We have just returned from a wonderful family Christmas, 11 of us, foodies all, who have eaten and quaffed our way through some of the most delicious food ever! We make it easy for the host as each "family" is responsible for an element of the feast. This year we were treated to a fish feast on Christmas eve, roast beef on Christmas day and home made raised meat pies for boxing day. Nibbles, puddings and cheeses completed the picture!
It was however sad not to have my Dad with us, but we went and had a Christmas with him just before. He is in a British Legion Nursing Home a couple of hundred miles from here and the price of places to rent over Christmas is so high when you need to sleep 11-13 people it just wasn't a possibility.
Celebrations over - I am now setting to and clearning up my sewing room ready for the challenges of the new year!
All good wishes for 2011.
