I posted those recipes here last year, so I thought I would remind you of them, just in case you are looking for those recipes. I am cooking a pre-stuffed turkey for the first time this year. Never bought one of those before, it's a Butterball one as well, gone all out, as I normally get a "utility" turkey, you know the one with a part missing from it!! If the part missing is a wing or a leg, its no big deal to us, as no one is that keen on them. One of the first things to disappear from the turkey are the bacon rolls I attach to turkey using toothpicks. There are never any of those left, as everyone loves them. Plus it keeps the breast nice and moist.
I generally smear a pile of butter also under the skin of the turkey just to make doubly sure it's nice and moist. We're also having the bread sauce, a can of Ocean Spray Cranberry Jelly, I don't like the whole fruit one. We are having brussel sprouts (yuck!!), mashed carrots and turnip (yummy), mashed potatoes, and I have a bag of baby potatoes that I froze from the garden. Of course we'll have gravy as well, and I was thinking of baking a ham as well.......but not sure about that.
Pudding, is some sort of dulce de leche cream pie I bought, along with a key lime pie again I bought it, and either a cheesecake or a trifle which I'll make. Not sure yet. Then by the time we have eaten all that, we will waddle over to the sofa; I always wear elasticated pants, just so there is plenty of room to expand. Some of us will fall asleep, while the others will play on the Wii.........
We eat around 2pm, and we always listen to the Queen's speach to see what she has to say for herself.
