favourite coffee shop. Presents are wrapped, suitcases are packed and the house is clean. Ish. I decided to reward all of my hard work with a walk to the coffee shop for a latte and cinnamon bun since I won't be having either of those for a while (tonight we fly home to celebrate Christmas with our family and friends!). On my way out I checked the mail and discovered a beautiful Christmas card sent from a dear friend. Perfect timing! Let the celebrating begin!

this Christmas playlist (thank you A Beautiful Mess!) during all Christmas related making. I listened to it while cooking and eating Thai Chicken Curry. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil over high heat. Stir-fry 4 teaspoons of red curry paste for 30 seconds. Add 1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken, cut in thin strips, and stir-fry for 3 minutes. Stir in 1 coarsely chopped onion and stir-fry for 1 minute or until the onion is softened. Add 1 sweet red pepper, cut into thin strips, and the zest of 1 lemon, and stir-fry for 1 minute. Stir in 1 cup of coconut milk, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and bring to boil. Cook for about 2 minutes or until liquid is reduced slightly. Serve with rice. Enjoy!

Chatelaine's Nutella kiss cookies. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir 2 1/2 cups of flour with 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt in a medium bowl and set aside. Beat 1 cup of unsalted butter, at room temperature with 3/4 cup granulated sugar until fluffy. Beat in 1 egg and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Gradually beat in the flour mixture, just until combined. Roll dough into 1 inch round balls and set on a baking sheet. Bake in the centre of an oven until golden, 11 to 12 minutes. Let cookies cool on sheet for 1 minute. Transfer to a rack to cool completely. Pipe or spoon a Nutella dollop in the centre of each cookie. Easy peasy.
