Christmas lunch for the Wonderful Women 2019

Welcome :-)
The annual Christmas lunch for "The Wonderful Women" took place this afternoon for a complete group of great girl friends

Cooking pot walnut bread & classic walnut bread as back-up
As usual we had the usual tapas selection from Osteriet together with some home-made cooking pot walnut bread. Actually baked two bread, as I this morning realized, that I had added too much salt into the cooking pot. 3 tablespoons of salt instead of 3 teaspoons of salt. I decided to bake the bread, but I also baked a back-up walnut bread walnut bread in case the cooking pot bread could not be eaten due to too salty taste. Both bread was actually eaten with great enjoyment of all people around the table.

My presents for the annual pakkeleg
The tradition also describes, that we have to play the gift play (pakkeleg in Danish) using a specific card game, so no dices as normal. All participants bring between 2-8 gifts, and in the card game you either end up with most of the gifts or not gifts at all.

Parcel mountain
Actually we are very trendy with our sustainable approach to playing "pakkeleg" as our presents have NOT been brought for this specific event, but they can be everything from your cupboard such as books, kitchen items not used etc.

We have also learned, that we have to give approx 3-4 gifts to each participants as starting point to avoid, that either one ends up with all the gifts, or that the table ends with all the gift.

Ready to play "pakkeleg"
We still need to get the text on one of the play card rewritten, as it has a text, saying you should give a gift to each person under the age of 25 years, so here we are awaiting the new card text to be made, lets hope it will be ready for next years Christmas lunch. We have now waited for two years, lets hope we get this extra card for the play in 2020 :-) 

As usual we spend some great hours in good company getting up to date with each others lifes :-)

We ended the Christmas lunch with a cup of tee/coffee and a slice of this cherry cream cheese cake Christmas style.

And I got these great hostess gifts, a warming ice remover for the car windows, a green plant and a Tupperware storage container with some sweets :-) Uuhhmm
