Christmas is around the corner, I’m done with most of my presents, so I can enjoy the rest of the advent socializing and baking. I want to make biscotti and espresso cookies, the traditional Romanian babka, lemon curd, Christmas chutney and sugarcoated almonds. What can’t you do without for the holidays?
This year we´re celebrating Christmas at home to avoid too much stress and planning and to save a buck or two. The holidays are pretty intense and, with a dog and a cat, traveling is not that carefree. So we´re staying put and hoping for a calm and white Christmas. There´s usually lots to do anyway and the free days come in handy. We´re getting together with my husband´s family one of the days between Christmas and New Year´s Eve and we´re flying to Vienna in January, to meet with my family.
We´ve talked about not buying too many presents this year and rather gift close friends and family some home-made goodies. The house is getting a lamp, hopefully Snoopy by Flos, a new Italian bed linen and a Soda Stream. 😉 What do you usually offer each other or the house?;-)
