    Christmas dinner plans

    I just got 2kg of organic 3 week dry-aged T-bone joint (Added bonus - got 25% price reduction at the till, courtesy of a today-only offer). I'll roast it, with potatoes and the usual trimmings. Christmas pud for afters, generously soaked in brandy (and I'll put some in the Christmas pud as well).

    Family event, but we've invited our (adopted) weirdo "uncle". Seven adults in total. One 2-year old.

    What plans do you have for your dinner?
    Down with racism. Long live miscegenation!

    I'll be having my family round. Doing traditional. Maybe boring but we like it! Soup, prawn cocktail, turkey & all trimmings, cheesecake or trifle, cheese board then coffee :-)
    If you don't have anything nice to say, say it sarcastically

        Elating out. Just us. No family this year as we have just moved house and the place is still in chaos. Off to a local place for Lunch, a few drinks then stagger back home and get gently sozzled in front of the telly while stuffing our faces on chocolates.

                I used my £10 DWP Christmas bonus to buy an Aldi stuffed turkey joint with a streaky bacon lattice on it.

                We normally have goose or duck so turkey is actually a bit of a novelty for me. Hopefully the bacon lattice will keep it moist. I've got the goose fat for the roasties.

                We go for chocolate bombs as opposed to Christmas pudding. It's a similar look but more palletable for the children.

                  That'll be not enough soaking in brandy.

                    HWMBO was thinking about doing Guinea Fowl but we also like having lots of cold cuts for sandwiches etc so may go for a bigger bird. Usual trimmings etc.

                    He spotted some tomato juice with clam juice in it when we were in Partridge's today so we're going to have a battle of the bloody Mary's at some point - his recipe vs mine. He says I make a very good one so we'll see how his compares.

                    Picked up lots of mince pies as I'd eaten all the ones I got from Waitrose. Now on Sainsbury's all butter brandy ones and they are much nicer.
