Xmas Dinner this year?

edited December 2010 in Not Sports Related
What is your main course this Saturday?

For us - Pheasant (not decided how to cook it yet - roasted I guess) & homemade Christmas Cake - not a big Turkey fan.

    Vegetarians my wife and I so, everything everybody else has except the meat.
    I dont feel the need to substitute the meat course although my sister will insist on making something with goats cheese, lentils, squash, pulses, filo pastry, nuts.......
    To be honest the food doesn't excite me much, I can have a plate full of roasted vegetables any day of the year. I don’t even like Christmas pudding
    Its just nice to sit down with all my extended family and have a meal together.

    Then off to the MCG for boxing day, to put the bloody convicts back in there place after Perth!

    Sounds pretty good to me. We're going with vanilla panna cotta with Fruits of Forest reduced with Creme de Cassis served with crunchy biscuit things. 5 yr old Xmas pud. which is hopefully still OK. No starters, probably no meat at all, just loads of roasted veg. and filo parcel wotsits stuffed with ? walnut, spinach and goats cheese. Got to fit some chestnuts in somewhere as well. Homemade soups, cheeses, fruit and oceans of home baked bread. A new brand of gin to try and Fever Tree's (brilliant new find!) tonic water. Oh and quite a few Reds and whisky barrel matured Innis and Gunns. Plus a very special Andersens port. A Very Merry Christmas to you all.

    Shortage on frozen turkeys!

    Went to Asda last night, completely sold out, didn't know if they would get any more before Christmas. Tesco's only had small/medium size birds and only about 15 left, so we had to get a medium one much to my wife's disgust. I can take it or leave it, but she loves a turkey, we end up eating it for a week!

    She was actually in a state of panic in Asda's!

    Get yourself to your local butchers and get one the free range bronze fat bstd turkeys from yuor local farm are quality none of taht frozen asda or tesco bollx
  • Options
    Vegetarian too, but it will be the (quite boring but OK) Quorn roast with all the usual trimmings. However the sprouts will be tossed in olive oil and balsamic, and roasted with pine nuts added near the end.
  • Options
    Beef and all the bits

    If the old man can get his car through the snow, up & over the steepest hill in Worcestershire and down the farm track to 'Happy Meats', this afternoon, we're having a leg of Jacobs Sheep Lamb which imo is the best tasting Lamb you can get. If not, it'll be whatever we can get last minute from the local butchers or supermarket, but not the £100 rib of beef I saw in Sainsburys the other day.

    Get yourself to Bexley Village on a Friday, you should easily get yourself a big bird.

    In Mexico at the moment... planing to go surfing in santa hats then a turkey and crandberry sandwhich from the deli on the beach, washed down with copius amounts of Pacific & Corona.

    Will be a strange one... not been home for Christmas since December 2006. Only time of year I get homesick. Previous 3 years been in Canada so at least it feels like Christmas. Wouldn't know it was Christmas down here now.
