View Full Version : Christmas Dinner

25th December 2016, 05:01 AM
The digital timer clipped to my t-shirt was to remind me when things were cooked.
The roast pork required more time than the vegetables, etc.

Tina, my daughter made the trifle, I fixed dinner, and grand daughter Roxy rocked up on her scooter!

What a feast, hope you weren't too knackered to enjoy eating it! Happy Christmas, mine is just about to start....

No need to wish you a good day - you look as if you all have had one.

Good to see you are drinking Penfolds and not a South American offering.
We do not appear to get the Penfolds Club Wine in the UK, were does it sit in the wine hierarchy?

Andrew - I was up at 6:00am putting it together for noon when the family arrived. They left around 3pm when I just collapsed in my recliner for a nap!

Amanda - Happy Xmas *chr

David - Hope you're enjoying yours as much as I did mine, Merry Xmas!

Derek - Penfolds is actually no better than Keeper's Glove at less than half the price, but enjoyed it nonetheless.
I trust you are also enjoying a nice vintage of sorts *chr

Yes indeed a nice Merlot from Chile.

Mine's ready in a mo'. I can hear he electric carving knife...

25th December 2016, 11:12 PM
Derek, Mark - UK time is 11:00pm, I daresay you are both feeling very contented after your yuletide fare and ready for a Silent night, if not indeed a Holy one. O:)

Mark, I doubt that an electric carving knife would have made an impression on my pork crackle, tougher than turtle shell. Even the dog found it challenging.

I'm about to collapse here after a late feast and washing up!

My lot left me with the washing up. The one item left off my Xmas shopping list was washing up liquid. The little I had left wasn't enough to cut the pork fat off all the utensils. Stores reopen tomorrow after which all will need rewashing. Xmas is such fun, isn't it!

Cheeky sods!

Andrew - My mob are an eat and run lot over whom daddy no longer wields dominion - my role has changed to chief cook and bottle washer, the balance of power has shifted! *shrug

Sit in the corner, mumble incoherently, occasionally shout something obscene like Father Jack, and they'll soon leave you to your bottle of malt.

Father Ted, Father Jack and Dougal, what an irreverent lot!
The series vanished from our screens years ago (by Papal decree I think!) :D

I shall remember your good advice. *chr
