Early Christmas Dinner

Pre Christmas family dinner
 I cooked an early Christmas dinner for the whole family using all locally produced food stuffs. 

The mains consisted of Baked Ham and stuffing, sprouts, carrots and parsnips. The vegetables tasted better when freshly cooked as they don’t freeze well. We had mash potatoes and Dauphinoise potatoes cooking using the potatoes, cream and cheese. We had the tomato and basil soup for lunch. I used the turnips and soup mix to make a vegetable broth. The sponge was used for trifle. 
The cost of all the ingredients was very competitive and the vegetables were quite sweet,the kids loved them!!! Overall the range of local seasonal produce at TESCO is exceptional and great value.
