We had Julie’s parents visiting over Xmas and New Year. Unlike their previous Christmas visit (2009), this year there was no blizzard to contend with!
Xmas morning: time to start drinking!
Xmas morning: and who’s invading my kitchen!
There’s a goose to prepare!
With the goose in the oven, there’s plenty of time for a long walk
Leda joined us for Xmas day
The cook got quite hammered!
The goose is well and truly cooked – very nice
Sandy’s extra-special Xmas pub. Not sure how much booze went into it, but after flaming it, it took an hour and a half to go out!
After the meal, we open the prezzies – that is if Graham can stay awake
Ines joined us for Boxing Day. Time for another walk
Ines instructs Julie in the fine art of making German potato dumplings
They went very well with buffalo stew
Two days of gluttony!
And that Xmas pud is still burning!
