Christmas Lunch

Following tradition in the UK we had roast turkey for lunch today.  I always cook mine covered in streaky bacon, just like my Mother did, and stuffed with lemons to keep it moist.  We served it up with roast potatoes, roast parsnips and carrots cooked with cumin, cauliflower and brussel sprouts.  No one likes brussel sprouts much, but again it is traditional so we have to have them.

Here’s the turkey straight out of the oven.  I let it stand for a while before carving and dishing up.  Neil poured some champers, we had pink this year.

Here I am with a full plate of turkey dinner, a bit pink in the face but that’s what comes of standing over a hot stove.

We had the special Christmas table cloth out and the Christmas plates, but we missed out on crackers this year,  clean forgot.

Then came the Christmas pud.  What a strange tradition we have to pour brandy over a hot pudding and set fire to it, but has to be done!!

So altogether a lovely Christmas Lunch.  I hope yours was too.  Merry Christmas.
