And Lo, it was Good... and Lo, I am Fatter

From our Christmas breakfast (while unwrapping presents) of buttered panettone...



... to Christmas dinner...



... I indulged and it was marvelous.

The menu was similar to last year's with some changes:

Chestnut and sweet potato soup (the recipe comes from this excellent blog)
Sage and cheddar biscuits

Maple-glazed ham
Turkey breast rolled with cranberry and cashew stuffing
Butternut squash crumble
Green beans and shiitake mushrooms
Cranberry, orange and port relish

Dark sticky gingerbread with whipped cream
Single-malt scotch truffles

Thanks all!

AP: If there's one in particular, let me know!

Betsy: I made a bread and butter pudding on year with the left-over panettone with amaretto sauce... unreal, it was so good. Wow, French toast would be *amazing*! I'm so pleased you're my blog chum too. :)
