Christmas cheer.

Merry christmas lovely bloggers and blogettes. I hope you are all enjoying the best of times with your cherished loved ones. While missing my family immensely i am still feeling cheerful spending the day listening to great music, drinking delicious red wine and cooking amazing food to share with my two flatmates. On the menu:
Roast Beef - courtesy of moi' via With made from scratch red wine and vegetable gravy and cauliflower from cheese sauce. On the side creamy mashed potatoes.
Apple and Pear Crumble - stewed apple and pear with a crunchy rolled oat topping served with freshly whipped cream.
How can you not like christmas when there is so much food to be consumed!
I can't believe in a weeks time another year will be over. It still scares me how fast time goes, i know it sounds like a total cliche but it is true. The day is already long gone before the next one is ready to start, with this is mind it makes me glad to be in America this year. A change of scenery, people, music, food and culture can not be classed as time wasted. Life really is too short.
Sending all the love out to my family and friends in New Zealand, and to all the lovely people that take time out from their day to stop by Talking Bird. It is always a pleasure having you here.
Here's two songs i think you should listen to.
GroupLove - Colours.

Nouvelle Vague - The Killing Moon.

I hope your day is extra lovely.
