A fare-ly comprehensive fan-fare to fantastic Christmas fun fare.


North or south, or east or west
Homemade Christmas fare is best –
Appetizer: liver pate
(Didn’t take a shot – oh drat, hey? –
My fruit salad, Christmas cake,
Also failed a pic to take;
Homemade gravy on that list,
Cranb’rry jelly also missed); Asparagus shootsStarter of asparagus
Should have been sufficient fuss,Prawns cookingBut we also went with prawns –Asparagus and prawn starters servedNobody such starter scorns!
Then, conventional – not quirky –Turkey carved into convenient slices.We tucked into roasted turkey,
And, a well-constructed stuffingHomemade stuffingTurkey’s chest with pride was puffing;
Crisp roast potatoesRoast potatoes, crispy crust,
With the turkey was a must;Brussels sprouts, bacon and macademia nutsBrussels sprouts with bacon, nuts;Gammon ham with apple jelly, cocktail sausagesSausage, gammon ham abuts;Cauliflower au gratinDone au gratin, cauliflower
Finished off the veggie-power,
And, for those with space left over,Pavlova dessertCame this great homemade Pavlova;
Tasted good as all this looks –
Compliments to all three cooks!

  4. what a delicious looking feast. I must sit down and list what all ours consisted of before I forget. Something to do with oysters, and paté, escargots, smoked trout, roast chicken, and….of course a different wine with each course and, oh yes, champagne with dessert. It’s all coming back to me now!
