Christmas menu 2020

Merry Christmas, dear cooks forum friends. So impressed and thrilled with all the cooking and sharing. Each and every post has been a virtual treat. At ours, the story was totally different. Yes, we did have a feast but didn’t hands much time to plan something elaborate. Also, somehow the madness took over and most of the food was massacred before I could get them to pose for photos 😂😂
So, apologies for the bad photos but can vouch for the taste ❤️❤️

This is a dinner menu that can be cooked in less than an hour. All the recipes are quick and easy. (except the cakes) not my department

Butternut squash and sweet potato soup with chilli flakes and creme fraiche.

Cheese and breads

Cocktails galore ( bartender special 😍)

Murg mussallam ( the usual tradition)

Butternut squash stuffed with feta cheese, cranberries and olive crumble

Kerala stew ( again, a tradition)

Roast potatoes and roast vegetables ( Rashmi special).

Lemon drizzle cake

Peach melba
