I can't work today due to noisy scaffolders (yay, they are going today), so I thought I better get on with sorting out the food for Christmas. I've only got 7 on Christmas Day so I think I might do a cockerel with stuffing and pigs in blankets, bread sauce, roast spuds, roast parsnips, a selection of veg and gravy. Then Christmas Pud or pavlova for pudding.
What will be your main meal of the festive season?

It sounds posher than it is. I mean I could tell you that I make my own honeycomb (have done in the past - too much phaff for me) but the truth of the matter is that I use Crunchie bars 😁
4 egg whites at room temp
16tbsp white sugar
1tsp white wine vinegar
loads of double cream whipped
3 - 4 Crunchie bars
Bar normal choc - I use dark
Fan oven - 100
Whip egg whites til thick, gradually add sugar making sure you can't feel any sugar granules. Mix in cornflour and vinegar. In oven for 50 - 60 minutes. I probably don't have to tell you this, but leave pav in oven to cool, just leave oven door on the jar. Remove pav when completely cool.
Batter the bejeezus out of 2 of the Crunchie bars in a freezer bag until dust and mix into the whipped cream. Slap on top of the pav. Batter the next 1-2 into something prettier and crumblier and use to decorate the top of the pav.
Melt bar of dark choc and drizzle over the top then put in fridge.
As I'm always on my own, I always keep it simple on Christmas Day.
I'll follow that with one of these
together with some brandy cream.
^^^ I always ensure that I've got plenty of choice of drinks available to go with Christmas lunch, Anne, but I often end up thinking that I'd rather save the booze until later.
If I've not drunk it by then though, I've got three bottles of this currently awaiting my attention
(it's gorgeous) but I might seek out a decent red to go with my meal instead. (Morrisons have a cracking Dão, which is sensibly priced).
