A full Christmas dinner today with all the carols, crackers pressies & stuff that makes a great Christmas Day.
Eight of us sat down to eat our early dinner before Brian & Lesley fly home to NZ tomorrow.
I haven't cooked a proper Christmas dinner for so long but everything went so smoothly it was a pleasure doing it.
To us today it's Christmas Day in our house.
Happy Christmas everybody, xxxxx
Three good things:
1. I am converted to buying a turkey crown. I have resisted up to now as I love the legs best but today the crown was a doddle to cook & carved beautifully!
2. The pudding flamed beautifully!
3. A very expensive white wine given to me by a B&B went down beautifully. Greywacke 2013 by Kevin Judd from NZ if any of you are wine buffs!
Unfortunately we had some absentees.
Ant, Jo, Max, Finn & Jack were absent but not forgotten.
