On Boxing Day this year we had a meal with my 2 boys and my ex mother in law at a local pub. It’s a good way of keeping contact in a dysfunctional family. We’d like to get together more often, and the Christmas holiday is an obvious opportunity. But the chosen restaurant was closed, and when we eventually found an eatery that was open, the soup was only warm.
So next year, Boxing Day 2012, I decided that this annual event shall be hosted in our cottage. And there will be a selection of side dishes. Not a grand meal. So what I would very much like are your thoughts on what I should prepare.
I’m fortunate to have friends around the world and would like to have a selection of side dishes from every part of the globe.
