I started the day with scrambled egg on sour dough (drizzled with a little chilli oil and 'fried' in a dry pan)

I made a few mince pies, washed down with some mulled wine.

Snafu'd a few chocolates along the way.

I have, in the fridge: champagne, foie gras, lobster and poussin all awaiting cooking/shovelling down my gullet. I'm tempted to just do the champers and foie and save the other two for tomorrow.

What y'all stuffed so far/got planned?

Ended up having the lobster with some buttered and minted spuds.

Made a chicken curry today. I think I need to sling the poussin into the freezer and have it another day.
