**Q&A with Rhian Cahill**
We also put our family tree up on December 1. I load a Christmas CD in the player and everyone gathers around to hang the decorations on the tree. Of course this year will be a little different as Son#1 moved out of home recently and Princess One is 21 two days before our usual tree trimming. It’s going to be the beginning of new traditions I think.
I’m not sure I have any. Oh, maybe it was the year Princess One had the Chicken Pox. 🙂
We’ve never done the whole mistletoe thing but I have kissed Santa in front of our Christmas tree.
After four kids I’m outta love for holiday movies and all those nights of carols by candlelight have done me in for the ‘traditional’ Christmas song but there’s an Aussie song called Six White Boomers that I totally loved when the kids were little. They’d sing that one at the top of their lungs. Always made me smile.

Message from Rhian:
This is great for those of us that don’t like to cook. 🙂
2 cups Arborio rice, crushed garlic, any vegetables you have in the fridge, 1 litre chicken stock, oil (you can pretty much add whatever you want)
You need a rice cooker. Turn on the cooker and add some oil, once heated add the garlic vegetables and stir for a minute. Add rice, stir until everything is coated in the oil and sizzling nicely. Give that a minute or so then put in the stock. Make sure the liquid covers everything by about a centimetre. Make sure the cooker in on cook, put the lid on and walk away. 🙂
