Christmas Delights.

I celebrated Christmas Eve with myself. 
It's not a big deal in the U.S. but it's THE main holiday back in Germany so I wanted to make it special.
I skyped with my family for hours, went on a prolonged dog walk with Dewey - the puppy I'm dog sitting over the holidays - and then spent a good amount of time in the kitchen making myself some special food. 
Oh and I topped it off with eating too many Rocher chocolates and watching a German movie. 
A good day through and through, although I wish I could have been closer to my loved ones.

The food:
Sauerbraten (German roast), heirloom potatoes, cooked red cabbage, mousse au chocolate with vanilla whipped cream
