Planning: essential for this type of thing! First I found someone who could care for my sweet little pup.....Although generally speaking he is quiet, to spend 3 days inside and to be exact in the kitchen would have been too much for him! So I left him with MIL every morning while I cooked.
Next, I baked some goodies for my guests on Mon morning, baked the desserts on Tues morning and cooked the chicken on Wed morning. Thursday, afternoon I than did the veggies (potatoes & braised cabbage) and just before ppl started arriving put the entree to cook!
Slovak soup ( provided by my cousins)
Roast chicken with roast potatoes & braised red cabbage
Spiced cheese cake & chocolate pudding
all recipes will be posted up next!
Christmas day was spent with Dave's parents and visiting my grandparents were I also met most of the family there. It was a nice first Christmas with our baby boy who ain't so baby anymore! We didn't take any pics really but will also post some random pics of the week soon!
