    Oh for fucks sake!

    It's nearly that time of the year that I weigh-in the Nectar points on booze.

    Being mega organised this year. We're hosting, have all 3 kids as well as my folks (who always cook every year without fail so its time they had a year off) so my better half and I are doing Christmas dinner. We planned the menu last night, as we plan to buy things sporadically to spread the cost of it all. She's a bit good at cooking so the menu sounds utterly ridiculous.

    I'm actually very much looking forward to this year's festivities, contrary to my default grumpiness prior to December.

    13th-19th November, Sainsbury's are doing double-you-points back on Nectar...not food or most booze, but I think Champagne is included in that deal.

    Like Langers, we are hosting this year, 9 of us. We had a trial run last weekend ( lamb though not turkey) and it went perfectly. I insist everyone wears a Christmas outfit this year, even me 88 year old mother who will be dressed as ' Number 1 Elf ' ( although when trying it on she did say ' well I look a right bloody Prat ')

    Also like Langers I'm very much looking forward to this year's festivities

    Just injected the Christmas cake again with brandy. The aromas from it are fantastic.

    Tried the pickled onions and shallots yesterday,added a little sugar to the vinegar this year, lovely. Gala Pie and other stuff ordered from the butchers in Gornal.

    Christmas crackers got and table wear, snowflakes this year.

    I could go on.....and on....and on, but I will spare you

    Started to put my beer lineup for Christmas Day together.

    Bought a bottle of this Wicked Weed Genesis Blonde to go with the main course:



    This beer starts life as a saison, and is then moved to wine barrels for aging. Papaya and guava are added and it is aged for six months. As is common with Wicked Weed beers there is a little funky farmyard on the nose, but lots of soft tropical notes too. Not dissimilar to a white wine, an oaked chardonnay perhaps. The tartness is not too heavy, and those lovely tropical notes really shine through.

    However, I'm really tempted to search out a bottle of Burning Sky - This Land instead as it sounds absolutely perfect and I'm slightly concerned about the tropical fruit notes of the Wicked Weed not matching the food:



    A mixed fermentation beer aged on 150 grams per litre of pressed grape skins in a steel tank and a mix of oak barrels. The result is a subtle and very refreshing nod to both the grape and the grain. This Land is our land and this land was made for you and me.

    Socks before or after trousers, but never before pants. That's the rule.

    Frankly I'm stunned that the Pret Christmas Dinner sandwich didn't win as it's a work of art. I had the Sainsbury's ham hock brioche dealy very recently and can confirm it's a winner.

    The Costco one is a winner. It's cut into about 8 slices, on it is turkey, stuffing, lettuce, brie, bacon and cranberry sauce. I can confirm it's a winner.

    So happens I've got to go to Costco next week at some point and renew my membership / buy too much stuff I won't use.
