Mercoledì.

What will we have for Christmas lunch?
I've been struggling with this question for a little while.
Well, it's a busy day. I have to make sure that lunch is basically planned for about nine people, then I need to scoot over and pick up Aunty from way across town.
I experimented with a chicken dish last night, but it wasn't very nice - too dry.
I've done curries to death a bit.
I need a bit of an overall hang the food together theme.
A Mediterranean (Italian) theme might be the best way to go.
That would really suit our outside surroundings.

A typical Nuova Lazio outside eating area.



This is made with beef, but a chicken lasagna would be a 
good idea - for some reason the two vegetarians who will
be here eat chicken. I didn't know that chicken was a plant.
Last year my daughter made some amazing authentic Italian pizzas (also vegetarian). So, there we go - Chicken lasagna and home made authentic pizza. Add in a couple of Mediterranean style salads and some foccacia bread and Bob's your uncle!

Bob's your uncle!

What about roast lamb, roast poultry, roasted vegetables, green vegetables, gravy followed by pavlova, trifle, Christmas pudding, fruit salad and Christmas pies?

What's wrong with that then?

THE CURMUDGEON ha detto...

Surely with that theme 'Bob's your uncle ' should read as 'Roberto is your uncle'

yep that's christmas dinner though sue prefers roast pork which i think her sister marie over by richard's is cooking for us this year as our oven is unreliable!

Shouldn't you boys be doing something useful?

THE CURMUDGEON ha detto...

What?
You mean having a lie-in, drinking tea and reading on my iPad isn't useful?

Richard (of RBB) ha detto...

Aren't you supposed to be going to Napier?

Remember that computer program in the eigthies or ninetees which was supposed to be intelligent?
"Why did you say that?"
"How do you feel about that?"
"Are you feeling good?"
