Ordered the beef for our dinner yesterday. Only 2 ribs this year as there are only 2 of us. The cow (Brea) has been hanging for 15 days so far.
This will be accompanied by goose fat roasties, roasted carrots, brussies with bacon, and cheesy, creamed cauliflower.
Smoked ham joint also ordered for the New Year’s feast.
I’m sure there will be suitable wines for the feasting
Going for the trad turkey thus year. Going overboard on everything to go with it, need a good gravy this time round so going the whole hog by starting with bones. Looking for something other than pigs in blankets and want a decent bread sauce, bread stuffing and meat stuffing. Recipe books are out already.
Probably chicken, with a small ham joint, as there’s just the four of us, and tbh I don’t really care that much for turkey. Going to be doing pigs in blankets, good gravy, roast potatoes and some assorted veg.
We have my sister and her kids joining us for Christmas. I insist on the most traditional of Christmas dinners. Turkey, ham (traditional Irish smoked ham, none of that hideous gammon shite available in yer local Tesco/Asda/Waitrose etc) and spiced beef. All the trimmings are required, including bread sauce, bread stuffing and sausage stuffing. We don’t do Christmas Cake or Pudding as nobody likes them, so epic amounts of cheese and fruit and a massive Aussie style pavlova are served for dessert. I shall take myself off the wagon and expect to be a blithering wreck after two glasses of wine.
