Seasonal meal!
by Creusebear • Fri 21 Dec 2018 21:15

(No - I'm not using the C word after last time) :?
So two questions:
1. Do you have a seasonal/celebratory meal on the 25th or the 24th?
2. What's on the menu?
PS Happy Yule!

In the end we went for the evening meal on the 24th. A traditional roast chicken from a local farm (best I have ever tasted!) stuffed with herbs from the garden and plenty of seasoning and garlic, roast potatoes (which I haven't attempted here before - brought some Maris Pipers with us) green beans in butter and a separate stuffing based on a mix from home with added sausage meat, onion and and egg. Starter was wild smoked salmon and pud wasn't needed 'cos we woz stuffed! Evening watching Netflix in front of the fire, nibbling on chocs- bliss!
That means today - which has been a gorgeous day, was a lazy one of presents, walks in the sunshine and leftovers - double bliss!
Hoping everyone had a Happy Christmas in whichever form.

we traditionally have an indian takeaway xmas eve, as the family arrives at our house in kent.
Xmas day is never turkey as we nearly all hate it !
this year chateaubriand last year a Mexican including big hats and fake moustaches for all.
As we bought a house in Crozant this year we spent new year there enjoying some lovely sunshine and dry long walks, rather than grey skies and mud back in England.
