This is always the same story. What should I make for Christmas eve? What can I cook for New Year Eve? This is getting more difficult when you are just two or four. You want to eat delicious things; but you cannot roast an entire turkey. As a result you get to think more on what you can actually make.
This recipe is made for two to four peoples and is quite easy. You can make serve this with mash potatoes or a celery purée (one of my favourites).
During christmas holidays, I like to eat everyday good and fancy food. Not only around Christmas and New year. We will spent the complete holidays just the two of us with Adrien except for the 24th and the 31th. Maybe some friends will come over and I will have the chance to cook something nice for them. But in the meantime, this is what I am planning to cook for just the both of us :-)!
