Christmas Day Banquet!

Xmas dinner was beautiful! For starters we had a delicious prawn cocktail with bread fingers. Doris, that’s Trev’s mum, had a lentil soup. She has a strict eating timetable, which has to be met – so she was keen to be fed, god love her!

The main meal was simply beautiful. The taste from the meat was like nothing I had tasted before. We had a Marks & Spencer three bird roast which was stuffed with a beautiful fruit stuffing, for me it was moreish! I believe the stuffing was a mix of pork, cranberry, morello cherry and apricot stuffing. The carrots were seasoned to perfection, and mmmmmmm the honey and mustard roast parsnips were gorgeous. The sprouts must of been from the organic breed, because they were huge, and so very tasty! The roast potatoes were golden brown, crispy, yet, light and fluffy in the centre. We also had red cabbage with onion, it was so tasty. Also, we had pork crackling – it was gorgeous, but not suitable for Doris’ falsies. Oh, and the separate stuffing which was served was unreal! I believe it was M&S pork stuffing, you have got to try it – UNREAL! I of course, polished off everything – it was the best Xmas dinner I have ever tasted!

Of course, the drinks were constantly flowing and I just couldn’t resist trying out the Sherry with lemonade (which is Doris’ favourite!). Needless to say, I was quite drunk before we even got around to tucking in to our Marks and Spencer Snow Bomb dessert. The cake was beautiful, it had delicious shavings of white chocolate on the outer layer and inside their was a light and fluffy sponge centre which had layers of fruit jam – it was sooo good!
