Thank you and Merry Christmas! I hope you all have a safe and warm cozy day. I raise my glass to all our fellow RC tankers (that’s a lot of glasses by the way).

What did you have? It's not even lunchtime here yet. I've always been unconventional about holiday meals. For Thanksgiving this year we did pot roast and for Christmas we're doing the whole pork chop dinner, with stuffing, mashed potatoes, creamed corn, the whole nine yards. For New Year's Day I'm thinking we might go Mexican, Just for kicks. Anybody else doing something unconventional, or will you mostly be doing ham or turkey? Goose is really big in the UK, isn't it? I'll have to try that one day.

Frohe Weihnachten!!

.... :crazy: Roast potatoes; homemade Yorkshire pudding (yes, I can cook a bit- :| I have to, in fact :lolno: )..Brussels Sprouts (even the dogs are driven off by the gasses they generate :haha: ); Onion gravy (but with a bit of chilli and tomato); roast stuffed chicken breast, and horseradish sauce (love it). Horseradish normally goes with beef, but it's great for clearing the sinuses....all the better to appreciate a glass
of Prosecco. This- followed by two generous glasses of Glenmorangie 10-year old single malt whisky (and I mean GENEROUS :D ). After which, a paracetemol for the ensuing headache :haha:
Merry Hangovers, boys.. :thumbup:
Alles Gute!! Mahlzeit! ;)

Mmm mmm! We had Italian beef on sourdough with potatoes au gratin, macaroni and cheese and whiskey and Stella Artois. Forgive my spelling. I blame the Stella.

I had a normal stuffed with sage and onion stuffing mixed with sausage meat roast turkey that had the breast covered/protected with pork belly skin (turns to crackling) and bacon which obviously goes crispy, all to help keep the turkey from drying out. Alongside that was the pork belly, and the ribs. Plus pigs in blankets, and cheese in blankets. Roast potatos, roast parsnips, carrots, beetroot and mushrooms. Also steamed broccoli and lashings of gravy. And yes, also had brussel sprouts, but they were quartered and fried with bacon bits.

And I've just woken from my food and prosecco induced nap, just in time for desert, Yule log and cream :D

Excellent. Another parsnip fan. Love those things. They were in the pot roast at thanksgiving. And now you have some excellent turkey sandwiches to look forward to, done best open-faced with gravy (IMHO).

Sounds like there's lots of good eats going on today, makes me wish i could go to everybody's house for dinner all at once. 8)

We'll get you some instructions for that, and I have both winter and summer versions if you need photos of anything. Might be a good idea to start a build thread, and maybe one where guys can show off Christmas gifts of the tracked variety? Santa was good to you. 8)

Should have mentioned, the pork belly and ribs were honey glazed :thumbup:
We will be having a cold meat meal tomorrow with pickles and salad, and I'll freeze the left over Turkey in gravy, in portions, for another time. I do that kind of thing with most roast joints, cook an oversized joint, and freeze what's left over mixed in the extra gravy in portion sizes in saved Chinese take away containers.

As for presents, I got a rather nice dremel drill stand and watch repairs vice from one daughter :D

Gday fellas, merry Xmas all round.
We had a seafood salad platter with massive prawns, bugs, crabs and a crayfish , followed by the usual roast meats and veggies.
No tank stuff but that’s a year round gift not a one day thing!!

Good Morning,
Back at work today but the Day Itself was a feast of good things! I made my Meatloaf and there were mashed potatoes and buttered veggies and my egg salad with chocolate cake for dessert. Ate way to much as always. ;o) Santa Claws brought me a Tissot pocket watch to replace my elderly Swiss Army one. Some Papo dinosaur figures were added and for tank stuff, I received a very nice Guido Henn model idler brace for the IS-2.
moving along into the New Year!
