Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories 2010 - December 2 - Holiday Foods
|Christmas Pudding (made by Geniaus) - 1984|
|Preparing the Christmas poultry - 2003|
Other traditional goodies that grace our table over the Christmas break include dark fruit cake, shortbread made to an old family recipe, rum balls and fruit trifle. Locally grown strawberries and homegrown stone fruits togehter with cherries and mangoes provide a healthy element to our menu. We usually reserve glazed ham to have with yummy salads for Boxing Day lunch.
Now that our home is air-conditioned the discomfort has been somewhat alleviated. Cooking the meat outside in the Webber and BBQ has also relieved the strain on our domestic oven.
|Roast Christmas Lunch - 1995|
|Pass the gravy and cranberry sauce - 2007|
