We had a late lunch with Jac’s family on Christmas day. It was close to 2pm by the time we sat down to eat, and I was ready again for another big meal. The theme of the day was meat – lots and lots of meat – vegetarians, this is your warning of what’s ahead! […]

Mid-week roast dinner

On Wednesday night we had roast lamb for dinner. Jac loves making roast dinners, with meat and lots of roasted vegetables – this is of course most excellent, as I love eating roast dinners. On this occasion, Jac flavoured the lamb with rosemary and garlic.       We had roasted butternut pumpkin, sweet potato, carrot, [&hel…
