Christmas lunch Mmmm.

Feeling a bit delicate at the moment. Had our Department Christmas lunch today and I think it disagreed with me big time.

I had:

CRISPY PORK BELLY with APPLE and ROSEMARY JELLY
ROAST PARTRIDGE with PORK and CRANBERRY STUFFING, SAVOURY BREAD PUDDING and PORT JUS
CHOCOLATE and HAZELNUT FONDANT with NUTELLA MASCARPONE

Plus a nice glass of Merlot, Vodka, coffee and a squigy chocolate probably marzipan thing. Yum.

I don't know what the offender was, but my guts are feeling it now. :(

My goodness that was a rich combination - I'm not surprised that you feel a little delicate!! Lots of water and take it easy!!

it supposed to be rich, it's Christmas!

I think three courses is far too much for me.

Could just be too much rich food at once on an off day. I've had that happen to me before. Hope you're feeling better soon.

Alas, this isn't a one off. I think rich food in that quantity throws my body into a panic. I'd have been happy with just the starter really.

Well, Nutella mascarpone sounds kind of skanky...

Nice default, by the way!

Nooo! Nutella mascapone was divine! Not much relationship to Nutella at all (not that I'd have minded, Nutella is a huge weakness of mine), it was all hazelnut flavoured and yummy!

The default really should have been 'Sick of Bloody Slade and Wizard and if I hear 'Stop the Cavalry' one more effing time I'll gut Jonah Louie and stuff his record somewhere deeply intimate'. But it didn't fit.

Sounds gorgeous but very, very rich. No wonder your gut rebelled.

Bogwitch's love rich food, but ingore the fact that rich food doesn't love Bogwitch's.

Bloody hell! No wonder you feel iffy! Get your head down and I'm sure you'll feel better in the morning.

Or possibly not.

Good luck!

I never do it by halves.

That's quite a lucullan feast and I'd comment more but then I ate smoked trout pate for dinner...

There didn't seem like that much of it. I only had two roast potatoes, for instance, but bloody hell did it fill me up!

Your menu is making me hungry.

I'm sorry something disagreed with you.

I could eat it all over a again! (except the Partridge, I wasn't that impressed).

Well, Merlot and chocolate should go together all right. Must have been the Vodka.

Hope it didn't last for long.

Not really. I just have to accept I can't eat great big dinners.
