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.

Not that I'm trying to convert you, but a good quality turkey, properly cooked, is anything but dry. The problem is...most people have no idea how to cook one, and how simple that is. Plus, they often buy those frozen, processed, 20 lb. bricks piled in the bins for 59 cents a pound. Yes, they're very affordable. Yes, they're crap.

I only buy one turkey a year. I spend a bit more for a good, fresh, free range one. My turkeys always come out moist, and very flavorful.

Enjoy your chicken! Roast chicken is one of my favorite meals. :)

Ailz is very fond of chicken- so we eat quite a lot of it. Personally I prefer lamb- which is odd because that was my least favourite meat when I was a kid.
