Brandy and Coke Gammon glaze *Christmas Lunch*








We decided to go all out for Christmas, even though there were only four of us.

My fabulosity (my partner in crime) and I did most of the cooking, while our partners: G-star and my fiance braaied a good piece of steak and lamb ribs.
I was in charge of the gammon and roast veggies. I had never cooked a gammon before, and so for some truly SA inspiration, I followed a recipe from a fellow South African food blogger.

See it here: http://whatsforsupper-juno.blogspot.com/2010/12/christmas-gammon-glazed-with-brandy-and.html

Mr fabulosity cooked the most delicious roast chicken with more-ish stuffing and he made the traditional pudding - well, Woolies made the pudding, but he poured enough brandy on it to make it his own. There was also a potato bake thrown in the mix somewhere...

We sipped on Pimms and lemonade and drank good red wine with our late lunch, before promptly flopping down on the couch like a bunch of breached whales, tummies bursting at the seams, with AbFab in the background. *bliss
