O Happy Day

from w
It's a lovely Christmas day here - not hot, not cold, and the men and boys in the family made a lovo - an underground oven for the dalo and pork and Bale and I added cooking from the kitchen - prawns, mussels in coconut cream, baked chicken etc. We headed off to the local church where young Andrew played a mean drumbeat to the hymns. One of the lads stayed home to look after the lovo. This afternoon only one is asleep, Grandpa, the rest are on computers or watching a DVD. Life is different each generation for Christmas. We don't have Santa Claus here and the family gifts are mainly frugal and useful! We were too busy to open the gifts until about 11 a.m. and there weren't too many surprises as sticky fingers had guessed when was inside the colour wrapping papers!

Sounds good Wendy, we are eating hot duck tonight. Have a lovely day and may 2011 be good to you.

As Penny says--except for the duck which sounds luscious--I am making braided bread to add to the family dinner.
