Where were you George?

I have just learnt that George Michael has just bought a $6 Million dollar home at Whale beach, on my old street of Whale Beach Road. We must have just missed him when he was house hunting, damn! I would have negotiated a little off the $6M, I'm reasonable!

...where were you George? We could have been neighbours and had coffee....

Grinch-mas Ho ho hO

I don't think I can get out of my seat I'm so full. I don't think I will ever get out of this seat again, infact. Who knew the pudding recipe was for 6-8 people until it was too late! I must learn to read the suggested number of people the quantity is for.

So this is how the day went...

Roast Pork with crispy crackling & roasted vegies in garlic, rosemary and thyme. Roasted Green apples make the best apple sauce.

The Pavlova came out fabulous for my first ever attempt ! A great crusty outer and quite tall for a nice slice.

Here you can see the height..mmmmm

Lashings of whipped cream and fresh fruit.

Then came the traditional Christmas Pudding.
 This was a 4 hour boil process in calico cloth.

It takes a long time, but boy this is so worth the wait for the ultimate taste.

Brandy Custard topping.
 Chef's for this day are: (and free loaders also pictured)

Left: Santas reindeer helper and (Right) the Little Brown Bear

Of course there is the Tree...

and the Nutcracker....if you're naughty lol


Peace on Earth......:)
