Christmas is without a doubt one of my favourite times of the year. I love our family traditions, I love sharing the joy of giving with my boys and I love catching up with old friends who don't come home to Kadina very often.
Brett and I hosted the Loveridge Christmas(13 people) for the first time and cooked a traditional roast meal - we had roast turkey, roast pork & roast beef as well as 2 homemade stuffings accompanied by vegie dishes - roast potato & pumpkin, peas & corn, beans & carrots, cauliflower/broccoli and my favourite tomato/zucchini/onion! For dessert we had traditional Christmas pudding served with custard & mock brandy sauce (someone forgot to buy the brandy - oops!!), Christmas cassata or homemade fruit mince tarts - yum!
We were thrilled with how it turned out!

Boxing Day was spent at the Beach with my family, my Mum & Dad & The Barker Family (my sister Judith, her husband Mike & their children Charlotte & Henry) It was so lovely to spend a nice day at the beach and Mum did a big roast meal again - it was delicious & we were absolutely full to the brim!
I am really excited about where Pink Apple is heading in 2013, I have so many new ideas and plans for this year. I can't wait to share them with you!!
I hope you are staying cool in this warm weather!
