Merry Christmas (once again) from the Czech Republic!! As we are away from our family and friends this Christmas, I wanted to share what we did/ate yesterday on Christmas Eve and today on Christmas.
After a morning breakfast of hot cross buns, we listened to Bing Crosby and Michael Buble sing Christmas songs. Mid-Afternoon, Walter started to make our Christmas Eve dinner. He took a small one pound ham, pouring honey and rum on the ham with basil and salt baking it in the oven for 45 minutes. I made super creamy mashed potatoes – I boiled the potatoes for 10 minutes, mashing them and adding whipping cream, cheese, butter, and dill. Both were amazing. Seriously good. Every bite of ham just melted in my mouth. We ate dinner while watching White Christmas with the amazing Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney. And, of course, there were several Skype dates with family and friends – loved seeing/talking with you all!
Waking up a little late, we had my family’s traditional Christmas breakfast of scrambled eggs and ham (leftover from yesterday) with buttered toast.
We watched several Christmas episodes of The Office while eating before we read the Christmas story from both Matthew and Luke thanking God for his never-ending blessings. Afterwards, we went for a short walk around Wenceslas Square. The streets were still pretty crowded – not surprising though.
When we got back home, the hubs began making another amazingly delicious dinner. This time it was fried chicken and baked macaroni and cheese – SO good. And the hubs found a tangy honey mustard and I found a sour cream ranch sauce – pretty perfect (yes, I’m talking about my hubs). I want more just seeing these photos. On an unChristmas note, we watched The Major & The Minor with Ginger Rogers. She’s so talented and better looking as a redhead.
Merry Christmas to you all! What did you do this Christmas?
