Yes, Lyn.  All kinds of fish.  Prawns, calamari, catfish, scallops.  Whatever they can get their hands on, I guess.

There was also mention of Viggo Mortensen, I believe he is the actor from up my way.....Watertown, NY to be exact. Never met him, but I know the area is pretty proud of him.

Our Christmas plans are long and complicated as usual. My Father-In_ Law is in a nursing home, so we are going to pick up Mom and go to the nursing home for Christmas dinner. Can't say I'm looking forward to that, but it will be nice to be with him when he can't get out. Then we are heading to Rochester to see my Niece, her family, my sister and her 2 grandkids.......then spend the night in Roch. with my other niece.

Hi Everyone..I'm Back! I tried to be 'back' an hour ago but couldn't get in...room must have been too crowded! You all talk too much!

I decided it was too early in the morning for champers Aleta so I have bought myself a steaming hot cup of Irish Coffee....thought the heat would kill the alcohol but I actually feel quitelight headed. WHEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! bear_wacko  bear_wacko

I am heading into town soon...decided to make SueAnns' festive fruit cake from her other post...love things with glace fruit and nuts...yum!
Sorry to hear there are a few sickies....hope the collywobbles go away soon!

Hmm...so I need a date for the party? Okay...I've lined up Orlando Bloom. Yummy! bear_wub  Can we eat our dates? Guess that wouldn't be too polite now would it? Okay, I'll have to settle with just drooling over him whilst swying to the music. Think I need to make my next coffee a straight. bear_ermm
Soz to those girls who like Aragorn and Captain Jack Sparrow...I like my men sqeaky clean and smellin' good...like my legolas  bear_wub ...not grubby and sweaty. bear_whistle

Looks like the aussies are up and at it and those on the other side of the pond are checking out? Where's all the Kiwis??

Patty...Viggo played Aragorn in the Lord of the rings trilogy. He's the grubby one. bear_tongue

That little shoe is so cute Tammy!

Food on Christmas day? I have had such an upside down kinda December...I was pushing for cheese on toast for Chrissie lunch...but mum said no. bear_ermm
Duck? YUCK! Don't know if it's the brownish colour of the meat, the strong taste, or the thought of what I'm eating...but I have eaten it once only. Where's that chucking smiley?
We will probably go for seafood too...quick, easy and tasty. Although I MAY ask mum about the possibility of KFC.  bear_happy The kids never eat proper meals on the day anyways...too full of chocolate and fizzy drinks. We have an easy day this year, just us, my folks and my sister...eight all together.

We're having Salmon on christmas day.

Sarah, KFC would be tasty too. Their biscuits are YUMMY! Though I found that the KFCs in London didn't have the biscuits. Do you guys get their yummy buttery backing powder biscuits in Oz??

Sorry Sarah and Patty....I got him first for the Chrissie party and he has eyes for me only....at least until my hubby gets home, then you can fight between you for who get's him next. bear_thumb
I had to knock back my other heart throb Antonio Banderas when Orlando accepted first, so I'm happy to hand him on to the first to put their hand up. Don't ever say I never give you anything! bear_tongue
Now be nice...no shoving!

Duck.....yummy! especially the way I cook it. Here is the recipe:
Salt & Pepper the duck (I usually cut it into half or quarters) Cook for 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Remove to a different pan (or drain off all the fat) then put on the sauce: 1/4C. honey 1/2 t. Ginger 1T worchester sauce, cook 1/2 hour longer........sweet, crispy......

Daphne...as far as I know we don't get those bikkies...sounds like we are missing out!
Sorry Ellen..but no matter how nicely you try to dress up that duck, I'll pass. Mind you I may be tempted to try that recpe on chicken! Sounds tasty!
