The turkey with two stuffings was prepped and ready to go.
A Christmas breakfast of snacks was in order (after the Bumble B'eers had eaten their chocolate coins and biscuits from Santa that is).
There has to be a bit of smoked salmon at Christmas.
The table was set; Mr Bee ironed the table cloth for me. It is his regular Christmas job :)
The branches on the table are real which was lovely as it smelt like Christmas. I love our fake tree but it does lack that special bit of Christmas pine-i-ness.
I opted for a silver table this year, keeping the traditional Christmas red to the lounge room.
Halfway through the frenzy of cooking.
I always try to be organised, it reduces stress.
The all important cranberry sauce.
Ta da! The turkey is done. I have cooked a goose every year for Christmas since we moved to Guernsey and although the turkey was tasty I think I will swap back to goose next year - live and learn.
Merry Christmas, especially to all our family and friends in Australia.
We miss you and love you.
