Christmas Eve

After all the festivities of the weekend, Christmas Eve at the kitchen was a model in simplicity.

A simple roasted chicken, dressed in herb de provence. 

The chicken was served with roasted potatoes, grilled brussels sprout and, for the first time attempt, baked cauliflower.

People came, people left, wishes exchanged and this was deemed the simplest Christmas eve at somerville kitchen; the way Christmas eves should be.

With all the Christmas goodies landing at the doorstep, dessert was skipped. Instead, a Christmas chicken salad was served instead.

At the end of the night, what was really enjoyed were the gift exchanges. I think next year, I will skip dinner and just open gifts, drink eggnog and eat sweet goodies on Christmas eve.

Merry Christmas!
