A very Merry Christmas to our family, friends, acquaintances, and blog readers around the world. May this time brings you peace, happiness and good health.
Benno and I are happy to be spending this winter in our travel trailer here in Florida. The weather forecast for today called it “mostly sunny and pleasant with a daytime of 25C/77F.” Sounds perfect to me. Our yesterday’s Christmas Eve dinner consisted of a warmed up pre-roasted turkey breast with whole cranberry sauce, yams in brown butter and brussels sprouts. Today’s dinner will be Ribeye steaks cooked on the BBQ accompanied with fresh asparagus. German white wine goes with everything!
As a German tradition that we have kept in all of our married years is to have a “Bunte Teller” for Christmas, translated to a plate heaped with Christmas cookies and goodies. Our plates were not big enough to fit everything and we didn’t include mixed nuts or fruits. So if we look a bit chubby cheeked in future photos, you know we are still working on finishing those Bunte Teller!!
Have a wonderful time everyone and I will report soon again.
By the way, look at this flowering Christmas cactus.
