    As usual I'm cooking on Christmas day for in-laws and brother in law, my family is in Scotland so only 5 with another 5 on Boxing day, Sister in law, boyfriend and niece. They think I can cook just because I have a GH.

    I'm going to make the stuffing a little bit different this year by adding corn flakes, rind of a lemon, cranberrys, apple and anything else I can think of.

    Any more tips out there?

    My big holiday I cook for his XMAS Eve, which is a little different...it's all seafood...technically you're supposed to have 7, I have about 5, I may add two little things to round it out...we shall see...

    I also love seafood Stewarts, being brought up on an Island off mainland Scotland didn't have much choice, as long as it's not overcooked. Our boxing treat is a family meal at our local Ghurkha restaurant when I'm home.

    Nice one guapo on Gordon Keith, he's right we can all remember waking up and wondering what happened. Too many for me. And who remembers the last party?
    After a company Christmas doo a few years ago I left after trying to empty the contents of the bar looking for a taxi and fell into a river, good job it was only 3 inches deep about a fortnight later it was 6 feet deep and moving!

    Practised and didn't like the corn flake stuffing too much, think I'll stick to the original stuffing for Christmas.

    I actually did pull off the seven fishes, which is really seven seafood servings, it's not seven actual fishes. This is the first day back at work in a few days. I really only had one kind of bad drinking day in the past week. I was actually modding fine, but then a friend brought something into the mix that I don't do anymore, and was reminded why - this particular substance simply, well, it simply makes me sick now.... Anyway, a little too much eating, so above everything, need to get on a better nutritional regiment now that the holidays are sort of over. I am not worries about NYE, I rarely do much, it's such an amateur night out, especially in NYC...I'm fine staying home...or leaving my apartment after midnight, walking by the neighborhood bars seeing all the aftermath...(usually end up going home with someone the times I've done that....LOL!!)

    Yeh I managed to get through Xmas without too much booze and now on a diet which includes cutting out cider. OMG
    It's only 3 pints a day to give up but tough as I look forward to it.
    NYE used to be a big piss up in Scotland lasting 2 or 3 days, couldn't dream of doing that now.
    I enjoy watching Jools Holland's Hootenanny on BBC2 and watching the fireworks from my house, must be getting old.

    Two, three days....yeah those days are over. I'd have a nervous breakdown if I tried one of those now. I actually had a one glass of red wine last night. There was some left over from the holidays, so I figured I'd finish it. I still feel a little bloated...I think I need to go to a spa or something... we shall see. Most people's work is dead here in NYC around this time, including time, except for certain industries, like spas! LOL
