Getting in early, we had our Book Club Christmas Do (with partners) at the end of the month. The weather has been gorgeous - perfect for pre-dinner drinks outdoors followed by ridiculous but fun party games.
It was a pot-luck and the Green Goddess (at whose house it was) was very impressed that everyone managed to bring interesting and tasty food (rather than 25 packets of crisps). Cous-cous salad; prawn kebabs; baked fish in banana leaves (that was my offering); roast potatoes with rosemary, asparagus and cherry tomatoes; barbecued chops; fresh fruit platter, and Saxby mush (a sort of trifle with excess alcohol all mixed up rather than layered). We generally do eat and drink well at book club...
