Re: What was Christmas Dinner?

Oh, forgot to add that my sil made the cookies.  They're basically meringues filled with chocolate chips - in the shape of a kiss with the chips inside.  I thought they were too sweet . . . I make meringue cookies by adding a little ground hazelnut flour or almond flour and cocoa powder (finest quality) fill with chunks of good chocolate if desired.

Re: What was Christmas Dinner?

I believe we will have one more day of turkey tomorrow and hopefully that will be us done too, and as much as I enjoy it, I think I will be quite glad to see the back of it for a while....! It was turkey pasties on the menu for us today!

Re: What was Christmas Dinner?

It was cold and raining in Sydney (wettest christmas day since the 1940s) so I think anyone who'd decided on the traditional hot lunch would have been very happy. We went to family for lunch and dinner/leftovers. Had the usual cold ham, hot turkey, roasted veg and salads. Followed by pavlova and fruit. Dinner was the same plus the rest of the extended families' leftovers too. And then everyone went home with someone else's leftovers.

Re: What was Christmas Dinner?

A traditional British Christmas dinner will always include a roast bird, and or another roast meat. Traditionally Roast Goose was the preferred Christmas food in Britain until the new-fangled Turkey arrived from America in the 16th century.
