I have just had 2 days of eating (too much).
The slimming went up the chimney as fast as Father Christmas got down it.
On the 24th – in Brampton – which of course is the Danish Christmas
NOTE the real candles on the tree as well as electric ones.
We had Duck breast with sweet potatoes, stuffing, red cabbage and greens,
with wine followed by Danish Rice Pudding (definitely not for the faint hearted)
served with a lovely red cherry sauce and later coffee while we un-wrapped the presents.
Then on the 25th – off to Clacton on Sea for further indulgency
this time typical English Christmas dinner: Turkey with ham and stuffing
lots of vegetables, baked spuds and parsnips, brussel sprouts & broccoli.
All of this was followed by Christmas pud with Brandy sauce
& my “Risalamande” (more …), coffee and never empty bottles of wine.
