I can not recall if I said in a previous post but we had a fabulous lunch on Christmas Day. We drove to a seal colony nearby (in New Zealand), stopped off on the way and picked up some freshly caught Mussels. It is, for want of a better phrase, a roadside caravan that sells crayfish and mussels. All freshly caught, and all freshly cooked. We added that to the platter that had been prepared for us by the hotel (pictured to the left) and had a lovely lunch, all capped off with a bottle of champagne (you pronounce the 'T' you know...sorry, an 'in joke') and a fresh orange juice. As you can see, they were not shy with the lunch and included all manner of delicacies to get the taste buds dancing!
As you can see, there was fresh salmon, beef, salami, turkey, asparagus, sun dried tomatoes, olives, cheeses, cucumber, broccoli, cherry tomatoes, grapes, strawberries, melon, cherries, all manner of nuts, crackers and toasted bread. It really was an awesome lunch. The one downside being that it made Christmas Dinner a bit of a struggle in the evening!
