IT WAS EVERYTHING!!
Each year I look forward to our collaborative efforts in the kitchen. When we sit down to our Christmas dinner, conversation ceases and is replaced with yummy noises – just what a Chef wants to hear!
First, let’s have a dinner breakdown
Turkey for two
Homemade stuffing (my Mom’s recipe)
Ham with a mustard seed glaze
Carrots and parsnips with a honey glaze (SO good!)
Beautifully golden roast potatoes
Potatoe gratin (Himself’s Mam’s recipe) ^ this is it pre cooked obviously, but we’d gobbled it up before I realised I had forgotten to get a snap when it was taken out of the oven! Rest assured it goes golden brown on top and is delicious!
The gravy – oh the gravy, every year I make it with red wine and wonder why I don’t do it that way each and EVERYtime I make gravy, it was amazing, so so good, I just can’t deal with it when the pot is empty!
Nom nom nom!
After a few hours of movie watching, we got stuck into the Christmas pudding to finish off a splendid day
With custard of course!
What movies did we end up watching?
The firm favourites and it was lovely seeing them all again!
