Christmas in July, Sydney (5 July 2014)


Winter feasting with friends

Thanks to my friends Chris and Fintan for putting on a yummy Christmas in July aka #FinChrisMas2014 with roast chicken, lamb and all the trimmings. Fintan even made some Irish Soda Bread which was very impressive. Complete with cute Christmas decorations and a punch fountain with free flowing 'Dog on the Beach' dogtail cocktail quickly put everyone in the festive spirit. I scored myself a cheese container in the Kris Kringle and took a few bauble selfies as you do. Next year I think it might be my turn to host so if you have any great festive recipes to share please let me know. I'm thinking a turducken might be the go?

SNAPSHOT REVIEW:
PROS: Festive cheer to keep you warm in the colder weather
CONS: We don't get snow in Sydney
MUST TRY: Dog on the Beach dogtail
VERDICT: Lots of fun with good friends, yummy food and wicked drinks is always a good way to forget about the Winter chills
It's not a real party unless you have a punch fountain
'Dog on the Beach' dogtail hehe

This July hasn't been that cold but I guess wintery enough to share a Christmas dinner with friends.

Favourite parts of the year - taking out christmas d├ęcor from storage and hanging them up. And doing in July is one of the best ideas I've had in a long time! When you throw in the food to boot… I don't think life can get any better than this!
