BBQ Santa

Aaah, work has shut down at last, schools have broken up for 6 weeks' holiday, all the presents have been bought and wrapped, so it's time for rest and relaxation. We'll be having a BBQ, and salads and summer fruit for our Christmas dinner. I might make an amaretto trifle too, I think. A project to contemplate today.
(Trifle - dessert consisting of layers of alcohol soaked cake, fresh fruit like peaches and strawberries, jelly (ok, jello for some!), custard and cream)


  1. First of all, I'd rather like to meet this friendly barbequeing Santa Claus. Looks can be deceiving, but he certainly appears to be the sort of guy who'd be great fun at a party!

    Secondly, thank you for defining all your local terms! Too often, when I try to read people's writings, I stare at a word for 5 minutes trying to figure out what it means, and I wonder if I'm just dumb for not knowing the word. Thank you for not making me feel dumb!

    (This also applies to your bubbie/hubbie/subbie post. :) )

  2. le bbq n'est pas mon repas de noel prefere ;o)

    the bbq is not my meal of Christmas prefers; O)

  3. Ahhh... I'd like one of those...

    In our tradition, there is no meat at Christmas eave dinner, but 8 vegetarian dishes, which should include home made bread, beans, rice, honey, vegetables, fruits, an assortment of nuts etc. And, is turkey for Christmas day lunch!

  4. I love trifle but I haven't had one in a long time...your making me hungry :)
    Merry Christmas
