Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Christmas presents received today. Leather jacket, oil/vinegar drizzler, chocolate cake book, 2 bots of perfume, evening bag and panettone.

My most expensive present - but will only get this in March, will be going for a 5 full day cake decorating course, hence the voucher that Pat made.

Sorry for this belated post. Well it is still Christmas day here, but I have been cooking since 0800 this morning to get lunch ready by 1430 and I did... my timing was perfect.

The following pictures are what I cooked today.

Turkey with chestnut and cranberry stuffing before going into oven


Cranberry sauce, pigs in blanket and gravy

Roast potatoes, parsnips and brussel sprouts

Lovely golden brown turkey after 4 hours roasting

This was how my plated looked after being plated up,... unfortunately was too tired to eat.

Made my cake 3 weeks ago to let it mature and fed with brandy

Cake which I covered and dd decorated yesterday
