Christmas Eve Ulster Fry Up

Mon 24 Dec, 2007 at 1:32 pm 5 comments

For the last however many years it has been traditional to have an Ulster fry on Christmas Eve. Usually it is fried up by the expert hand of Mrs Boyd of Coleraine. Last year Jen had her first experience of a Coleraine Ulster fry and two years back we introduced the tradition to Jen’s family in Ontario. They love it! So this year we had another Ulster fry. It looks set to be a fixture on the Ontario and the Coleraine Christmas tradition.

Sadly there is no Mrs Boyd to make it nor is there an Ormeau bakery to bake the bread. So Jen made the breads (soda, potato and pancake) and I did the frying

As you can see I am hard at work! and look at that lovely soda bread!

    Looking good in the apron!
    Well, you were sadly missed for the traditional Coleraine fry up chez boyds. It was a quieter affair than usual but you were much talked of all the same!

    Chat soon I hope

    By the way Jen,

    Mum is amazed at your baking skills and the only comment she made on the photo was how fantastic the sodas looked!

    Hope all is well with you? Post an up to date pic soon so we can monitor progress!

    Lots of love
