We spent Christmas at the Martin's home this year.  We went caroling Christmas Eve and had a great Mexican style dinner.  Of course we pulled crackers and wore the silly hats, told the daft jokes and played the naffy games. We spent the night at Emily's comfortable new apartment - we had our own b/r.

We got up Christmas morning and quickly hightailed it to P'ville to watch the kids open their presents. We had eggs Benedict with 2 bottles of fizz and ate my world famous pie-lets.  Later in the day we had our Christmas dinner.
It was spectacular.  Jenn did a leg of lamb on the rotisserie and we also had smoked Greenberg turkey.  Nigella Lawson's recipe helped Jenn make the most scrumptious roasted potatoes I've ever had.  (secret ingredient was goose fat)
Poor old Anth was off-color and we all wished him well over and over as we drank the Cameron Hughes Lot 200 Cabernet that Nana and I provided.

It was a great Christmas! Such good food all around. By the way, my friend here in Paris LOVED your mince meat pies.
