Oh, lucky you for knowing! I'm in limbo, as ever. OH dislikes chicken and eats turkey and duck on suffrance only - I love duck.
I'm forever searching for a substitute. He'd eat nut roast - I dislike it etc.. Last few years I've done beef stroganoff (fillet steak etc.); salmon en croute; roast pork with all trimmings. Oh, I forgot to say that he dislikes roast lamb because of the fat.
It might be roast pork again. Perthaps I could consider a ham joint - but they are often salty no matter how long you soak them & I keep salt very low (if any) because of his heart problems.
May be bangers & mash! Seriously - all suggestions welcome.
I usually take the easy way out and fill one of these
with one of these (or something similar)
possibly with some sprouts and/or roast potatoes and/or parsnips.
However I have been known to buy some 'carved from the bone' cooked turkey from Morrisons and, after warming it through in the oven, use it as the basis for a traditional Christmas turkey lunch (once again using a giant Yorkshire pud, plus veg and gravy to go with it).
This will be my 3rd Christmas with my daughter and her partner. The past 2 years we've had seafood...lobster thermidor and scallops au gratin. I'm in heaven. None of us care for turkey. On boxing day last year, my daughter's partner made beef Wellington for the first time...it was gorgeous. No idea what's on the menu this year...but it will be excellent.
Evening everyone. Mr Smow and I will be going to his parents for the full Turkey works..... it's their last Xmas in their house before they sell it in the Spring and so they want to have a good old traditional Christmas dinner. I'm not complaining - apart from liking turkey anyway it also means I don't have to cook it!
When I'm accompanying my veggie friend in veggie/vegan restaurants, I tend to go for mushroom dishes. Mushroom Wellington would make a good Christmas dish, I think:
(I note that it's currently on the menu of the the veggie pub up the road from me: https:/
I'm buying a leg of lamb which i'll debone and butterfly then i'll rub the inside with a marinade of olive oil, mint,rosemary some capers and anchovies and salt and pepper and a few chilli flakes, then I'll roll it back up and tie it and slow roast, I'm also doing Merguez pigs in blankets, sprouts cooked in butter and lardons, honey roast baby carrots and parsnips and 2 ton of roast potatoes, and some pork.
