hybrid british xmas

holiday greetings, blah, blah, blah. remember that xmas pudding from earlier this month? here's what it looked like after i unwrapped it today.

it smelled so. good. also satisfactorily scented? the brandy butter.

the pudding required a bit of work before we could eat it. namely, reheating via steam,

and covering with brandy.  glug, glug, glug.

brush, brush, brush.

and then?! FIRE!!!

i am going to cover more of my food with alcohol just so i can flame it. doritos? check. i'll use beer or something. maybe tequila!

anyway, back to the pudding. here is a naked slice complete with a soylent green piece.

here it is again covered with brandy butter.

absolutely, wonderfully delicious. i can't believe that i made it! i should get automatic british citizenship for that! (i got a contact buzz offa' it, that's for sure.)

we haven't found the pound coin yet though.

in addition to the pudding, we also had turkey with cranberry sauce and buttered brussels sprouts with bacon and chestnuts.

those sprouts are fucking incredible. (i subbed yogurt for the cream and it was still fantastic.) make them tomorrow. thank me later.
