We had the most brilliant dinner last night – the usual with all the trimmings. This morning is a leisurely one. All we’ve done so far is make coffee and get the stock started, using up the left over julienned vegetables for last night’s red pepper pate dish and the carcasses of two chickens. (I don’t really like turkey, so we always roast chickens. And it works out quite well because there are more drumsticks!)
And today, we get to have another of my favourites! Chicken sandwiches with dressing, cranberry sauce, fresh parsley and potato chips. Ooooh, too bad we don’t have any of Mom’s left over salad in a simple vinaigrette to put into my sandwich. There is nothing more wonderful! (I’ve never understood why people make “ewww” noises as I put the salad into my sandwich. I mean really, have they tried it?? Hmmm??? It’s fantastic!!)
Merry Christmas to all! Hope yours has been and will continue as brightly as ours.
