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.

Best of luck with the oven.

I sometimes roast one or sometimes two turkeys during the year. Some years I do not cook turkey at all and roast beef instead. It takes a little doing to get a turkey to come out moist and tender. Beginning with a good bird is a must. I drape mine with cheese cloth and baste with butter, stock and dry sherry, every 20-30 minutes or so. Unless I get a bit too drunk over the course of the afternoon, and compromise my judgement unduly, I usually receive no complaints.
