it’s the usual setup for us at Christmas. just me and al. was at the Borough market at 9am on the 24th to beat the crowds, disappointed to not find any of our favourite Christmas cake. Came home with these
on the phone to the family while lunching. baking cookies in the afternoon. wholemeal bread, cheese, jabugo and chai tea for snacks/late lunch for al. tossed the rice in herbed oil, garlic, onions, tomatoes, shrimps and chicken broth before putting in the rice cooker. boiled the lobster for dinner. poor lobster was stretching his claws so he doesn’t fit into the pan. but he was already weak after spending some time in the freezer (to numb him) so in the pot he goes after some struggle.
leftover seafood rice, roast pork (skin did not turn out crackling hmmp), beans and carrots, and mulled wine for Christmas day lunch.
