The Annual Celebratory lunch for Torrevieja Writers is set for 4 December; this is a Wednesday and by common consent, at a recent meeting, members decided to forgo writing and go straight to lunch!  The suggested subject for the day, winter, can be held over until the New Year or indeed be an inspiration for a piece on the weather right now!
The lunch will be at La Finca de Eduardo – on the road from Cabo Roig to San Miguel de Salinas – and cost will be 12.95€ per person for 3 courses, not including wine but there will be a Cava reception on arrival. The Christmas menu offers a good selection and there will be a vegetarian option.

Unfortunately we are not able to subsidise this this year due to higher costs for weekly meetings.  

Christmas Party Menu

To Start

Homemade soup of the day, served with warm rustic bread
Chef’s recipe chicken liver pate, served with red onion compot, winter leaves and olive oil crostini’s
Classic prawn cocktail, small Atlantic prawns bound in Marie rose sauce on a bed of crisp salad leaves, with brown bread (€2.50 Supplement)
Melon and Serrano ham, drizzled with pomegranate reduction

To Follow 

Traditional roasted Turkey, served with all the trimmings, and a rich roasting jus
Roasted Chicken breast, served with all the trimmings, and a rich roasting jus
Beef Lasagne, served with garlic bread
Fish of the day

To Finish

 Traditional Christmas pudding, served with brandy cream
Bread and butter pudding
Fresh fruit salad
Selection of ice creams

If you would like to come to this festive event, please get in touch, either in person at the next meeting or two, or by email, phone etc. Also please advise if you wish to bring a partner.
If you have not been to La Finca, you can check it out at their website -  and then click through for travel directions should you need them.
Our other holiday tradition has been the Secret Santa; in a recent meeting, members present agreed that they would like to continue the tradition and set December 18 for the exchange of gifts to cost no more than 3€; names will be selected at the previous meeting – ie: 11 December.
18 December will be the last meeting for 2013; the first one after Christmas will be on 8 January 2014. Happy Holidays to one and all!
