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:
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
General Tsao's Chicken
Chicken Fried Rice
Good Lord, we're full.
Leftovers for a while
