Christmas dinner

Mmm... one of the best parts of Christmas.  Mike and I had two amazing turkey dinners on Christmas day.  The following photos are from the second turkey dinner, the one that actually induced the food coma.

Plum pudding

Plum pudding is a staple of Christmas dinner in our house.  It may be the best dessert I've ever had.  Of course the fact that you only eat it once a year makes it all that much more delicious.  I love it so much, in fact, that two years ago I rolled away from the table to write the following poem:

Ode to Plum Pudding

You are sweet.
You are delicious.
You appear but once a year.

Juicy are your raisins.
Your sauce gives me hallucinations.
Butter, cream and sugar
Are so much more
Than the sum of their parts.

My blood sugar soars.
My food memory roars.
Oh plum pudding,
My heart belongs to you.
