Christmas Feast With Mike's Family
dre: We celebrated on Christmas day at Mike's parents' house. They don't really do potluck, but rather, his dad cooks a lot of food at the restaurant and brings it home.
This year, he made a lot of pigeons. I think many people were overwhelmed by them, and even though he cut them in half, there were lots leftover. Now I like all things poultry and deep fried is even better, so I had half a pigeon. The breast part was good, but I didn't like the leg and thigh part too much as they were more tough.
There were also regular deep fried wings and soft shell crabs. Yummy!
A couple of vegetables dishes were welcomed to offset the deep friedness of everything else.
There was also salty fish chicken fried rice.
Ketchup shrimp. I can't remember if my father-in-law had pre-peeled the shrimps for my sake (yes, he spoils me). I had a couple of shrimps.
There were filet mignon cuts of beef as well as pork chops. Oh my goodness, there was so much food, that I didn't even try any of the pork!
The last main dish was creamy scallops and fish.
For dessert, I brought over a bumbleberry pie from Loblaws. Mike's aunt bought a Tiramisu cake, and Janette baked yummy yummy cookies!
