We had a wonderful day today - hosting a Birthday Lunch for 60-odd souls out by the pool at La Rochelle. We did a Baked Glazed Ham studded with cloves and served with a mustard and sherry glaze. If the supermarkets can put up Christmas decorations in November, we can jolly well serve Christmas Ham then too! Kids in the pool, a chaotic game of volleyball, and infants getting lost in the undergrowth all made for a very pleasant day!
The requirements for a fine afternoon are:- a very big tree, some decent weather and a fairly wet pool. All other details take care of themselves! I hope all our European and American friends had a nice warm day too?
Happy Christmas one and all!
