The evening after the “Réveillon,” which is Christmas Day, there was another French family dinner – less formal but equally delicious as the one the night before. This festivity started with sipping champagne at 8 p.m., with hors d’ouvres of spiced olives and smoked salmon toasts. Gifts were opened around 9:30, and then dinner was served: entrée, plat, and dessert – less food than the previous evening’s six-course meal which was a good (literally & figuratively)!
I suppose my New Year’s resolution should be to eat less or drink less champagne – pas possible! 🙂
