Boodle Fight – our little Christmas tradition

Boodle fight has been gaining popularity the past few years. It’s actually a military style of eating wherein food is piled up on top of banana leaves. No utensils are used, just your clean hands and the eating “ battle “ begins when the signal is given.

My family loves it! We always have a boodle fight on Christmas eve/day and my children always look forward to it. They get so excited planning what food they fancy and can’t wait to start when they see me laying the banana leaves on top of the table. Of course I still have to take pictures and that’s when they get more impatient. It’s not fun waiting when you can see all the food calling you. Talk about torture. Haha!

We always make it simple and if there’s anything they want that needs more time to make, I do it a day before. Otherwise, I multitask. So this was our spread last Christmas and it took us 3 days to finish ‘em all with the exception of the sweets which lingered in the fridge for more than a week.
