We're having ours grilled with garlic butter and a green salad and celeriac remoulade and a bottle of Macon Villages.
We'll start the meal with some prosciutto and melon. After the lobster we'll have some wonderful local cheese and eventually get around to finishing with a Limoncello and raspberry semi-freddo. Don't think we'll need a dessert wine with that
We may find room for some mince pies and brandy later in the evening.
This'll be the first Christmas in a while when I've not had to stay off the booze as there was always a chance that Pa would be rushed into hospital - in fact I've spent two Christmas Day nights in the past five years in hospital with him. Now we no longer have him, and Ma is in reasonable health so hopefully I've every excuse to take a drink or two this year, even if it is just the two of us at our rather exclusive party
