Christmas / Holiday Wrap Up / Randomness

So dinner didn't exactly turn out as fancy as the photos in the previous post but at least it was delicious! Nice quiet evening at home with the cats flanking the chairs waiting for food to fall.

The hubster gave me one of the most awesome presents on the face of the planet! Chalk board stickers that I have been searching for ages for but never manage to find BLACK black. Instead all I found was greenish black which was not good enough. Since we're renting we do not want to paint the cupboards so this was the easiest solution to update the kitchen. 

The chalk I got from a super awesome friend for my birthday. Although it was intended for my hair and to graffiti the neighborhood, it was used here first. The kitchen looks much better now ;)




Oh yes.. chicken cat Boomer says hello

Christmas Dinner

I can't believe it but i'm feeling "Christmassy". It will be the first time we will be cooking a quasi traditional dinner but scaled down for 2 (and maybe some left overs for the fuzz balls) and without the turkey.

Here's what's on the menu!

Roast Chicken with Mushroom, Walnut, White Truffle and Sausage Meat Stuffing - recipe from What Katie Ate


Roasted Potatoes - recipe from What Katie Ate


Sherried Carrots - recipe from Sweet Paul



Before and after photos to follow :)

Circus

Hmmm... what to do with a tonne of cigar boxes and birthdays for 2 of the most interesting people in Luxembourg? Circus themed diorama complete with horribly photo-shopped Ben & Pepper faces! 

I simply love the home furnishings and accessories at Ben & Pepper's


The Stage!

The Stars!

This is hopefully  the beginning of many more...dioramas...

Alsace Christmas Markets

Writing this post has proven to be semi-difficult... we just came back from 3 days of Christmas market (Ribeauvill√©, Riquewihr, Kayserberg, Colmar and Strassbourg) bonanza and needless to say, I am in a decorating mood. Currently I'm trying to do 100 things at the same time and it doesn't help that the gingerbread behind me is beckoning me to ice the crap out of it!
