The way to my heart is through my stomach...

It's been quiet amongst these parts recently. Once I started my Christmas holidays, I assumed there would be lots of time to chillax and pen me some posts, but alas, 3 days of deep clean, a week of house-guests and then Christmas festivities kept me well away from writing here. Truthfully, I had almost forgotten what it was like to do something without my camera or without thinking about how I might blog about it! The fabulous news is that I can now tell you about some of my festive frolics over the next week or so.

Today, I am talking presents. I hope Santa was generous with you this year. I have a deep love of presents: choosing, buying, giving, enjoying.....if it's wrapped up I love it. Materialistic? A little bit - with me it's the thought that counts and as me and my man set ourselves a budget this year (so I avoided drowning him in gifts), I think we both did really well with our cash.

So, for Christmas this year, and to help me fulfill one of my dreams, I will be going to eat here:

 For those in the know, Jason Atherton is a two Michelen star chef and this restaurant is in the top 10 in the UK. Next week I will be travelling to London to choose from these:
 (Cured salmon and deliciousness)
(Red Mullet and deliciousness!)
(Duck and, for some people who eat duck, deliciousness!)
(Tiramisu - Hot Coffee Chocolate)
(Peanut Butter and Jelly - Michelen Style)
I am not sure I am going to be able to leave without eating at least two desserts. Gluttonous? Yep. This is a once in a lifetime experience and I am taking it with two hands and scoffing it all up.The boy did very good!

If you fancy helping me choose what to eat, you can find the menu here. I can't promise to take pictures while I am there - it will depend on how over-excited I get and how schmancy it is when we're there. My mouth is watering just staring at the last picture as I type. Have you guys ever gone gormet? What's your favourite dinner ever?How was your Christmas?
It won't be as long until next time, I promise.

The duck and peanut butter & jelly please! Wow. That stuff looks amazing. Makes me want to go home and cook something gourmet!

Yum! Such a cool present - food and company! I'd vote for two desserts, too (I mean, how can you even limit yourself to only two?)! Great you enjoyed your time off the grid and good to have you back - I was kind of worried your computer had been washed away in the floods! ;-)
