sometimes it really does work out cheaper and more convenient to eat out on christmas day! my bird will probably cost me around £50 too, plus the ham £20 then the ton of other stuff am buying in for the meal..

Used to always get a fresh turkey, v. expensive but I felt it was worth it...only once a year

Forgot to order one year and had to have a Tesco's frozen. Nobody noticed any difference, including me. Can't justify the difference in price when no difference in taste
