After the service we went with two couples to the Cambridge House Hotel in Millom (see pictures) for a traditional English Christmas Dinner. The hotel was built in 1890. I think this was the fourth Christmas meal since we got here. We started eating at 1:00 and finished at 3:30. I had a starter of vegetable soup, while Carolyn had a fruit mix. Then we moved on to the meal of turkey, sausage wrapped in bacon, mashed and roasted potatoes, brussels sprouts, parsnips, mixed vegetables, dressing, and more. The turkey was delicious, or as the Brits say "gorgeous." The desserts included Christmas pudding, banana splits, and mine and Carolyn's choice of Tennessee Mud Cake which was really delicious caramel favored cheesecake. Just as I thought we were finished they came out with coffee, hot tea (which I am becoming a fan of), a variety of cheese, and crackers. We finally finished with some gorgeous mints.
Tomorrow we're going to do it all over again as we have been invited to Boxing Day meal at the home of one of the best cooks in the church. Do a Google search for Boxing Day. Very interesting history to a very British Commonwealth holiday.
