Special: Late Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve Dinner at my boyfriends!

Happy post Christmas and pre- New Years?! Oh my, how time flies...unfortunately I'm at home sick with some type of flu like sickness and it's really bothering me. I'm drowning my sorrows with boxes of tissue papers, lots of blogging and reading up for school!

I'm going to start making a list of 'things to do in 2013' as I really must start to learn how to plan time and organize activities to do!

Continue below for dishes prepared by my boyfriend!
Photos of home made Thanksgiving and pre Christmas dinner 2012 at my boyfriends!
My Thanksgiving look I wore to his house! I went easy on the eyes and used a sleek blush from the Blush by 3 palette in the shade Guirupe! (Check my review on the palette here!) It's suppose to be similar to Rose Gold which I am lusting after!
One of my favorite outfits! This pink/purple/blue striped men's shirt from Hang Ten with jean shorts and sandals! I went back recently and got different colors of this shirt! They fit so nicely untucked as well!

Thanksgiving Dinner 2012!
Freshly dipped strawberries in fondue chocolate made by my boyfriends' mother! They look so nice on the blue plate and were real yummy!


The dinner table all set up!
The giant turkey all carved up, there was still so much behind in the kitchen! I was so surprised by how tasty turkey meat is!
The secret family stuffing from inside the turkey. It was so delicious, I went back for seconds! Bread, celery, raisins, herbs of all sorts!
Fluffy soft potatoes!
Thanksgiving dinner thanks to the boyfriend!
Beautiful and deliciously light strawberry shortcake made by his mother! She's a master dessert maker!

Christmas Eve dinner 2012

A lovely center piece on the dining table made by my boyfriends mother!
Entire roasted leg of lamb, cooked on a gas grill with a molasses mixture on the outside! The meat fell off the bone!
There he is carving away at that meaty leg!
Delicious bread pudding with plenty of almonds and raisins! So yummy!
Roasted potatoes with bacon and onions! Helped him make this, easy and yummy!
The sliced up leg of lamb, the meat was very tender mostly and went very well with the sides!
Blanched, then lightly sauteed french beans with Parmesan!
The leg after being completely carved!
Christmas eve dinner! Got to meet his visiting grandparents!
His moms first time bread pudding which was amazing and home made choco pudding!
With his family! He's so handsome when he's dressed up. I got that shirt for him, its a bit big and we have to roll the cuffs up once but the color is so lovely on him!

I'm been having a great time seeing everyone food posts! Your dinners, eats and time out with friends and family! Do continue blogging into 2013!

Feel free to comment! 
Thank you!

    1. Aww...its an interesting meat. I can definitely live without it but worth trying. I love fried chicken though, such a sinful easy meal! The puddings was awesome! It's quite easy to make at home though!

    1. Hah, thanks for gettin back! Yeah, that's what happens when you have many things open at once! I tend to finish them off around the same time! Softener has become a replacement to toner in some skincare lines, seems to mostly be asian brands like shiseido! Check it out, its been doing good for me!
