I am just loving the holidays! Usually we are away this time of year but partly due to the fact that we are hoping for a European holiday in 2011, we decided to stay home. I have to admit, it is fabulous! Being at home, there is no pressure to be doing something everyday - we are all so chilled and doing our own thing and SO lazy! Although we did have an absolutely amazing Christmas in Koringberg - hellish hot, but super fun. It goes without saying that we stuffed oursleves silly - we are a family of foodies after all and Christmas is a wonderful excuse for overindulgence.
We have watched the entire series of River Cottage and have become Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall addicts thanks to lovely DVD box set sent over to me by my wonderful Polish/English friend Jola. It has made us appreciate our hens even more, but just as well it is not legal to keep a cow in a residential area or we might have been off to the cattle auction!
I hope you are all having a wonderful, restful time - or on the other hand, some fantastic parties! Here are a few pics from Koringberg.
