I went with a 'typical Aussie Christmas" theme in the decorations and the food.
We ate prawns and chicken kebabs with mango salsa.
DH barbecued the steak and there were lots of salads: potato salad: pumpkin and beetroot with spinach and cashews: coleslaw; a garden salad; and a salad with cauliflower and peas and beans with a creamy orange dressing.
There was also a ham -of course- and pineapple to go with it.
The non-compulsory desert was fruit salad with rosewater syrup and Eton smash. Everyone had some!
People chose their own drinks -but I enjoyed a very fine sparkling wine from Little River in the Swan Valley.
Coffee was most welcome after all that.
We had a lovely day.
There are lots of leftovers!
Good -that means my duties are at an end and I can go back to quilting through the Christmas -New Year shutdown at work.
