Christmas at Trinity Beach

Christmas is much on the minds of the MB family at present. The general consensus is for a tradtional home made hot lunch. First Daughter and MB have therefore hatched a plan to celebrate Christmas Day at the Northern Beaches of Cairns. This entails booking an air-conditioned, waterfront apartment so that the traditional hot lunch can be made and enjoyed in relative comfort!
MB's first draft menu follows:

Christmas Lunch Menu
Roasted Turkey, fresh free range from Marsh's Butchers, with sage & onion stuffing.

Roasted Rolled Loin of Pork stuffed with Apples & Wine Soaked Prunes.
Oven Roasted Tablelands' potatoes & pumpkin, kaukau, red onion & carrots. Seasoned with fresh mixed herbs and extra virgin olive oil.

Baby Peas infused with Corinne's home grown Mint.
Mesclun Salad with Vine Ripened Tomatoes and Millaa Millaa Buffalo Milk Bocconcini dressed with Balsamic & Olive Oil.
Traditional Home Made Cognac Steeped Christmas Pudding wrapped in calico accompanied by warm home made Crème Patissiere.
A selection of Ice Cold Drinks including: XXXX Gold & Corona, Trevor Jones Sparkling Shiraz, Dorrien Estate Rosè, Voyager Estate Sauvignon Blanc, Yarra Valley Pinot Noir & Chez Coles Sparkling Mineral Water for those not partaking.
