Christmas at Number 5

Just a quick little post to show off our lovely “pot-luck” Christmas dinner!

Christmas is about sharing with family but also being with good friends, so it was a pleasure to spend the evening with Andrea and Kevin.  Kevin decided it would be an excellent idea if he were to roast a prime rib using the fabulous Kamado Joe charcoal barbecue.  How can you have roast beef without Yorkies I ask you???  You’ll see from the pics.  they turned out beautifully, light and crisp, just waiting for the Andrea concocted.  And to finish…the crowning glory, Christmas pudding with fluffy brandy-clementine infused sauce…warm pudding and cold sauce…perfect!








I hope you enjoyed your Christmas as much as we did!
















And I would like to wish you all and happy, healthy and prosperous 2019…Felice Anno Nuovo/Happy New Year!











  1. OMG – What a perfect feast!! Maybe we should all invest in a triplex and you two other couples could cook for us……. Happy New Year!


    • Thanks Mimi! But there may be a dog breed called Yorkie??? Yorkshire Terrier? It’s a shame not to have Yorkshire Puddings more often but how often do we cook up a Prime Rib these days!!! Maybe they would be good with a beef stew or anything beefy with loads of good sauce! Happy New Year to you and your family! Adventures await us in 2019!
