smoked salmon with lemon
It was a bit of a last minute decision but I decided to have a fishy Christmas this year. Smoked salmon with lemon and a dusting of ground pepper for breakfast (and two boiled eggs) and a salmon en croute for Christmas lunch with roast potatoes cooked in goose fat accompanied with mashed carrots and potatoes with garden peas and a chiffonard of fresh basil. Just kinda made it up as I went along. Somewhere along the way two bottles of French red wine have been imbibed and I watched Rick Stein's Cornish Christmas on bbc iplayer as I cooked. This afternoon I watched Patrick Stewart as Scrooge in a channel four film of A Christmas Carol and then went for a doze before catching up with the Christmas edition of Doctor Who tonight. A cool Yule so far. The cats from next door have been in and out for treats and Christmas cuddles.
