Christmas is here!! After weeks of travelling to visiting it is now time to begin cooking solid for three days! YAY!
Today I am going for a long run around the resevoir since it is a beautiful and lovely +6 degrees outside. Later today we are going to a friend’s house for some holiday cheer. My contribution to the meal is dessert, Banoffee Pie. I have made this dessert a few times and it ALWAYS wins because really what isn’t delicious with that much whipped cream, sugar and more sugar.
Tomorrow Dani is working so I am going to BBQ a turkey to take to the staff at the hospital. I am nervous about BBQing the turkey because I have never done that. Cooking a turkey is usually intimidating enough but my dad’s turkey always turns out perfect so I am going to try.
Boxing day is when Dani and I will exchange gifts and I am making a special meal. That day I am making Coq Au Vin and Angelfood cake. Clearly, reading the recipe for Coq Au Vin from Julia Child it is impossible to make this taste bad. I think Julia Child has it right, a bottle of win, some cognac, butter and bacon makes up the “sauce” for the chicken. Really with that, cardboard would taste delicious. (Photos to follow)
