Oh I was pleased with my turkey! I cooked Christmas Dinner for three yesterday and it was a lot of work but SO worth it. Turkey was yummy (especially the stuffing) and I did all the trimmings. As soon as I get out of bed I’ll be rustling up some bubble and squeak with all the leftover veggies and making Roland Young Rissoles (as per tradition) with the leftover turkey. Mmm – how I do love my leftovers!
We had loads of fun. Here is a pic of me and Corinna by my mini Christmas tree (like my nan, I kept my pinny on ALL DAY)
Vic invented a new dance:
And we had Linzer Augen and Vanillekipfert made by Corinna and some mince pies made with Vincent’s pastry:
Ah, what a lovely day.
Recipe from: A Treasury of Great Recipes. I did follow Delia’s timings for the turkey rather than Vincent’s but if I make this again I’m going to time it as per the great man. I chickened out of making the gravy from the giblets too. If I have a helper next year I might attempt it. A bit too much to juggle on my lonesome…
