What a fabulous Christmas we had----I can honestly say that I don't ever remember having such a wonderful Christmas day as the one we had this year.
Ebony stayed over on Christmas eve because the three of us went to the evening church service at 10 pm.
I had done a lot of the meal preparations on Saturday and I am so glad that I did--it made things so much easier on Christmas day.
We started out with prawn cocktails-yummo.
We always have the traditional Christmas lunch (without the turkey that is).
We had ham and roast lamb plus roasted potatoes-sweet potatoes-carrots and parsnips and pumpkin and then we had peas and broad beans and lastly there was cauliflower augratin.
I had made the mint sauce myself this year seeing as I have mint growing in the garden plus there was gravy as well.
I had also made a beautiful punch (a new thing for us this year) and it went down a treat.
My Christmas pudding was amazing which was a good thing after what happened when I was cooking it--(so I forgave it for scalding me when I was removing it from the water after it was cooked.)
I had brandy cream and normal cream as well.
Needless to say we were all a wee bit full after eating all that and my family all appreciated the effort that I had put in.
I love it when we all get together which usually only happens at Christmas time and everyone enjoyed each others company which was a bonus.
Oh happy days.
