The Christmas Lunch

Posted on 25.12.2009

It’s Christmas and I am penning down this post as I just wipe my fingers after the day’s lunch. Well, in reality it was not just one meal but a delectable sequence of lip smacking dishes – each one well seasoned with intricate memories of my boyhood. My only companion for this exciting food-filled day was my dearest friend for last 12 years, my fiancé for 11 years and now my loving wife for the last 10, Anita.
