Today’s Daily Prompt asks us to “Describe the most satisfying meal you’ve ever eaten in glorious detail”.
I’ve had some truly satisfying meals. Defining the most satisfying is difficult. Should I choose one where a hard earned hunger made it satisfying, perhaps one that was cooked at home with love and shared with friends, perhaps the most glorious restaurant meal?
The other problem I have is my poor memory would be hard-pressed to provide “glorious detail” on far too many of the great meals I have eaten.
So I’m going to tell of a meal that I do remember quite a few details from that was satisfying on many levels.
A few years ago I moved to Newcastle and my second year there I was living with Sonia and Blaze, her son, with my daughter Jessica living nearby with her mother.
As Christmas got close I decided to have a big dinner with the big roast ham that my father had always cooked with all the trimmings.
Preparations started a couple of weeks before when I started making some papercraft models to decorate the table. There was a house, a Xmas tree, some elves, reindeer and Santa all to be made before the day.
