  1. Just waiting for the complaints that it’s remoaner fake news…

    Merry Christmas all, especially Ecks and crew!

  2. Three glasses of good cava, and now switching to a good rioja reserva.

    Not drunk just mildly good humoured.

    7 kilo turkey done to perfection ( even if I say so myself)

    A very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year to all!

  3. It’s too early to start yet, here in Texas, but I have a bottle of Laphroaig and a (hopefully) paasable red named “19 Crimes” for later.

    Merry Christmas, one and all.

  4. Aga still struggling with roast potatoes. H-hour already pushed back from 2pm to 3pm. Now looking more like 5pm. Sandwiches being provisioned for smaller people whilst table football table being assembled. 🙂

    Happy Christmas all!

    Yep, but we started yester eve with a family Chriftmaf Eve dinner. Curried fish and veggies….

    I detest turkey. Today will perhaps be a light lunch followed by dead cow and tubers and a substantial amount of Pommard preceded by some kirs (hint – Vinho Verde makes a good base for these, and cheap, too; and low in alcohol so you can have lots…)

    My eldest son recommends 19 Crimes. Says there are vanillary overtones. Not being a wine drinker myself I have no idea if that is good or bad. Enjoy.

  7. 1: sturgeon caviar. Louis Roederer.
    2: soup, spinach. Potatoes.
    3: scallop. Scampi. Avocado.
    4:. Poulet de bresse. Colourful roast veg. Leek. Truffle. Nebbiolo.
    5: Cohiba maduro 2014. Lagavulin.
    6: lemon pannetone. Custard.
    7: cheese. Jacob’s cornish wafers.

  8. Tripped over the hose reel while topping up the Jacuzzi, hit the house wall with head and one elbow, and the concrete path with knee and other elbow, spent an hour and a half in A&E, ruined a pair of Specs, and haven’t had a drink yet.
    Have been made to watch Home Alone on the TV.
    Christmas? Bah, Humbug.
    Yours
    Ebenezer

  9. We’re watching Home Alone too…

    …and enjoying it.

    Sorry to hear you fell, sounds painful.

    Merry Christmas

    I have no idea what your list means

  10. I have just woken up (half nine at night) after the Xmas dinner-induced coma. It was buffet-style, with ceviche, smoked salmon, sushi, cheese, salami, fillet steak, ribeye and a selection of the most incredible mini puddings including bite-sized lemon meringue pies. Wowzers. I probably don’t need to eat until the 27th. I will, though.

  11. Oh, and last night (this being the Costa Rica way) was turkey, pork, sausage stuffing, veggies and apple pie for pudding. 23rd was enormous half-kilo hunks of steak straight off the barbecue. I have done very well food-wise so far this year.

  12. If we’re regailing culinary delights… mine was very lightly roasted salmon with roast spuds, asparagus stalks, and bits of filler veg followed by large dollops of cream hiding some fruit salad, while watching Dr Who.

  13. @Pcar Bloody hell! What temperature was it in NY? I’ve been frozen to the bone wearing thermals and a heavy duty anorak.

    As BiND says, Portugal is GMT. They tried EU time, didn’t work for humans of all ages. Switched back to GMT and normality returned.

    Seems the old wives tale about wearing a hat is true.
