Aussie-style Christmas in July
Our hosts Caz & Johnny deck the halls with plenty of cheerful Christmas decorations and set the scene for a fun and homely Christmas in July. The main dish is their roast lamb and pork and there's plenty of food with everyone's side dishes added to the table. Funny Kris Kringle presents add plenty of laughter to the day along with liberal amounts of wine, beer and champagne which are kept cold in the bath tub esky. Perhaps dessert should have been a Christmas fruit pudding with warm custard but I felt more confident preparing a lighter dish of meringue with mixed berries and passionfruit. The eggnog served was delicious and I'll have to remember to get the recipe. I'm sometimes a fan of the light Italian wines like Lambrusco and today I discovered Sparking Moscato which is also low in alcohol and tasted pretty good.
