I have never had gammon but i would think it should pair wonderfully with pineapple. We pair pineapple and ham all the time and it is delicious. We also have a form of tomato gravy with ham but I wouldn't call it tomato soup.

 

Ours is a tin of Heinz Tomato Soup, heated and popped into a gravy boat.  :D  Pineapple and gammon work just fine together, just with a stronger taste than ham once cooked. It's just that nowadays I enjoy my ham / gammon to be full on savoury rather than with the sweetness of pineapple.

Breaking news …. we have a new recipe being tried tomorrow!  It's a mushroom and brie puff pastry parcel, and the filling also has leeks, walnuts, lemon and thyme in it.  The filling looks delicious ...

That looks tasty!

Here's what our menu looks like: (what it actually is, I posted on the previous page) (I plan to take pictures of our dinner when we have it, on the 26th):

Made some mini sweetmince parcels this afternoon, so we can leave one for Santa. We'll also be leaving him a snickerdoodle cookie (I made a massive batch yesterday afternoon), and of course, we'll be leaving a carrot for Rudolf too! Santa will also be treated to a small measure of my home-made blackberry liqueur - lucky old soul! ;)

Speaking of Santa......Santa's reindeer have been "cleared" to enter the U.S. on Christmas Eve. Santa has certified that the reindeer have eaten nothing but hay, sugar plums, and gingerbread.

My neighbour made a chocolate ginger cake, a chocolate cake and a bunch of rocky roads for us! (As well as a Christmas cake, but I don't like those :P )
