Welcome, welcome to the Last Minute Christmas Carnival of the Recipes, otherwise known as CotR Edition #122. We have many wonderful dishes for your Christmas cookery and beyond. To steal a phrase from Triticale the wheat guy, "Dom Eatimus, Eatamus" - which I gather loosely translates to "while we eat, let us eat". Amen!
