Re: Christmas Dinner. Where? When? What?

Ours. The kids and their significant others and Mrs G's parents. Fuck knows what we're having as the eldest and the youngest are cooking starters and main and the middle one is doing the puds. I'm in charge of cheese and booze.

Re: Christmas Dinner. Where? When? What?

No Christmas here, but got tree up and downloaded A Christmas Carol with Alistair Simms. Mother in law and niece flying in from Japan. In effect 4 headstrong lasses and me. I'll be cooking. We'll have a nice Welsh lamb leg and all the trimmings. No pigs in blankets mind, but we'll have the rest of the shit and try to make merry..

Its the left over Turkeyathon...

Re: Christmas Dinner. Where? When? What?

I'm still struggling with the left over Wagyu beef on this side as well. I should have known 2.3 kg was gonna be too much for me and 3 lasses. Good job I cooked it rare, bought a meat thermometer this year, so heating it up and banging it in a crusty role with some horseradish sauce is not the worst leftovers I've ever eaten.

Bought a meat thermometer too

Had a decent free range turkey coming in at 7kg - suggested cooking time was 4hrs 10mins.  It was for the wife's family as we were taking it round to her sister's place - looking to feed 10 adults and 8 kids so wanted it to be proper

Never believe those suggested time so checked after 2hr 30 mins and it was done - over done if anything.  God knows what it would have been like if I'd followed the suggested cooking time......

You are what you repeatedly do. Excellence is not an event - it is a habit.

Re: Christmas Dinner. Where? When? What?

Loads of turkey and sausage meat stuffing left. Genuinely a little bit excited left over sandwiches for lunch.

Re: Christmas Dinner. Where? When? What?

Used one of those one use plastic turkey thermometers this year.  It was the best £1.50 I've ever spent.  Also went for an expensive farm bought turkey rather than an Asda special and it tasted of turkey, rather than of not much.

Also in...  get fresh sage leaves and cut them in half.  Lay the long strips of sage along your chipolata sausages and wrap in streaky bacon.  Glaze with some more sage finley chopped, sea salt and a healthy dose of maple syrup.  Make fucking loads of them or you'll have none left to server up when dinner finally arrives.

Apple pie, chocolates but no ale. I have her car today. Feel like one of those pythons after it's eaten a whole deer. Might not move again this shift.
All the males in her family eat like they may never get the chance to again. Weighed 180lb when we got married, around 215 these days. Do you think there's a link?

Re: Christmas Dinner. Where? When? What?

In you roll after your shift, shagged out. Plod upstairs, step out of your gear, leave it on the floor, don't bother to have a wash, just collapse into bed. She stirs and tries to start a conversation, still half asleep and not opening her eyes. 'Tough shift?'
You, by now seconds from the land of nod, face buried in pillow. 'mmmmm'.
'Enjoy the food?' she ventures, knowing that she's practically lost you for for the next few hours and she can still grab a couple more herself. No reply. Thirty seconds go by. Then you omit the most enormous fart without even stirring.

Thirty more seconds go by.

'I'll take that as a yes then'.

Another minute passes and you're both snoring.

Re: Christmas Dinner. Where? When? What?

Turkey is not a great meat, gets dry really easy.  We are going for 3 bird roast, ham and pork.

I prefer the pie and pickles on boxing day anyway.
