Yuletide Feasting

Merry Christmas everyone! After all the merry-making of the holiday season, I’ve finally found the time to update you on the festive feasting. I’ve had an abundance of lamb, turkey, canapes and such at various abodes…but today’s entry will be about a simple Christmas dinner I cooked for my close friends. Now let me tell you the story behind my dinner…this year, I thought of giving my friends something different from the usual presents and such, so I devised a question to ask them on the pretext of it being for Charlinary.com:

“What is the 1 thing you could eat every day for the rest of your life?”

These were their answers:

  • KIS: Masala Chicken from Samy’s Curry
  • KW: Apple Pork Rib Soup
  • KY: Boon Tong Kee‘s Chicken Rice
  • R: Vegetarian Bee Hoon from a Whampoa hawker centre stall


I actually had a fifth guest, but asking her the same question out of the blue would’ve roused suspicion, so I decided on prawns for her. Chicken rice and vegetarian bee hoon were excluded from the menu and replaced by Cajun Fish and Bangers & Mash respectively in order to suit the festive menu. Here’s my menu for the night:

Gambas a la Plancha
Baby Spinach Salad with Cherry Tomatoes & Bacon Bits

Apple Pork Ribs Soup with Sliced Pear

Masala Chicken & Papadum from Samy’s Curry

Bangers & Mash

Cajun Fish Fillet

It has always been my wish to have a nice quiet dinner with my friends, and I’m glad we managed to have one this Christmas. Thank you all for being present and I hope dinner was to your liking. Rest assured that there’ll be more dinners to come…to my other friends out there, you’ll certainly get a taste of my cooking (once I’ve improved). You can expect recipes from me this 2009 so happy reading! May you all have a awesome year ahead!
