December 14th

WHAT?! Only ten more days until Christmas Eve! It really feels like we just came back from our honeymoon yesterday, how did time pass by so quickly (once again…)? I cannot believe my nephew is turning six months in just a matter of days, it really feels surreal how fast he is growing right under our eyes. I have had an intense of a month with literally non-stop of work and only (without any exaggeration) two days off during all that time and that includes the weekends. I have managed to squeeze in hosting several christmas parties and a night out so you can imagine I have felt sleep deprived to say the least!  I haven’t had much time to capture the spirit of Christmas, until today as I finally finished everything and can relax until Christmas and New Years! With that being said, I have Celine Dion’s ‘These are the special times’ album playing in the background, while I have a table full of hyacinths, an espresso and a plate of caramelized figs ready to set me off into Christmas spirits.

How to cook figs:

Halve figs. Sprinkle with brown sugar on the meat side. On a hot pan with a good amount of butter, place the figs in it with the sugar side facing down. Cook for some minutes and turn over once caramelized, sprinkle with a bit of salt. Serve with shaved brazilian nut and hemp seeds. You can try with a slice of blue cheese and walnuts, a delicious combo!
