    what's everyone eating? :lol:

    A few of you may remember Stan's choice for Thanksgiving last year and we're doing something similar for Christmas this year :rofl: Call me crazy but it was actually good last time he did it. Anyways we've bought a turkey breast, cornish hens, and quail. He will de-bone them and than wrap them together. Oh and he's using bacon to help keep it from drying out :rofl: Should be an interesting meal and an interesting day trying to get it all done :haha:

    Vickie ... have you tried turning it upside down to cook? That way the top "breast" part will be cooking in the juices and help to keep the main parts you'll eat nice and moist

    It did look really good last year but i dont have a big oven anymore, so just doing a turkey crown, with the trimmings

    will that work though since we only have the turkey breast and it will be all de-boned and "stuffed" inside? will tell Stan though and see what he says. Although according to him bacon makes everything better :haha: :rofl:

    MO3 that is the basic idea but it would be way to much food for just us so Stan modified it :haha:

    Holly Stan has a pretty good recipe for New York style cheesecake if you want it? that is if I can get him to type it out :lol:

    the rest of our meal is pretty basic, some veggies, mashed potatoes, and home made rolls.

    As it's just me and OH for Christmas this year we're having pheasant with all the trimmings. I'm making mince pies and am considering making trifle too for afters/ Boxing day. We also have a nice selection of cheeses to have with biscuits. I know that my mum's bringing us up a stocking full of sweets and chocolates and I've got us some rum truffles for our stocking too so we'll inevitably be grazing on that through the day too, though not enough to spoil our dinner!!

    Thursday last week we had a big Christmas meal with friends just before a lot of them went home for Christmas. That was turkey, beef and pork with pigs in blankets, chestnut stuffing and a selection of vegetables, with Christmas pudding and brandy clotted cream for afters!! So we've already had a traditional Christmas dinner!!

    Beca :wave:
