On the 23rd of November, I travelled to London with my boyfriend and my cousin…I realize now, that it’s been over a week that I have returned, and I haven’t posted anything about my trip yet. In my defense, I didn’t have enough time, till now to look at the photos and create a post. Plus, I wanted to do my giveaway first, to give you plenty of time to enter, before Christmas (in case the winner wants to order something for the holidays)! If you haven’t entered the giveaway yet, you can do it now. But it’s only open for my Greek readers this time, so I ask my international readers to forgive me for this. Today, I’m sharing with you my first full day in London. Meaning, I arrived there at 2AM, so my days there started on Saturday morning.
Hello sweeties! How was your week? It’s Friday today, and I’m really excited, cause we’re almost 1 week away from my little Blog’s first anniversary, which gives me great pleasure. I may have a surprise for you, but you will have to stay tuned to find out, so follow this blog any way you like! I would be grateful.
I’m also really excited to finally have the holiday photos ready for you, as I promised on my previous posts! As many of you may already expect, there are mostly food pictures, a few gifts, decorations and some miscellaneous stuff. But those of you who follow my blog for a long time, know how much I love cooking and baking. So let’s get started!
Every year around Christmas, for the last 5-6 years, it has become a tradition for me to make Christmas treats. It may have taken me a little bit longer this year due to the problem I had with my oven, but I finally made them. My close relatives and friends know by now that they should expect a big platter of my homemade melomakarona as a gift. Melomakarona are a traditional dessert of Greek cuisine, prepared primarily during the Christmas holiday season. They can be generally described as “Christmas cookies soaked in syrup of diluted honey (méli in Greek) and then sprinkled with crushed walnuts” (source).
Hello my dear readers! Today is the last day of 2011, so this is my last post of this year…Are you excited about the New Year that’s coming?
This is my usual month in pics post, but you should expect another one with all the holiday pictures in a future post. So, let’s start:
