Christmas has already come to my kitchen a little bit, but there will be more in the course of the month. I will show you here some of the items that I already have and what I have recently eaten. My partner has also been hard-working, as you can see on my new seasonal logo. He gave the VegHog a little bit of seasonal flair. Did you know that hedgehogs hibernate in the winter, but they always wake up for Christmas to celebrate it with the other animals in the forest.
We got a couple of advent calendars, a quality chocolate one and a Skipper’s liquorice pipe one. They said that the chocolate calendar is for children, but I don’t care. I really like the animal illustrations on it and the chocolates are also very nice.
I did some home decorating in the kitchen and moved a new shelf in there. It’s quite practical and gives much more storage space and space for herbs to grow.
Then there are Danish Frogs. They are another brand of very qualitative chocolates.
There is an arsenal of mulled wine in my kitchen, which will still be stocked up for the holidays.
I got long luxury matches to light all my Christmas candles.
This sea buckthorn cheesecake was an absolutely delicious dessert. It was quite big, so I had it on two days. I of course kept the glass and it has become my favourite drinking glass.
I’m planning to use these lingonberry and sour cherry freeze-dried fruits for some Christmas dishes and baking.
I can’t wait to tuck in to these vanille cookies at Christmas. They just melt in your mouth.
We recently had two friends over and I served these snacks: watercress and cheddar scones, tomato tart, vegetable crisps and black finger grapes.
And finally a few of my recent dishes: tempeh burger with this really cool apple that’s red inside, cheese and onion baked potato with vegan frikadeller, butterbean and vegetable soup, spicy olive and onion pizza (depicted before baking and cheese addition), gnocchi with sage butter and salad and vegan burger with potato wedges.
