So for those of Sam who recently had Thanksgiving, and those not of Sam, what looks to be on the table at Yuletide?
Here in sunny Australia, people will be enjoying prawns (shrimp) ande other seafood, mangoes, cherries, avocadoes, cold sliced ham and turkey. A variety of cheese and crackers. For those who are unable to afford that, cold roast chicken.
Fruit cake, Christmas pudding with custard, or perhaps a large piece of pavlova.
When the temperature is in the high 90s, hot roast meals do not appeal.
