Christmas has come, and gone. How was yours? We had a fantastic day. Lots of food, wine, chocolate, crisps and lots of tv. I feel as stuffed as the turkey today.
As much as I love to cook, I never cook on Christmas Day, as this is traditionally my sister’s domain, now my sister and brother-in-law. They are both fantastic cooks, and it’s always gorgeous. We went retro this year, and had prawn cocktail to start, followed by potato and thyme soup, then the traditional turkey & ham with all the trimmings washed down with a lovely albarino. This was followed by sherry trifle, many hours later as everyone was just too full.
Today is St Stephen’s Day, a very big day in the social calendar as in Ireland, as Christmas Day is a “black day” and nowhere is open, especially pubs. It is illegal for them to open, although, sometimes if you know the right people, you might get a drink in one after the Christmas swim.
So, no recipe today, just some photos, but I’ll have one for you soon. Enjoy the rest of your Christmas!
