I just can't wait to eat my weight in food on Christmas Day! It's just going to be us 3 this year for our first family Christmas and I want to make it special with delicious food. I don't know about you but I want some inspiration!
What will you be making?
I was thinking a ham, salad, raw fish in coconut cream, pesto and pinenut pasta salad and maybe a potato bake!

I'm doing a potato bake and a whole salmon with lemon and dill. Taking them to mums house for lunch where we will BBQ the salmon.
I also want to do a range of sweets like rum balls, biscuits, fudge etc.
I can't wait either!
