Glazed the ham. Bloody tasty ham. Not too salty and the glaze worked a treat (thanks to M’s mums recipe). Would definitely buy ham from this butcher again.
Christmas Eve with my family. Chris made mayo again which we had with prawn crostini. Then cold ham and potato salad (dill and mayo), with a green salad. Finished off with Dad’s pavlova. He makes a mean pav, topped with whipped cream and strawberries.
Christmas day morning at M’s. Chris and I cooked brekkie. Pan fried the ham (delicious), scrambled eggs, toast, mango and cherries with pancakes and maple syrup. Hmmmmmm! Joe created a new drink called Scrambled Apple Juice, though he was reluctant to drink it.
At Chris’ sisters a mixture of cold ham, turkey and roast lamb (divine, marinated for three days!!). The best way to eat lamb is cold. Crayfish salad, green salad, potato and egg salad. Chris’ sister made sushi, tasty. Topped off with ice cream, pudding and/or mango sorbet. Stuffed to the gills.
Chris and I made his nieces dolls for Christmas (finished at 4pm Christmas day!). They appeared to like them and we managed to get a shot of Sophie holding her dolly. They’re perfect small person size and can be held in one hand (very important when you’re being chased by Uncle Chris). Previously Chris had taught his nieces the dead blowie (or dead blow fly). You lay on your back and shake your hands and legs in the hair whilst making a buzzing noise. As you can see from the pics they were quite keen last night to give it another go. Hilarious!
