1: I'm not very good at decorating spaces, plus we have very little free space to work with, so this was our little Christmas corner.
2: Over the holidays we played tons of new boardgames. One of my favorites was Egizia, which is more of a non-competitive board game perfect for sore losers like moi.
3: holiday guacamole, which is the same as regular guacamole but just seems to taste more festive.
4: my husband,B, made the most scrumptious from scratch vanilla custard tarts topped with blackberries.
5: he also made peppermint cookies with dark chocolate bottoms. They're a sinful treat.
6: we made a bevy of DIY ornaments for our wee potted tree. My favorite ornament has to be this clay Starro figure that B made.
7: Every once in a while, I miss Filipino food. I made some slow cooked pork, akin to Crispy Pata, but without the hassle of frying. Lots of bread sauce was had that day.
8: Almond cookies with tea to break the rich food monotony.
