Christmas Day in Tassie....

Just a quick post to say that we hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and to wish you all a well celebrated New Years!
Our Christmas Day was a very low key affair... a gentle nudge awake by two hungry pussycats, a leisurely walk around Heritage Park a few blocks behind our house, a breakfast of croissants, warm from the oven and then onto the present opening!
We were lucky to catch up with the lovely Gemma (from Loz and Dinny), her hubby Dunc and their gorgeous brood of three for a delightful afternoon tea (consisting mainly of dessert items as it turns out!) and we were meant to get together with a few other folks for a picnic at Cataract Gorge, but this fell through.
Not to be defeated, we packed up and headed to the beautiful City Park, sat on the grass and enjoyed: BBQ Tandoori Chicken, homemade Coleslaw with Red Cabbage and Fennel, Corn Fritters with a tangy dipping sauce of Sour Cream and Spring Onions, homemade White Chocolate and Pistachio Fudge and topped off with a bottle of Andrew Garrett Sparkling Shiraz..... ahhhh....bliss....

It's tough celebrating Christmas in Tasmania!!
