Last year our Christmas eve was pretty silent. Some relatives living abroad weren’t able to make it. There was too much food, too little to do 😦 So unlike Christmas Eve 2010 when the whole family’s there… We all dressed up in green, each one trying to outdo the other.lol And we wrote our names down in little pieces of paper for our little Monito Monita/ Exchange gifts. To me Christmas Eve with family means a lot of things and one of the words that I can’t help but associate with the season is FOOD —- like LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of it. We eat like the world’s about to end.lol In fact, I feel like I eat more on Christmas Eve than the rest of the year combined. Oh boy.. ^^ Below are photos from Christmas Eve 2010.
By the time you reach the end of this post, you’re prolly already suffering from a stroke. ^^
Here’s my happy news… This year, the family’s complete again– well almost.. we’re doing exchange gifts again and dress up in green and it’ gonna be awesome! ^^

Incredible choice! Reminds me very much of some very good times in Bahrain with friends who made very similar dishes, minus the first,…
oh you know its a grand celebration when you see that roasted pig lol
Hee hee – please don’t tell me you pluck the eyes! In Azerbaijan it is a pile of sheep’s testicles, and while we’re at it, in Spain we had a festive plate of the same of a bull, and in New Zealand the sheep version are called mountain oysters. It was a friend from China who always plucked eyeballs out of anything we were roasting, either hunted or bought, yet she was such a quiet, demure woman otherwise..
pluck eyes?? me?? oh hell no. lol only thing i’ll ever pluck are my eyebrows
meh..only if i can write sumthin dark… can i ?? ^^
