Happy Christmas

Will update later xx
We managed to drag out lunch French style – all afternoon. I will add the photos tomorrow – one day late.
Amuse bouche 12h00 - Smoked salmon, cucumber, tomato and gougéres
Starter 1 pm – the last bit of smoked salmon, avocado and a small steak tartare.
Main course 2 pm –  A large Turkey leg and thigh which I deboned and stuffed, gosh how much easier to carve! Brussels sprouts, roasted baby butternut, pattypan, carrot, parsnip, and potatoes with yummy gravy.
Cheese course 3 pm - Cantal, Comte, Bleu d'Auvergne and camembert,
Dessert was planned for 4 pm but we both had a snooze, so it became 5pm :-)  It was cognac-drowned Christmas cake with marzipan and cream.
All washing up done between each course so no pile up of dishes etc.
All in all, it was a good day that ran very smoothly.
I hope you all had a good day and those of you that have a holiday tomorrow enjoy, it is not a holiday here!  All the very best, cheers.
