After the xmas eve party at my place, the very next day we headed to Gareth and Kim’s for a big feast. We were promised a home cooked dinner by Kim, but boy were we surprised by what was in store for us.

The dinner was for some 2 dozen people, but I believe there were enough food to feed at least two rugby teams, including reserves!

First, just look at the schedule above to get an indication of the work needed for this epic dinner. Preparation actually started more than a day in advance (for the food alone), and longer if you count in buying groceries, gifts, and extra table/chairs for everyone.

The photos you see here are some 70% of the dishes served, there are some that somehow escaped the lens. As far as I remember, here are what we were served:

  • 2x roast chicken with lotsa pigs in blanket
  • bread roast in pork lard
  • seafood bisque
  • prawn salad
  • 3 x pork loin
  • 3 full racks of pork ribs
  • 2 types of potato
  • 3 types of salad
  • couscous
  • roast vegetable
  • pate
  • 3 types of salad
  • 3 types of desserts
  • drinks

It was impossible to pick a favorite, everything were awesome. I can make use of some ribs and pork loin right now (or anytime) for sure!

Recipes of some of these dishes can be found at http://www.kimberlycun.com/category/homemade-recipes/

Kim includes photos of each step for her recipe too, super easy to follow.  This entry is on the pork ribs we were served, I believe.

In the original schedule, apple crumble was supposed to come out at 8:45, but thanks to everyone being overfed with all these awesome dishes, desserts didn’t make their way out until 11:45 pm.

Of course, nobody complained, 3 more hours to digest is a good thing. :D

As with the slightly more mature theme this year, no one passed out from drinking too much, though many almost have a coma from all the food.

we were all very well fed at the end of the night

At the end of the night, Gareth & Kim played Santa & Santarina and distributed carefully chosen gifts to everyone. That was especially a sweet touch, thanks guys, and lets do this again next year and every year.

and everyone got a gift from the hosts!
