We cooked for ten people when there were only seven of us at home for Christmas dinner. For one never knows who may drop by. We had had our share of "the proverbial uninvited guest" with the greatest of Christian charity results. While we remain simple in our life style we are adventurous in our food preparation.
This year my son came up with his version of Christmas Eve dinner and I came up with a special five spice and belly pork stuffing for the turkey. We tried to use as little sugar as possible.
The traditional mince pies - Iceland brand - from Seria of Brunei - easy dessert - so I did not really cook this meal!!
As we ate dinner we prayed in our hearts that all our friends and relatives were too having a roof over their head (Mary and Joseph had to stay in an animal shed as there was no room in the inns) and a bowl of nourishing food (I am sure Mary and Joseph brought their little picnic basket or the registration of their son and their own census) in front of them as Christ was born in Bethlehem more than 2000 years ago.
What are your thoughts this Christmas?
Blessings at Christmas for everyone!!
