I don't know why. Most likely none of us do.
Since leaving home, we've been trying to establish our own traditions - needless to say, we're not really there yet.
Its pretty important for the Christmas Eve meal to be quick and easy to prepare - there are always far too many other things to do, I think it shouldn't be TOO extreme - after all, the following day, you have to eat enough to sink a small battleship, and it should definitely involve bubbles - I'm pretty sure that's a given.
Not sure we hit it off exactly tonight, but it was good all the same. And the wrapping is all done.
So - lobster and chips. And aioli. All washed down with a 2002 Pol Roger rose.
Now our stockings are hung and we'd better go to sleep.
Don't want to anger Father Christmas...
Merry Christmas, everyone!
