We started the Christmas weekend off with a dinner out with friends December 23.
Christmas Eve was spent at a friends house. Each of us brought a dish and drinks and we chatted, ate and laughed the night away. When I looked around the table it was evident just how multicultural our lives have become - Joe and I represented Canada, our hosts were Japanese and we also had Indian, Indonesian and British couples.
Christmas day, Joe and I woke up and watched "A Christmas Story" downloaded ahead of time, ate cinnamon buns made by me, and relaxed. Later on we spent a few hours on the beach before returning home to make Pad Thai. Certainly not very Christmassy but fine nonetheless.
However, I did enjoy something Canadian...
I'd been saving that "Caesar Pleaser" packet since August when a fellow Canadian gave it to me to try. Not near as good as the 'real' thing but did fine in a jam.
