Weekend Cooking: Christmas 2010

The Setting - outside under the patio

The starter - There would be a lot of explaining to do if it was anything other than prawn cocktail:

The main course - Three different types of roast meat, plus ham and vegies

It's hard to not be too greedy, even though you know that there is more coming!

Pudding: This is the recipe that I shared for last week's Virtual Advent Tour stop, except made into one big pudding instead of small ones, serve with custard and cream

Santa's helper distributes the gifts. There is a belt for the jacket, but it was thought it was more useful to actually hold the trousers up.

Christmas cake, followed by a swim for the kids

Dinner is sandwiches made from leftovers, except for the boy who has Neapolitan ice cream

And then are still more snacks to come! My favourites are the mini puddings. I bought a few of them home, so can snack on them over the next few days, or tomorrow at least!

Weekend Cooking is hosted by Beth Fish Reads and is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book (novel, nonfiction) reviews, cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, fabulous quotations, photographs.


  1. I'm in love with your table setting -- and of course kind of jealous that you have Christmas outside and then go swimming. Of course, you might be wishing for a white Christmas of Northern Hemisphere song!

    Looks like you ate well and you have a great Santa's helper (glad the pants stayed up!).

    Merry, merry Christmas to you and your family.

  2. That looks lovely, especially the table setting - would you believe we forgot the crackers for ours?

  3. wow, very impressive indeed, and your son looks adorable.
    Merry Xmas Margaret, blessing to you and your family

  4. What a lovely table. Your prawn cocktails look different than what we do here. I'll be right over to compare :)

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

  5. This all looks outstanding! I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!

  6. Looks wonderful! Merry Christmas!
