Deck the halls, roll out the barrel of Real Ale, sing hey-nonny round the maypole, send someone to Tesco's for that rum Selkie likes so much in her daiquiris, put the kettle on for Thog's decaffeinated (snigger) tea, pour Lili a Guinness and give her all the chocolate she needs, and pray essay the ancient Line Dance Of Greeting (as performed only in certain parts of Essex around the time of the Chartist Riots) for lilifae is among us!
Welcome, Liz.

Indeed you can; the one thing we've been lacking is someone versed in the black arts of barbecue. I just tend to burn everything and then shout, `It's your own fault for making me cook!'

Then I'm also bringing my famed tandoori turkey. Turkey so moist, you can clench a handful of white meat in your fist and feel the juice running down your arm.

Then I'm definitely sharing. You know, we should arrange a real-life party one of these days, just so we can eat and drink until we pop.

That sounds as though it'll hit the spot very nicely. Is the recipe a state secret?
Actually, now you mention it, it says something for the people who gather here that, while we are always well-provisioned with drink, this is the first time (apart from Lili's chocolate) that anyone's mentioned food. Anyone else want to bring some eats?

I come bearing bacon and cheese oatcakes from the fair city of Stoke-on-Trent.

"I come bearing bacon and cheese oatcakes"

Y'know, saying this in front of someone with dietary restrictions is complete bloody sadism. I wonder if I could successfully kid myself that the oatmeal part of this would be so good for me it'd counter the heart-stopping rest of it . . .

I do like the sound of that. I have a feeling - a very strong feeling - that this could become a traditional villages dish.

For some reason it's spelled `chollah' over here, and I love it, particularly the little knot roll variations.
I have no intention at all of stopping you. *stands aside to let Lili pass, bows deeply*

Actually, it isn't, and I'd be glad to share. Unfortunately, the real trick to getting it to work is by soaking the turkey in tandoori paste for 24 hours and then putting it on a barbecue grill for another six to eight, and that requires the correct wood. I'm pretty sure that you don't have access to either honey mesquite or pecan wood, but I imagine that this would work well with apple. (I tried before with hickory, and almost had to throw away the turkey. Never again.)
