Post-church treatsMy sister and I had planned an elaborate Christmas lunch as it would be a family event after five years. Unfortunately she couldn’t make it to Bombay. However, that didn’t stop us from stuffing ourselves as usual. The menu was simple (pictures below) but we savoured every morsel and are already waiting to tear through the leftovers.
We had carols playing in the background and the house was filled with the aroma of the boneless chicken, which we basted with the pork lard my father and I rendered last week. Sean had Christmas lunch at his own parents' home so he'll have his share this evening.
To add a more festive spirit I mixed some limoncello mojitos with the liqueur that I had bought in July when I went on a press trip to Venice. It was our first time tasting limoncello and soon after the lunch my dad and I graduated to drinking straight shots of it while my mother enjoyed it poured over some vanilla ice cream.
Here’s hoping you all had a delightful and flavourful Christmas as well.
