A moment of relative calm before the family arrive to share Xmas with us. Available goodies for the table are always at their lowest point at this time of year but we have stored some - beetroot, onions, shallots, broad beans & sweet peppers. Still in the beds are parsnips, red cabbage, leeks & swede.

I hope, despite recent traumatic events, that all forum members, new friends made in Castres and old friends alike have a lovely Xmas & a peaceful & healthy 2024.

We’ve a stuffed capon for lunch this Saturday. A few friends are coming over and a tasty long lunch interspersed with laughter, good humour and friendships renewed.

Hope the capon went well Steve. I am having a tutorial from Hef the chef ( daughter's partner) today in making gluten free scotch eggs which my daughter swears are to die for. Hef delivered our 10.5 kgs turkey yesterday direct from his mate's farm near Crymych. Xmas Eve buffet later today preceded by a smoked salmon & cream cheese bagel with avacado c/w bucks fizz for brunch.

Top stuff, Gareth. Look forward to the verdict on the gluten-free Scotch Eggs. Do you aim for slightly soft yolks within?

That’s quite a size turkey. Bon appé*** (censorship changed appe*** LOLConfused) to you and all Fever poster households for the festivities.

Scotch eggs are not a great favourite of mine but have to say but the fresh cooked gluten free were very nice - yolks half/half EO. Made far too many but daughters returned home well stocked; the rest proved a hit with Scarlett & Brenin!!!

Having some neighbours from the village round tomorrow for an early New Year's Eve roast rib of beef. Opportune moment methinks to sample the wine presents my daughters kindly gave me - an Argentinian Malbec or an Italian Barolo or indeed bothThumbs Up

Sounds lovely, GPR, especially the half/half yolk element. Have Scarlett & Brenin got glossier coats as a result?

Taking a friend back to Bordeaux this pm for the flight home. Quiet evening tomorrow, although a good lunch. New Year’s Day lunch at friends nearby. The host likes to entertain and there’ll be a dozen or more and no driving required.

Coats no glossier but seem very contented once they've run off their excess energy in the forest. Local lunch sounds ideal. Have a good one mate.Thumbs Up

Had salmon en croute with Diane's homemade shortcrust pastry last night with a bottle of Rioja white - very tasty all round. While prepping our potato bed last week for the next planting we found some charlotte salad spuds which we had missed. Scrubbed them & roasted them to accompany the salmon - very good.

Chilli con carne with tomato salsa & garlic bread pre game with some Messi malbec.

We’re on a rump steak plus accompaniments this evening. A first taste of a much trumpeted Drew Bledsoe red.

How was the red? How do you/Mrs EO serve the rump?
