Christmas dinner by boxplayer

Christmas dinner

Chestnut and parsnip wellington. We made this last year but I cocked up the prep a bit so, though tasty, the presentation wasn't as good as it could be. I did better this year.

A bit of a lie-in - then the usual Christmas Day schedule. Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs breakfast with prosecco. Present opening with more prosecco and chocolates - lots of nice things - ivy earrings, 2 bottles of gin, perfume and more.

This went on a bit and we didn't start preparing dinner until gone 2, stopping for the Queen at 3. Was a touch fraught getting everything together - the wellington, roast potatoes, mashed swede and carrots, sprouts and broccoli.

Got a little armadillo in my cracker from Dave. Had a break after dinner and we watched The Queen and I which I'd recorded. Got ourselves stuck into the trifle before watching the Upstart Crow Christmas special. Mum got stuck into Eastenders after that and we retired early.
