Christmas dinner

After much backing and forthing as to venue, the family meal was here at the condo. Beelzebub is not to be trusted with anything as important as the holiday bird, so Mum took care of it (along with gravy and stuffing), tinned cranberry jelly along with my favourite corn fritters. I provided the rest. Three hours of merry-making between six of us....the menu:

Roast Turkey
Corn fritters
Garlicky mash
Maple-glazed, Roasted Carrots and Parsnips spiced with cinnamon and cumin
Brussel sprouts with sausage
Little Penguin Chardonnay-Riesling
Egg nog with brandy
Chocolate Fruit cake, soused in Kalhua

Yes, some of us were a bit glooshy afterwards.

Supper was the traditional Chinese takeaway with the exbf...this year's installment included

Shrimp rolls
General Tsao's Chicken
Shanghai Noodles
Chicken Fried Rice
MooShoo Veggies

Good Lord, we're full.

Leftovers for a while
