An advent calendar of sorts Day 18. Turkey and all the trimmings

Beef Wellington
Beef Wellington. Yule 2010

So what do you have with your Christmas turkey? In fact, do you have turkey at all? We'll be having roast beef for our Yule dinner, with Yorkshire puddings and lots of horseradish sauce and roast potatoes and there have to be parsnips. I might do a few sprouts, because it's traditional, isn't it? And we'll end up having bubble and squeak for breakfast on the twenty second to use up the leftovers.

Christmas Day itself we're going out for a curry - albeit quite a posh one - so we won't be doing turkey at all this holiday season. That means we'll miss out on the stuffing, the chipolatas and the cranberry sauce. And does anyone still eat bread sauce?

Hi Anne .. love the thought of Roast Beef on the 21st .. and bubble and squeak = delicious! Bread sauce - most definitely .. and always at other times of the year too ...

Have a lovely seasonal time .. Hilary

We often have goose and turkey, sometimes one within the other, but usually cooked separately. There can be up to fifteen around for lunch, so a single bird is not enough.

We always have turkey and ham, no bread sauce though. Have a great Christmas m'deario. x

We've never had turkey, we always had chicken, but last year we changed to a leg of lamb, cooked with potatoes round it in lovely onion gravy. We'll have the same this year too as we really liked it.
