    Since we live in the southern hemisphere, Yule falls at Mid-summer roughly, seeing as the whole point is being in touch with the earth and seasons, we will be having fresh caught rabbit, and roast beef (hubby is of British background) asparagus salad, sliced vine ripe tomatoes slavered in balsamic vinegar, good olive oil covered with my garden's fresh basil and curls of parmesean, green bean salad, fresh watermelon, peaches and cherries and of course corn on the cob. All to be eaten on our front porch washed down with icey cold beer and followed with a swim in our pond... Yule in Australia... fa la la

    For our midwinter feast, its all about the pig.. Cerderwin, we usually do ham, stollen, lots of german and scottish cookies, hot mulled wine and cider, and my husband cooks up pumpkin and potatos and mashes them together with lots of butter, brussel sprouts are also in season then or something else cabbagey, and leeks, sometimes Rob does leek soup or pumpkin and leek soup... hot and satisfying

      The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides
      By the inequities of the selfish and the tyrany of evil men
      Blessed is he who in the name of charity and goodwill
      Shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness
      For he is truly his brothers keeper
      And the finder of lost children
      And i will strike down upon thee
      With great vengence and furious anger
      Those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers
      And you will know my name is the lord

            I'm going to my sisters, so who knows!

            I'm looking forward to cooking a nice glazed ham on Boxing Day (thats the day after crimbo fyi) with fresh, local sprouts (we get them still on the stalk! mmmm! :drool: ), roasted potatoes and roasted parsnips, and mushy-peas (another british speciality )

                Mushy peas - mmmmm :drool: they are soooo good. I cheat though, and use 'quick soak' peas, which you only need to soak for 4 hours instead of overnight They're more of a northern thing I think, although they've spread in recent years. It's traditional to have them with fish and chips!

                Gammon is basically thickly cut ham

                  Tonight is our Yule ritual. We are having Wish Soup--which everyone is bringing a chopped veggie for. I'm providing the lamb for the Wish Balls. And people are bringing lots of good food to share, as well. So the menu won't be completely known untill all get here.
                  Good food shared with family of the heart... what could be better?

                  It seems some folks confuse "secrets" with Mysteries.
                  The Mysteries aren't secret.
                  They are there for whoever wishes to seek them out.
                  There just aren't any shortcuts.

                  That's the Secret.

                            My family is having turkey, roast potatoes, brussel sprouts, pigs in blankets, stuffing, and probably carrots and other veg. Of course bread sauce and cranberry sauce too. I'm having the same except exchanging the turkey for a puff pastry mushroom bake cos I am not a big fan of turkey. For pudding: christmas pudding with custard, brandy butter and brandy cream and another 'surprise' pudding for those who don't like CHristmas pud! Very traditional but we only eat it once a year so what the heck!!|
