+ What is on the Lamont family Christmas Day menu this year? Brekky will be croissants and coffee. Lunch will be light as dinner is always a traditional Christmas dinner, one of those where no one’s top buttons are left done up at the end! We’ll have glazed ham, roast turkey, roast potatoes and kumara, Mum’s famous potato salad, homemade coleslaw and all the trimmings and condiments you can imagine. Dessert is pavlova, Christmas pudding and custard and my grandmother’s special dessert (we call it “kushcafluff”) that my sister makes.
+ How will your family be spending Christmas Day this year? Early morning will involve opening and playing with presents, breakfast with family and opening of more presents, home for a nap if we are lucky, then off to my sister’s place for the traditional dinner (my sister Michaela and I are taking turns to host now that Mum has hesitantly handed over the tradition, so it will be at our place next year).
