Found 25th Dec 2014
I couldn't make it till the end, I never get to the Cheese and Biscuits anyway but this year I was beaten well before.

No trifle, No Mince Pie and Cream, No Christmas Pudding, No Cheese and Biscuits. No Port and brandy, No Drambuie, No Cigar.

What were your Highs and Lows of your dinner?

Highs-
The Tesco finest Chablis was lovely
The Aldi Four Bird Roast was very nice (just dont look where the meat comes from or use the marmalade glaze)
My Roasties were Perfect.

Lows-
To Stuffed feel sick
Only managed to get a small pack of prawns today, so not enough prawns for prawn cocktail on a garlic mushroom. (thanks you thieving git )
To Stuffed cant drink
Forgot about Sprouts


Plus note Im playing with Boomer the Dino and he's Ace

Great, I've eaten a whole turkey, by installments, final sitting July ?

I've lost count over what I've actually drunk.

Highs: Very nice, had Sainsbury's Gammon joint and turkey crown.

Lows: To full to get drunk!

Forgot to buy pigs in blankets!

I would hate to be veggie this time of year.

Or on the wagon.

I may have second thoughts about the above tomorrow morning however.

I'd say I nailed the Turkey Crown, yes Turkey isn't always dry
I over goosed the roast tatties which was a bit of a shame.

Over all great day, pity I'm too tired to get tanked up or watch any Christmas tat on TV.

I'm more interested in were you plug in the joypad featured on the front of the tin

Well we never ever have turkey always beef or lamb, but we went fr turkey this year and everything just went to plan, was told best Xmas dinner I have made! so very chuffed, kids ate it all up so did well. although too stuffed for desert. and I had a few beers with dinner so I am ready for bed now!



Edited by: "haritori" 25th Dec 2014

Dinner was lovely actually! Had roast beef. Other half was in charge of the beef and I did the veggies and dessert. Turned out very nice considering I cooked 2 veggies never before attempted and they were edible!
Edit: Sorry op, even had a spare packet of prawns and a pack of pigs in blankets that I bought prior to the menu change.

It was great, I was the cook so have a slight bias. It was me, my three kids and husband. They had a turkey joint and honey glazed gammon, I had Quorn roast which I'd gazed with balsamic vinegar, mixed herbs, garlic and salt and pepper. The home made from scratch Yorkshires were yummy, I made the potatoes from scratch and they were great. Home made honey roast parnsips made for the first time, turned out rather well, even if I do say so myself.

Veggie pigs in blankets and meat pigs in blanket. A bottle of pink fizzy stuff and bucks fizz. Nice!

Hubbie is the only one who likes sprouts so he was made up with the extra special Asda ones.

None of us could manage dessert afterwards, I had a 6 month matured christmas pudding with double cream a bit later but I'm sooo stuffed.

Merry Christmas!

Yeah, grew them and everything. Should have said roasted them but this is enough of a correction.

The Quorn roast was only stared at by the seasoning, how long for i don't know.

I went to my Mums for dinner but I spoiled it by eating ham, pickled onions, doritos and sour cream and chive dip before I got there. It was her fault for not making dinner until 5.30


Oh and I ate a box of Toffifee too

Happy Christmas everyone

When I think about it I don't think i've eaten that much today. It's just the thought of all the food in the house that I could eat that's making me feel full. it could also be the Baileys X)

Have you had a good day?
