very happy and safe Christmas and that everyone is getting geared up to jump into the year 2012.

P.S. My new years resolution is to beat the dismal amount 26 blog posts that I had last year.  I want to get closer to the 46 I had in 2010.  I'm pretty sure I can do that.
