Christmas dinner, am stuffed!!!!

Hi all the BFM cooked the starters and the mains, before taking a well earned rest b4 dessert.

For starters I did smoked and flaked salmon on toasted onion bagels with garlic and herb cream cheese, with a side salad of rocket lettuce,cucumber and cherry tomatoes, sautéed mushrooms, baby onions and leeks. To finish the dish I had scrambled eggs with caviar on top!!!!


This went down well, meanwhile for mains I was in charge of the meat. I cooked the remaining Galloway turkey after thawing for 24 hours and brining for 12 hours. I cooked it for 6 hours, the pork with cracklings for 3 hours and pigs in blankets and stuffing for an hour. I cooked the bacon with pine nuts and boiled sprouts. The ladies took care of roasties, potato Dauphinois, parsnips and carrots. I did a creamy pork and turkey jus.

Everyone loved it and now time to relax. We will use the leftovers tomorrow.


Must admit that this fine Norfolk Black from the Galloway farm was the most succulent and tasty turkey I have ever had. I know where I will be getting mine from in the future!!!! Cheers John and Thomas.

To all those people who are working or helping with the homeless or less fortunate a big up!!!!
