Mexican Christmas Dinner Update.

Just a very very short post today.

I posted a blog the other day telling you about us planning a Mexican Christmas Dinner. Well I watched Country File on Sunday night and they said that the Turkey actually originates in Mexico. So therefore everybody who eats Turkey on Christmas day. Will actually be eating a Mexican dinner just like us! Isn't it a small world?

  1. Well I didn't know that. We will be having pheasant and partridge. I spoke to a friend on the train tonight who spends the day on her own who said she will be having beans on toast. My mother used to have a bowl of soup when she was old and preferred to be on her own. It is a day when everyone should be able to feel happy doing whatever they wish in my opinion.

    1. Hi Rachel. I have ate pheasant but never had partridge. Beans on toast is excellent if they are Heinz beans. I believe Haricot beans also came from America. The American Navy took them to Italy and they got covered in tomato sauce and became baked beans. Even the potatoes originate in South America. So traditional Christmas dinner is very cosmopolitan with the Brussel Sprouts being the only European dish. I agree everyone should do what ever they want and what they want to eat or drink. Thanks!

  4. I saw that too Dave, thought about your Mexican Christmas dinner as we tucked into chicken fajitas tonight. Are you all going to wear Mexican inspired costume too? If so I think you should definitely share some pictures with us. Did the last of our food shop today in Aldi, that's me, not stepping foot in a shop until well after Christmas now - hooray !!

    1. Hi Twiggy. Yes it was a very good Country-file program this week. They also mentioned how Boxing day got its name. Perhaps they read our blogs? I loved the Bath Christmas market and the traditional Christmas decorations.

      No we won't be wearing any Mexican costumes but we are having a chilli and a mixed buffet. Have a great Christmas Twiggy!

  5. We are in the middle of harvesting the pigs, sheep and goats, and need to leave a space in between the doing of the harvest and the eating of the meat, which only leaves the chickens in the freezer, one of which will do the honours on Christmas Day.

  6. I think you are the most self supporting people out of all the blogs I follow Vera. We will be eating Chilli made out of the mince from one of our heifers. Have a great Christmas.
