Christmas is here soon and have you decided what to cook yet?

For us, we just finished our late Christmas shopping and nailed down the basics.

Our menu includes;

Starters: Vegetarian spring rolls

Main & Side Dish: Honey Glazed Turkey with cheese topped roasted potatoes, courgettes, tomatoes and pesto gratin.Hubby got some Yorkshire pudding just in case…

Back-up main: Embutido, a Filipino mince pork dish with vienna sausages, sweet pickles, raisins and spices.

Desserts: Christmas Pudding, Vanilla Ice cream and Custard.

Drinks: Red wine; someone here likes St Emilion (Diablo is held as backup), our guest love Baileys and the kids have Apple juice. I did not forget mine – we have a box of Coca Cola in the fridge.

Nothing too fancy this year.

Vegetarian spring roll. It’s always different everytime I make my springrolls – i have difficulty following instructions. 😛

This is my chicken a couple of years back. I am using the same recipe but will marinate the turkey for a day first then stuff it with some really nice things.

Stuffed potatoes covered with cheese! It will be accompanied by Courgettes- Pesto gratin. Yum yum!

And we will finish with the traditional Christmas pudding.

We just got ours from Sainsburys but we do love ours with custard and vanilla ice cream.

Hopefully, the glaze will be perfect this year for a photo finish. That chicken in 2007 is selling rather well as a stock photo. 😀

Anyway, I hope that you got your Christmas dinner sorted out as well as ingredients for the left over later.  Have a great Christmas and looking forward to a wonderful New Year!
