Christmas dinner as made by me;

whole roast leg of lamb - never done that before. Stuck it on as low as possible overnight and it just fell apart beautifully at lunch time. Roasted potatoes, parsnips, squash and sweet potatoes. Steamed baby carrots and mangetout. I've got to say, it was superb. And I made a pecan pie for the first time ever. (Jamie Oliver) Wasn't bad!

I now have the first entry in my new wine journal. ('New' referring to the journal!) Tupungato. Cab Sauv Malbec. I can strongly recommend. I rate it high 2. Now I'm drinking Tesco Finest Californian Cab Sauv. I rate it medium 1.

(ratings in ascending order; low 1, 2, 3, medium 1, 2, 3, high 1, 2, 3)

I know nothing about wine apart from that if it's red, I'll drink it. I'm going to try and be a little bit more informed by next Christmas.

LoL. Maybe you should write in the wine journal after one glass rather than leaving it til the entire bottle has been consumed and memory is rendered....hazy??
