christmas eve dinner

Christmas Eve. Satoshi is working as I type this.

Usually on weekdays I think I've mentioned that we don't eat dinner together, the Eve was no exception.

My dinner started out with Anchor's Christmas Ale...dark and cinnamon-y. Different but I liked it.

Main dish was chicken fajitas.

I bought two grilled chicken breasts from the yakitori shop in our shopping arcade.

And used the veggies I had in my fridge.

Since the grilled chicken breasts had a slight shoyu sauce on them, I just heated them up.

For the veggies, I sauteed them in some oil and sprinkled some of Penzey's Arizona Dreaming seasoning (kinda tex-mex).

Then at the end I put the juice of 1 lemon and cooked until the liquid evaporated.


At about 22:00, Satoshi came home and while he had dinner, I had dessert, which I had picked up at Mior, a shop in our shopping arcade.

I had part of this Chocolat Noel.

Vanilla brulee, chocolate ganache....very rich...ack, too rich.

And part of this Gateau Rouge.

Strawberry mousse, pistachio mousse & some almonds...I liked this one better.

Tomorrow is Christmas Day, but it isn't a holiday here and Satoshi is scheduled to work.

Am wondering what to do during the day and what to do for dinner tomorrow.

Merry Christmas Kat.

Your Christmas Eve dinner sounds and looks great.

I'm sure you'll be able to find something delicious to cook for Christmas while listening to those seasonal ukulele tunes from home.

What ever you do I hope you have a good time.

"pistachio mousse..." That is simply fascinating!

Thanks Laura, hope your Christmas will be nice!

Thanks TK. Enjoy your trip home.

Thanks Sasmita :)

Thanks Rona, Satoshi isn't much of a fried chicken kind of guy, so I'll probably get something at the depachika :)

Take care everyone!

I remember those Japanese days of wondering what to do on Western holidays till hubby got home from work! Hope you have a fabulous Christmas, whatever you decide to do.

K and S said...

thanks Abigail :)

Take care.

Kim said...

What? Really? I thought Japan celebrated Christmas.

K and S said...

They celebrate the Eve more than the Day Pocky :)

Take care.
