What Did You Eat?
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?
