What I ate on Christmas day !!!

On Christmas Day
I got up late
Ate too much
Drank lovely wine
Opened my presents
Fell asleep in front of the television

A wonderfully quiet and life enhancing day!

There was Christmas pudding too (from Fortnum and Mason no less!) - but I forgot to take a picture!

A block of foie gras to begin

Dressed crab with smoked salmon

Meanwhile waiting to be cooked

Sauternes for the foie gras - Chateauneuf-du-Pape for my steak (and the rest of the day!!!).

Whilst all this was happening my gratin dauphinoise had been cooking

Voila! peppered rump steak with green beans, mushrooms and garlic cooked in olive oil and red wine and gratin dauphinoise. A great meal for one!

Christmas cake - from Popina - undoubtedly the best Christmas cake I have ever, ever, tasted!

Of course Christmas is for the animals too - here are the birds Christmas presents

And here is the present for any passing dogs or possibly Mr fox even!

And here is my house-mate looking lovely and ready to go off to see friends in South London! South of the river on Christmas day - help!

I'm glad you had a good day.... had you lived here the fair would not have been so exotic!

Your Raw steak and beans picture is really nice! It looks so alive, ready to run away in the garden and have some horn at the fox who got scared and didn't eat his diner till a couple of days later.

Note: the top was buttoned up when arriving in South London, of course.

Lovely christmas time.
