Yesterday, Christmas day, we had 10 friends over for dinner. It’s not often we have people over. I don’t know why. I guess everyone seems so busy and most of our friends live in Amsterdam (and we in Haarlem). Sorry excuses I know! After having such a good time yesterday I think we really need to do this more often!
I started Monday with Christmas cookies. They were simple flour/sugar/butter cookies, decorated with red marzipan, white cream cheese frosting and green colored butter frosting.
P & K brought the first course for dinner – bright red cold soup! It was delicious.
For the main course we had cheese fondue, raclette, beef stew, and a couple of salads. I think everyone liked the food. It’s not your traditional Christmas dinner, but I thought it would be a fun change.
Here’s a sweet photo of Z. and M. decorating one of the cakes we had for dessert.
Here’s to friends and special dinners. Let’s do it again soon!
