Boxing Day 40: The Buffetning

This is it Subverts, this is the BIG one!

40 years of xmas buffets for me. Breaking new ground this year with pickled garlic and home made vodka.

What's your 2016 best of xmas buffet?

Christmas cake with icing and fruit

soup made from the stock of yesterday's bird

My mother is the oldest sister of 8 other siblings, so she has spent a lifetime of cooking and cleaning up after her 8 siblings, their families, and 3 generations of family grandchildren etc, during holiday meals and gatherings held at my grandparents' house. My grandfather passed away just over 2 years ago now, so the family holiday gathering dynamic has changed quite a bit in that short amount of time, as all holiday meals & family gatherings were based upon when my grandfather wanted to eat lol, He RULED EVERYTHING!! Thus, my mother is now 65 years old, and is COMPLETELY over traditional turkey dinners, there is nothing inspiring in that concept for her anymore lol.

I'm thankful, because Christmas dinner in recent years is going out for Korean food, or Japanese food, which we did this past weekend. Its GREAT!! Refreshing, different.. and simple.

Turkey dinners are out... sorry. Smile I still have some turkey dinner in the fridge from a Xmas party this past Friday that my friend got for me tho. We shall see.

Korean food. Yes please!

It was great, but kind of glad it's over now.

Mince pies. And cheese/biscuits. Definitely in the 'why don't I eat this all year?' category. 

I have a very fine selection of chuxxneys this year, a delightful beetroot and red onion relish. Hyuummmmnnbb
