Coming Up To Christmas [Dec. 21st, 2010|04:21 pm]
Tony Grist
Whilst sweeping the snow off the car I got into a snowball fight with a couple of passing lads. The snow is powdery- and not so good for making snowballs with.  They scored a couple of hits. I scored one. 

Sainsbury's was full of shoppers. The prices they charge for turkey- just because it's Christmas and they can- are shocking. We bought a large chicken instead.  To be honest I think turkey is dull. And dry. Very dry.

There's still a remote chance that we'll be cooking our chicken in our spanking new oven (rather than our old portable one.) We tried the new oven for the first time last night and it blew the circuit twice. I've just had a call from Adnan to say the company that supplied it will be sending someone round on Thursday to see if it can be fixed.

I definitely prefer chicken to turkey as well, though both are inferior to a nice goose or - as is the tradition in my family - a duck. In Denmark Christmas dinner seems to be a choice between roast duck and roast pork, and I've never much liked roast port... Both, though, are served with regular boiled potatoes, small boiled potatoes covered in caramel, braised red cabbage and occasionally also something sweet and something sour. Oh, and gallons of gravy!

(I would prefer roast potatoes to the boiled ones, though... But don't tell my dad!)

Very different.

I love roast potatoes. I cook them in the roasting pan along with the meat.
