Xmas lunch

Our Xmas lunch was lovely.  The turkey we had won was delicious.  I cooked it slowly for 3 and a half hours at a low temp, with streaky bacon over the top and then foil over the top of that.  It was moist and lovely.

The turkey we won was jut 9lbs weight so just right for 3 of us.  I carved all one breast for Xmas day, and then we had the other side as cold meat with chips on Boxing Day.

 
We had the traditional vegetables to accompany our turkey.  Roast parsnips, carrots and potatoes, and brussel sprouts and cauliflower, sage and onion stuffing and redcurrant jelly.  Absolutely delicious.

Here I am serving up Xmas lunch with Neil’s sister.  For pudding we had traditional Xmas pudding, that I had won in the Xmas bazaar, and mince pies with cream.  And then we sat down to watch the Queen at 3pm.
