Chrismas Eve - home cooked gammon with all the little cloves in a fancy pattern. Always had goose up to last year when we went for duck and by unaminous vote - duck this year.

The price of goose is disgusting this year - why the leap in price? Mind you they only lay once a year so perhaps something to do with cold wet weather.
