NPG Office Christmas lunch - review

Let the happy cry ring out across the land - "Not quite as bad as last year!"...
NPG Christmas Lunch #1
Spuds were cooked well (totally un-crunchy, but we can't ask for miracles here), sausages tasted a little odd, turkey was dry and chewy (but turkey-ish), stuffing was burnt to a crisp and the peas and carrots were "out of a tin"-style (so Flyingpops would have been happy!)...appraisals around the table peaked in their positivity at "It's alright?" (from KP, with a shrug) and bottomed out with Renemie's "It's awful!"...but it was, at least, better than last year, as I said already...
NPG Christmas Lunch #2
Plenty of cheese left (!), so I had a bit of stilton and some smoked cheese (which were pretty good)...
NPG Christmas Lunch #5
...and got a wonderful moulded blue F-14 in the cracker, which I left on the table, abandoned along with everyone else's collected cracker wonderment (to be swept into the bin)...

Yes, it was free, but so is complaining. At least I got a kick-ass plastic lobster and a paper hat from the lunch!
