Christmas and New Year

I hope it is not too late to post these pictures! After a very relaxing Christmas it is taking quite a while to get back up to speed. I cook the turkey and vegetables, others in my family cook and bring the ham, the Christmas pudding, and the Christmas cake.

Gluten-free Christmas cake made by my aunt.

My Christmas sandwich, THE sandwich of the year. I look forward to this all year. It is ciabatta bread with every element of the Christmas meal inside.

Working with clay and paint with my sister (and Beep).

New Year’s Eve soba noodles with my dad as is traditional in Japan. Just Hungry has a good explanation and recipe of the tradition in this post on Year-End soba.

A friend’s decorations

New Year’s day was lovely and bright and sunny.
