Merry Christmas!!

Illustration by Hong Yi of our family this Christmas but she has grossly underestimated Wey's weight & size. And her own age.

Tonight's bird was 6.4 kg. I forgot to take it from my friend's shop last night so I had to thaw it in water this morning and dinner was late at 8.30 pm.

Christmas Eve dinner. The cranberry sauce with orange zest and walnuts was very refreshing and yummy. Thanks for recipe David, and thanks to J for the asparagus (blanched and drizzled with lemon juice and butter) hand-carried from Oz. On the side was chestnuts stuffing, a lettuce-pear-walnuts salad and caramelized pumpkin and sweet potato, spiked with some cinnamon, sugar and butter.

Christmas is about love, God's love for us and our love for Him and all men! "For God so loved the world He gave his only begotton son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16

Merry Christmas Everyone! Have a nice holiday and play nice!

p.s. for those who want to go to church on Christmas Day, come to the Grand Ballroom at Magellan Sutera Hotel at 10 am. The Christmas celebration will be grand, with dance and carols and even a full lunch buffet, all free! Every cool person in town will be there (me too), so see you all!

terri, it all looks wonderful, so glad you had a good time. another great picture, too.

i am getting ready to board my flight from NY to BKK, i wonder if we will have turkey for a choice of meals? if not, i have a hebrew national kosher all beef salami sandwich on seeded rye. no stuffing or gravy though ... (sigh)

i have so much food in my luggage i was 10+ kg. over weight, luckily it is christmas and the check-in attendant let me pass without the extra charges. i have a surprise in my bag that i will mail to you when i get back to thailand. YES, its food!
