Pretty chilly out there this morning.
They say it'll stay under zero all day, fantastic blue skies after midday.

Just a turkey crown this year, there's only the two of us.
Stuffing's in a dish apart.
Garlic/Rosemary rolled in bacon and stuffed into little holes made into the
Butter under the skin to keep it moist and then protected with bacon strips.
Placed on a bed of stuff to keep it off the bottom of the roasting tin.
Cranberry & Apple sausages in their blankets with a sprig of Thyme (our Sage
bush has expired).

Prawn Cocktail with Avocado.
I used to hate Avocado, tastes like soap, but I never do a Prawn Cocktail
without it these days.
Prawn Cocktail was always a starter at our family Christmas dinner at home
with Mum, I always have it at as a starter still.

This is an article that appeared in the local paper last week.
Bill & Yvonne, and their daughter Robin have been friends of mine for ages, nearly 25 years, Bill and I served together in the army in Germany. They live just down the road, here in Zevenaar, and we see far too little of each other.
The paper is doing a series of "random" interviews of people in the town who live on the corner of streets (no, not in a cardboard box).
The title of this piece is "In love with anything old and that has a story behind it"
That's our Bill, he'll be 50 next week.
