Briana had to hand cut the cookies into Christmas shapes.
I conjured up a glaze for the ham with a little bit of orange marmelade, cloves, sugar and nutmeg.
My first time making home-made stuffing. A concoction of dried bread cubes, apples, raisins, cranberries, onions, celery, chicken stock, sage and other spices. It was so good that I made it again a week later.
Briana made this baked brie appetizer, topped with cranberries, apples and cinnamon. Melts in your mouth...
The ham didn't even need to be carved, it pretty much just fell apart. Not to brag, but it was honestly one of the best hams I've ever had and I wasn't the only one that thought that. Italy doesn't know what they're missing.
Family for a day.
About a week later, I went to La Scala with some classmates to see the Swan Lake ballet. Gorgeous theatre, fur coat and red lipstick, fancy for a night.
