|Trying to recreate our old Christmas tree but it was the camera angle that was dodgy.|
|The infamous homemade Eggnog not as good as the bought stuff.|
11:40am Xmas eve started with egg nogg recipe, never attempted before so like blind leading blind!!! Mark is doing a great job of separating the eggs.....
Next up home made stuffing made by Cheryl, tastes lovely!!!! I've added walnuts and apricots.
Been up to visit Carol Auntie (this started at the wedding apparently!) and Uncle Dave, then to the pub to meet dan, Gaz and hayley. Was lovely to have a good catch up with everyone.
7:40pm next up vegetables!!! Just had a 4 person conflab about carrots!!! Have chucked the in laws out so mark can get on with the chopping!!!
7:50pm just checked the egg nog; Mark's review of it 'it's very eggy' hahaha really?!
Chief tester Norma's (my Mum)opinion: 'more brandy!!!'
Not sure what I make of it have never had tasted proper nog (local saying down in the shires) before I've no idea whether the semolina type consistency is right or not.....
On the plus side the stuffing tastes great and mark still has all his fingers; chopping after a few pints isn't recommended......
Something past 8pm (not sure which time, had a few drinks) just watched mark prep the turkey, his face on the picture says it all haha funny bless him he did really well considering how squeamish he is! Everything is all prep-ed and ready to roll for tomorrow. Off to ring Mummy, Daddy and Louise Burton before settling down to tipsly watch the grinch.....
By the way I've just read this back and realised how many !!! I use tee hee.
|Stuffing the Turkey was not a good experience|
|Great Result on Christmas Day at the Hoddell household.|
Until the next time.
Peace, Love and Bananas xxx
