Your post put a smile on my face. Sounds like a fantastic time. Please raise a glass for me,
Seasons best wishes,
Sounds amazing, have a great time.
Jeez mate, sounds a bit rich.
Don't even know what half the stuff is. What is a Capon?
It will be a nice cool 32C tomorrow so I won't be having anything hot. To be honest, it is just me and and the dog and neither of us can be buggered cooking.
So we are having Prawns to start with, big buggers! In vinegar, not that vinaigrette stuff and bugger the chives. They are consumed with a beer mate! Oh and with cucumber. I don't know the fancy words for it.
Next we will consume cheese, from a cow mate. You can have the goats (we shoot them) and the Sheep (We shear them) we don't bloody milk the buggers, and copious amounts of ham. I will have a salad with that. After that, some turkey, roast beef and chicken.
I am not totally uncouth. I have a nice bottle of Sacred Hill Shiraz Cabernet, 2010. 1966? What, don't you drink mate. Shouldn't still have it. You should have drunk it all years ago. (oldest bottle of wine I have is 1983)
Then some more ham with water melon. Perhaps some rock melon to go with it.
For dessert I have some ice creams, the ones covered in thick chocolate, on sticks.
Bugger, none left, the kids ate them all today. Oh well, I'll have a ginger beer spider or three.
Well, that's what I'm haven.
Merry Christmas Rodinus, seasons greetings to your loved ones.

What time should we be there? Mind if I bring a few friends? My drunk uncle is here and he's driving us all nuts.
Would you like us to bring anything? Some cheesy poofs perhaps? I hear they go great with Château St Georges. Spam sammiches maybe?
I can't wait! See you soon.edit on 12/24/2013 by Neysa because: (no reason given)

So, kicking it old school continental style then eh Rodinus? I can appreciate that!
This years spread will surely include several staples of British Christmas celebration. A bloody great turkey, rammed full of seasoned stuffing, a slab of pork (which mother cooked last night, and let me tell you, if it was possible to drown in ones own saliva, I would have done it last night), a lump of beef, a crap load of assorted vegetables, oven roast potatoes, plus several sweeter treats for afters (which I ignore, because I am a savoury fiend), and that is before we even get to the booze. I fully intend to consume a bottle or two of rum, since I dislike wine, and cannot find a decent port around here worth a crap.
I am probably going to be my normal disgraceful self this year, and literally bury my face in the plate like a god damned animal! I do not care. My attitude is, I am a celt, and when we celebrate, it always gets messy
Joyeaux Noel, Rodinus.
Have a great time, certainly sounds like you will!!

I love lamb! (the wife marinates it in coffee)
Sounds like an awesome feast!
That sounds like a lovely, albiet too rich feast for me, and I enjoyed reading about how your family spends the holidays.
I once made a capon feast but it seems we here in Canada are programmed for turkey, so it wasn't ooooo'd and awwww'd.
Have a wonderful holiday.
