I hope that everyone has a smashing Christmas, roasting in the Australian sun while pretending that it's really snowing. I'll be suffering through cooking a turkey in 30 degree heat with the air-conditioning on high. Such is life in the Antipodes, I suppose.
I am having a compromise Christmas lunch, with salmon fillets instead of baked meats. Spiced sponge cake to follow.
Enjoy your turkey - it is very nice meat and excellent leftovers (I like left overs).
Seafood will be on the menu here also.
Merry Christmas to all Australian Library Thingers hopefully you all get that book you are after off Santa.Enjoy the season and some holiday reading.
Merry Xmas to everyone from the wookiebender household too!
Xmas lunch will be cold turkey, ham, lebanese nibblies (my brother-in-law's family is Lebanese and they all bring something delicious), oysters, champagne, and I just bought a small handful of "premium" cherries for $10 for nibbling tonight while wrapping presents. I hope the kids don't mind their Xmas presents covered with cherry juice stains. :)
We'll be savouring some prawns and oysters, before the salads and cold meats (chicken, ham, pork, terrines, etc), but of course, the one concession we have to make to the English forebears is the hot plum duff afterwards! Yum!
Wishing everyone a very happy Christmas.
Merry Christmas to all of you Aussies from a snowy and frozen NY.
We are going to have goose here, with potatoes sage and lemon stuffing, roast fingerling potatoes and, to end it all, pecan pie and champagne.
I confess that I wish I were downunder, though. A Christmas on the beach would be strange (never had one) but lovely!
Don't get sunburnt!
Best wishes to all - Whatever you celebrate at this time of year, and wherever you are, may you enjoy the day.
aluvalibri: I'd swap with you if I could! Not necessarily NY, but somewhere cold, although it's actually quite cool and misty here in the Blue Mountains (Central Tablelands, NSW) this morning - lovely!
I've only ever spent one Christmas Day at the beach, and believe me it's not all it's cracked up to be.... but that's another story.
Thrin, I did not get to see the Blue Mountains when I came to Oz....darn! Next time.......
Merry Christmas and best wishes for the festive season no matter how or what you may be celebrating.
#7 Yes, it did start out very overcast yesterday but it was quite warm and sunny by the time we sat down to prawns, ham, mangoes and salad. I was so pleased too that my first attempt at Sangria was very successful and added to the great atmosphere. Glad I didn't have to drive anywhere though.....it's potent stuff !!!
