Porsupah gentle portrait

Merry Yuletide!

I hope everyone's having a wonderful time, whatever you're celebrating, and wherever and whomever that may be with. ^_^

Here, I've finished a couple hours' cooking, for a lunch that proved almost as good as I could have hoped for, save for overcooking the vegetables somewhat, though not badly. I treated Mum to roast duck with reasonably crispy skin, roast potatoes, Brussels wrapped in smoked bacon (the fat in the pan was indeed delicious =:), accompanied by some baby carrots, tenderstem broccoli, and green beans, with a pre-made gravy I'd bumped up in appeal with a dash or two of spiced rum and the Shiraz for the table. =:9

We are duly stuffed. ^_^

I'm happy. She enjoyed it, as did I - duck's such a tasty meat, and all the trimmings went so well. And now the TV's got "Brave" playing, which I see no reason to dismiss, being one of my top Pixar favorites, along with Ratatouille and The Incredibles. And after that.. Doctor Who. =:D
