New Years eve was celebrated with good friends who just got back from their Polish Christmas holiday, They brought back a whole box of Polish goodies for us. Counting numerous bottles of alcohol, lovely chocolate and a massive Polish New Years cake.
Alistair cooked a beautiful meal (I made the starter though, a very simple but delicious prawn cocktail)
But the star dish was a wonderful, perfect cooked medium/rare beef wellington, with green beans and mash and a fantastic red wine sauce. (sorry no pictures) but the recipe can be found here.
We were supposed to finnish the meal with cheese & biscuits - but we were so full and the drinks kept flowing..... So we never got around to have any!
The kids counting two 6 year old girls and two younger boys had a great night with a 'Disco' in Ophelia's room. Later on when the boys were a sleep we all joined in for a bit of 'just dance' on the Wii, very entertaining.
Happy New Year
