WE’VE HAD A NICE CHRISTMAS: I’ve never done the island Christmas before — this was something my sister came up with as a way of celebrating my brother-in-law’s successful completion of chemo — but I have to say that it’s been pretty nice. We’re cooking a leg of lamb and turkey as usual, though I marinated the lamb in jerk seasoning this time, just to get into the island spirit.

Hope you’re having a good Christmas too!
