Happy Christmas and best wishes for new year!

A little late, had a last minute Christmas dinner to prepare yesterday as I didn't make it back home down in Limerick. We had back-up bought the day before, was disappointed I didn't make it back down, but spent Christmas with my family here in Dublin was an awesome alternative. Although I got to try out my cooking skills (not much of one, but luck things turn out every time). So I made:-

  • Roast leg of lamb
  • Roast stuffed roll of pork
  • Stuffing balls (sausage meat, fresh chestnuts all the the way from Italy, breadcrumbs, seasoning)
  • Roast potatoes ❅
  • Mash potatoes ❅
  • Red cabbage ❅
  • Sides: green beans and carrots
  • Gravy from chicken stock, juices of roast lamb, red cabbage

❅ My hubby helped with these, time was ticking and beeping at me, so an extra helper is nice to have.

Yep, all that for 3 persons!

I wonder what other Chinese families had for their Christmas meals, traditional Chinese or Western style dinner?

Anyhoo, hope you had a Happy Christmas, wishing you a happy, healthy and prosperous new year. Enjoy the rest of your holidays!
