WEEKLY WINNERS - Christmas Eve
More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners
Of course the winner of this week was our Christmas Eve celebration in Amsterdam together with our son, his girlfriend and her parents.
A beautiful Christmas tree was standing in a corner
and underneath a lot of gifts !
The cook was our son, here preparing a delicious meal
the table was set and if you count the number of glasses you can be sure that we are not a group from the AA ! There was for white wine, red wine and water of course.
The first one who unwrapped his gift was Jersey the dog who spent Christmas with us as his owner went back home to the UK. I think he was the happiest dog in the world with his bone !
Mr. Gattino didn't get a bone, but an Italian sausage
and a portable DVD player so that he can watch his "bang, bang" action movies in his bed !
Amongst other gifts our son got this very practical apron, with a lot of pockets. It is devided in two parts so that you can hold a pot with your hands without being burnt.
Jersey helped checking the parfum, apparently it smelled good !
and then he thought he should watch over the gifts
This was the starter. Scallops with an avocado mousse. It was so delicious that I forgot to take a picture of the main course which was grilled thuna steaks with wild rice and green asparagus.
The cook !
There were several of these big chocolates, with little Santas or other figures.
