I absolutely positively love hearing about food. The last post yielded some good material, notably from Mark who gave the complete 411, plus a funny anecdote. Thanks Mark!
"We helped ourselves to all this yummy food:
from a selection of:
smoked salmon; prawns; avocado; turkey etc. all washed down with a choice from beer, cider, soft drink.
Roast pork, with crackling; turkey;
peas, carrots, green beans, roast potatoes; roast turnip; and Ian's famous gravy (well, the gravy wasn't famous - but it is now). There was a selection of lovely wines too: a merlot, a chardonnay, and a cabernet sauvignon (i think i spelled it right).
trifle; apple crumble; chocolate ripple cake(made with chocolate ripple cookies); fruit and cheeses.
Lunch was taken at a leisurely pace over about three hours.
After lunch we helped to clear up and then watched some British comedy on cable tv and opened our Kris Kringle presents.
The hosts' eight year old girl child was asked by someone who shall remain anonymous to read one joke per day to her dad from all the xmas cracker jokes that she collected. Her dad was to pretend that it was the first time he'd heard them."
Our own dear Megan mentioned that she was "stuffed full of tri-tip and double-baked and strawberry salad and pumpkin pie." Intriguing. Any more details?
Over at Bob's, there's a luscious pic and recipe. And at Gig's place there's mention of a sumptuous Christmas breakfast.
I ate home-made thin crispy-brown latkes and little lamb sausages at my friend's house for Chanukah, along with super sour Kosher dills, and a huge fresh green salad with vinagrette and thick slices of watermelon radish. Let's not forget the free-flowing ice cold white wine. Yum!
Update: Karen, we can't leave you out! You have an incredible description of your festive meal, you food writer you! Find it here!
So anyone else got some food details for us?

As a result of all these holiday parties, some of us are experiencing a major sugar high. Put down the candy canes! Do not stick another cookie in your mouth! Drop those chocolates right now! There's a line at the bathroom that is going out the door here at the Wild Onion. No one can order anything off the menu because they can't see anymore! And there's a bunch of zombified people wandering around aimlessly.
We need to stop eating so much sugar! We need help! We need some broccoli!
Who can save us? We need a vegetarian! SUZANNE!!!

Everybody pick out your favorite tunes, remember
there is no charge here at the Onion
Bob has been busy stocking the Bar
How about some really Ice Cold Beer!!
How about some Wine?
I ordered this for "you know who"
Megan knows how to put on a wonderful buffet,
anywhere that we would like it to go, just
put your reservation in early, I am sure
it will be very popular.
Hope everyone has a GREAT TIME!!
Let's get this PARTY STARTED!!
Hey Bob, I spruced up the Bar for you,
Thanks for taking such good care of us!

This guy looks like he wishes he was an elf.
Looks like he is experiencing some real pain. Somebody, get him a fruitcake, quick!
Is that a Coors Light in his hand? Bad beer. Bad sweater.
These people have the right idea. Close your eyes and no one will notice your sweaters.
This woman needs a room all to herself. Preferably, one that is padded.
I would not eat that hamburger. Would you?
Happy Holidays, ya'll!!!

As that special time of year approaches, our lives get even more out of control with the added stress of holiday shopping. But here at The Wild Onion, we ask that you check the stress at the door and shoot down a few "holiday spirits" with some old friends. That is why I propose this Holiday Tour of Lights. I encourage each of you to post your own pictures of holiday light displays, or even attach them to this one. Either way, let's attempt to spread a few good tidings and joy around.
Our Christmas Tree
From Leah, some Chanukah Lights:
Some More Lights From Cece's Neighborhood
Frosty is the kids all time favorite
This one is my humble abode.
The house directly across from mine. I am not a big fan of the white lights. Come one peeps, add a little color and spice up life a bit.
