Christmas lunch

I know the posts have been a little scarce of late over here at mrsanguine.com but it's been an eventful couple of weeks with work and Mrs Sanguine's broken finger on my mind. Things have finally begun to settle down after the Christmas feeding frenzy and I thought it was high time I got back into the photography game. A couple of new projects lined up for the coming year but we'll start with a simple series of shots from my Christmas lunch.

In my line of work, it's a wonder whenever I get time off during any of the holidays. It was a real stroke of luck I managed to spend Christmas Day back at home this year. My good pals M and D opened up their home, cooked up this great huge feast and invited us freeloaders over for a lazy afternoon of grazing on many treats.

Chicken, duck, sausages, salads, ribs... the list was seemingly endless.

Not to make light of the main courses that were served, but we were certainly spoilt for choice when it came to the desserts. I counted 7 cakes, possibly more, that were brought out one after the other. This gorgeous fruit cake by D's mom took the cake (oops!). Lovingly made over 2 weeks ago, it's been bathed regularly with generous helpings of highly intoxicating brandy over the fortnight it sat in the refridgerator. I had a mild high after my second piece. Guess who ended up carting a third of the unfinished cake home? ;)

Not to be outdone was this equally delicious carrot cake, also by D's mom. Moist yet firm, like how every piece of carrot cake I've had this year have failed to be.

Nothing like hanging around a kitchen table stacked full of food.

Topped everything off with a generous serving of Gula melaka flavored ice cream from The Ice Cream Gallery. Good stuff.

Thanks for making me feel hungry in the middle of the night.

Great shots!
