    I had Turkey!!! For the first time on xmas!!!

    Instead of having dinner at home we had dinner at my uncles and their xmas tradition is Turkey. So in my 23 years I have found that Turkey is worse then rohypnol, I was so sleepy after dinner!!!! I think the wine may have had an effect too!

    btw, for xmas dinner we have my mums homemade Cannelloni (Which is amazing!!!), nonnas recipe (Italian Family!)

    lol, it was nice, if a bit dry. I really enjoyed pigs in a blanket and the roasted root veg. But I prefere my mums Cannelloni tbh, it's just too amazing to describe.

    Have had Turkey before just not for xmas day dinner. Not sheltered, our family does xmas dinner in a different way.

    Its quite amusing when shopping on the 23rd- everyone fighting over veg and turkeys, all we need is mozzerella, cannelloni pasta, tins of toms, spinich, mince etc.... Basically the stuff left ont he shelves! Try it one day, i'll even pm you a recipe passed down from my italian grandmother if you want.

    i had chicken kiev and roast potatoes for my dinner

    i live in traditional household

    Si, per piacere, reguardando la ricetta per i cannelloni.
    In verita , secondo me, che una cosa diversa !!

    Turkeys being so horrid is probably the reason we only eat them once a year..!!!

    Ringraziarla, esso' s piacevole alle bevande corrette o continuerò la fabbricazione dello Stesso errore. Lei è dall'Italia, o l'è la sua famiglia?

    -yes I am using a translator because it is late and too much wine makes thinking difficult! :oops:

    Thank you, it' s nice to be corrected or I will carry on making the Same mistake. Are you from Italy, or is it your family?

    And Bevande shouldnt be there. What has drinks got anything to do with it? Silly Translator! '...piacevole di essere corrette...' Is the correct way.

    :?

    theres nothing different in turkey than any other meat to make u sleepy. No ingredient in it makes u sleepy. Its just the blood going from ur head to your gut to help digest, tiring you out

    -Took alot of thought. Your italian is amazing. Considering you lived there for 3 years along time ago. I only ever get to practise when I speak to my dad or on the phone to nonna or zia.So not so good!

    It's quite strange as most cookbooks and restaurants have ricotta in the cannelloni while we dont (Cant stand the stuff anyway!) so you will be getting a ricottas free recipe.

    Does it not depend on the type of Canneloni though?

    I find Ricotta too heavy, its ok, but just to filling...



    Feel free to send as many recipes to me as you want ;-) :whistling:

    Looking forwards to the recipe. I cook pasta well!( It took me about 5 years to get it right after coming back to the UK - different water and rubbish pasta)! Hope that you get some time to stay in Italia with your family. We absolutely love the country. My sons, now men, were very happy there as kids and had impeccable N Italian accents, but cannot speak even one word of the language now despite being fluent when little!!

    Ricotta in cannelloni?? :w00t:
