Christmas Dinner with the Strains

The Strains graciously invited us into their home last night for a proper english christmas dinner. We began with Crackers and donned our crowns boldly! The 1st course was roasted red peppers with fennel, served with crusty bread. 2nd course was chestnut, leek and mushroom tartlets and roasted butternut squash and sage risotto with pine nuts, 3rd course was Homemade Christmas pudding with choice of vanilla custard, soy custard or double cream. Sheena and David outdid themselves and even delivered a meal that was vegetarian. (The Christmas Goose was quite sad!)
