So, on the 18th Day of December we had a pre 'Crimbo' buffet* and then I couldn't face drawing food so left it until today, the 19th day, when I had to draw it from memory. It made me feel full all over again, just seeing it. 

* Cheese board, Jacob's crackers, home made apple chutney (by my Mummy),butter, Welsh cakes, cheese straws, pasta, cheese and onion pasties, sausage rolls, kebabs, crumbed ham slice, carrot sticks and dips, party sausages, french bread, onion ring crisps, posh salted crisps, lime poppadoms, swiss roll, pretzels, onion bhajis, samosas, goats cheese and asparagus flan/tart, cornish pasties, cumberlands rolls, praline & salted caramel cheescakes, Christmas pudding cheescake, snowballs, cups of tea, pop, fruit juice, lager, pomegranate seeds (lovely with cheese), and I just realised I forgot to draw the dry roasted peanuts! 

Did it in B&W first but it didn't really 'look a lot like Christmas' - so added the red table cloth which made it all seasonal...or like a blood bath. Hmmm.

Either way, plenty of food and I rather enjoyed drawing it, as well as eating it all, too! Thanks to all our pals who came round and brought lovely grub to share. Mmmmm...might go sneak a bit of late night cheese and biscuits...
