I’ve been quite tired and busy since the New Year. It definitely had an impact on both, the blog and my life. But now that I am finally getting more relaxed, so I can catch up on everything that was going on. I just made a new order, first one from Net-a-Porter, which means that I am truly back =)
Going back in couple of weeks ago, I really enjoyed the winter in KZ. It feels right to celebrate New Year with family, snow, good food, fireworks and, of course, New Year’s Tree and gifts.
Let’s start with the sweets before the New Year. Brought Godiva for my sister from HK. Bennetts are from NZ. I should stop eating chocolate… Maybe one day it will happen. Could not resist buying Santa Toffifee in Metro;) Every time I go home, eating takes a huge part in my trips. Everything is familiar, checked by myself and just so good… A part of an enormous variety of great (but not dietary) food New Year family table Traditional Olivie salad (the bottom one for my brother, the top one for rest of us) and herring under a fur coat Microwave oven backed chicken and sliced goose Before my departure I wanted to go to my favorite restaurant in Ast, but on the way there we stopped by a shop and bought so much delicious food… We didn’t make it to the restaurant. Next time =)
Chicken kebab, chicken cutlet and a bread Veal Prince Orloff Zander Samosas, pirozhki and syrniki Sour cream pie and small pies with boiled condensed milk and nuts. Our New Years Tree was a little skinny, but natural and still gorgeous :D My sister and I were hiding the gifts we prepared for our family behind the bed (and our mom saw them) before putting them under the tree on the New Year And finally, some winter sceneries Love,
