This year we are having Christmas dinner at home by ourselves and outsourced most of the preparations. Simple!

Starters:  smoked salmon, foie gras & lentils, salade noël (really just mixed greens with star-shaped cut carrots).

We do not have a real Christmas tree this year as we will be going away soon. Instead, we found a home fragrance spray which provides that fresh light Christmas tree smell without any of the typical heavy cinnamon note.

This was our tree in 2010.
