Crackers... Christmas All Over Again...

Well as I told you on Thursday, one of my dearest friends Tanya came to stay with her children for a long weekend.
We've all had such a laugh even the kids.
Now Tanya was supposed to come up for Mick's 40th Birthday, but Ayden caught Swine Flu so they couldn't.
Then I ended up in Hospital.
Then they were supposed to come at Christmas, but Tanya's car broke down so again a no show.
So you can imagine the relief for all of us, when they made it this weekend.
I'd saved a tin of Quality Street and other assorted sweets for them all and we recreated Christmas Dinner. (Look Mags told you we had Prawn Cocktail LOL). Well everyone except Ayden who had Pate, he doesn't like Prawns. Turkey Crown, Gammon, Roast Potatoes, Roast Parsnips, Peas, Carrots, Broccoli, Pigs in Blankets, Stuffing, Yorkshire Puddings and lovely thick gravy. We even wore our paper hats after pulling the crackers.
And if your wondering after all that baking I did, well there is not a crumb left in the house...

What a wonderful plate of food you have there! You are making me very hungry!!!
I love peas and carrots. My grandmother (from Wales) made them every single Sunday along with her mashed potatoes and gravy, roast and mint jelly. Did you have that too? :D

Well you know i love cakes, can't get enough of them, and would have helped to demolish them all for you.
I also love roast dinner and want to eat that one on here... looks yum.

I am pleased you finally made it all together...and how much fun to o Christmas all again.

The roast dinner looks divine...and some Americans say English food is boring....pfffttt.

I love mint sauce but it is hard to get here...mint jelly is easier but it looks, and tastes, like hair gel to me :-)

HOW ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!! Richard and I sat this morning viewing your 'Holiday Feast' and I must admit.. each of us drooled just a bit..well... a lot!!!
It is one of those times when we wish the powers of clicking ones heels to make you magically appear elsewhere were a reality...then you would surely see us *pop* up at your lovely table...there to enjoy good food and good times with friends....

Thanks for sharing

Hugs,
Jodi and Richard
