Le Mee: Xmas dinner on 23rd

Comments (6) France, Le Mee, Travel

Before the big ultra-extended family dinner on the 24th,
we had a small family dinner at Clem’s grandparents’ house,
where his dad Didier prepared most of the food by himself.

We opened pressies before dinner.
I got a lovely silver necklace from Clem’s mum,
a bunch of French kids’ storybooks from France,
a top from Flore,
and a scarf from his grandparents   :xlaughing:

I think that was the night i ate the MOST here in France.
(The occasion i ate the most was when i threw up in my own mouth afterward :p)
At one point i physically couldn’t swallow anymore.
You know? When you’re so full that you’re chewing and chewing but you just can’t seem to make yourself swallow.
Clem saw my face and said, “If you can’t finish it, leave it!”

But i’m Chinese yo.
And Chinese people don’t usually leave food on the plate…
it’d be rude!

I think his family are astonished at my appetite,
and he told me his grannie and dad wondered where i put it all.

>.<

I was just allowing myself to pig out,
and then religiously start gym and yoga in January.

 :xshy:

… which is in 3 days time.

 :xsurprised:

    FYI, here’s an interesting article on foie gras: The Physiology of Foie: Why Foie Gras is Not Unethical…

  6. […] It seems customary to open all our presents BEFORE dinner in France, just like we did for dinner the night before. […]
