I have been eating a lot. For those who missed it on Arsebook, that Christmas Fondue:
You make normal fondue (with Gruyere, Emmenthal, white wine and kirsch) then you add STILTON and PORT to it then you dip in little cubes of roast potato and parsnip and stuffing balls and tiny sausages and maybe sprouts roasted with chilli. It is a dish of Christmas genius. And that was just Christmas eve. Recipe by me but fondue made by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] cleanskies who has mad fondue makin skillz (it's all in the muscle memory as far as judging cheese/wine consistency goes, see). Ratio of cheeses that worked best was Gruyere-Emmenthal-Stilton in a ratio of 3:3:2 - any more Stilton makes it stinky without noticeably improving the flavour..

Christmas day itself we went over to [livejournal.com profile] tinyjo's where we ate the biggest goose in the world (in our defence, there were other guests so we didn't eat all of it) and trimmings and christmas pudding and chocolate log and tiny mince pies and now I have type 2 diabetes probably.

For Christmas I got some books and a CD and a tiny synthesiser* and a tea towel that shows how to carve a triceratops. And a tin of unicorn meat. And an excellent Lego model of Fallingwater as detailed here that [livejournal.com profile] cleanskies and I spent the afternoon building. And OTHER THINGS thankyou everybody.

Tomorrow we go down to my mum (her birthday is on 28th) to drop off late pressies with her and my sister and nephew, but now we are going to watch Machete and maybe a couple of episodes of Samurai Jack then go to sleep.

*Geek fact - the tiny synthesiser packs an epic punch as it has the same filter as the legendary Korg MS-20. Route it through a proper speaker and it sounds amazing. It also has an aux in so I can route other sounds through that filter. Muahahahahaha.
