Food Glorious Food -JYC 18

For those of you who don't know me well, as far as food is concerned I love it so long as I don't have to cook it, cooking and I have never really gelled if you know what I mean, it is something I do out of neccessity not pleasure.  Though I do enjoy baking and thankfully I do enjoy doing a good old Sunday roast, so Christmas Day is one day I am happy to don the apron and go for it!!  We use to have traditional, then one year one of the girls said "do we have to have turkey?"  and the answer was "no, what would you like?"  and it has been that way ever since. So around Nov time we have a chat as to what we would like and a decision is made.  This year we are having a lovely bit of brisket, cooked very slowly in the rayburn, yorkshire puds, roast veggies, sausagemeat stuffing with nuts, cranberries and onions and a good serving of gravy.  If there is any room left Christmas pud.  Amanda's quiches (to die for) for tea and that will be us done - oh and all the sausage rolls, crisps, and chocs, thrown in for good measure.  Will I be able to move to go to work in the evening?....... I doubt it very much. :) I forgot to say bacon butties for breakfast - I really do have some bad childhood eating habits, (prefer my veg raw as well!!!)

Stuffing in the making.

 Stuffing ready for the oven :)

  1. This sounds yummy! We still have turkey on Christmas Day - tried to do it differently one year, but it didn't work for us. We always have the lamb or pork on Boxing Day.

    Those mince pies look good!
