Re: What's for Christmas Dinner?

Turduckin, and mashed potatoes, and of course Brussel Sprouts!! Turduckin from Rouses, LOL Heck I grew up on Brussel Sprouts ! They were one of the good growers in the PNW, so we ate them a lot! My old daddy even had them on the fish boats he owned cus he loved them !! So I sorta learned to like them !! The turduckin is a Louisiana invention !! We have sorta learned to love them also !!

Re: What's for Christmas Dinner?

Late fall is Brussel Sprout season around here, and I eat tons of them. I would certainly only eat the fresh ones, but they are excellent. I never had a Brussel Sprout in my life until my late 30's, so I never learned to hate them as a kid.

We are also having Pot Roast and Sweet Potato Pie.

Re: What's for Christmas Dinner?

My wife is roasting a beef. I want both gravy and Yorkshire Pudding. I don't think there will be enough drippings for both. Today I bought some ox tail which I plan to roast tomorrow morning, use those drippings to make my pudding, then boil the ox tail into a stock to use in making gravy from the roast beef drippings. How's that for a plan?

Re: What's for Christmas Dinner?

Down in Chinatown it isn't Christmas, it's just another Wednesday. I go down there and grab a piece of BBQ pork and a chopped duck. So easy and always delicious.

Brussels sprouts are always on the banned list. YUK ! Napa cabbage in oyster sauce is OK though.

Re: What's for Christmas Dinner?

How come they are called Brussel Sprouts everywhere _except_ - guess where?
Correct - in the Belgian capital!

Re: What's for Christmas Dinner?

Sorry folks! Nothing can beat a Texas-size Angus rib-eye steak cooked to perfection; anytime is the perfect time! So tasty, juicy and tender, you can practically eat it almost raw. Yummm!

Cabbage from Brussels, as in (as you nibble her ear lobe) "mon petit choux choux". Ah zee French, they have such a way with words.

Hmm. Is there an other alternative name for it in Belgian French?
They were a part of an exceptional dinner that the B.R.Y.C. hosted as a part of the 1991 ICCY rally.
The hosts put up a blank stare at the mention of the English word but after some confusion replied with a totally different name that did not contain the word Brussel, neither in French or English version. It meant essentially nothing to us and we unfortunately forgot it.

Tasty vegetable if you ask me. Just don't overcook it. Does not keep well aboard without refrigeration though.

I toss mine in Lardons and garlic and finished in reduced beef stock. The kids always loved them. I prefer them cold the next day

Re: What's for Christmas Dinner?

Living as I do on the wrong end of the world - it's not the a**e end, but we can see it from here....the seasons and temperatures are a bit topsy turvy.

Being a former British colony we still tend to get stuck with the roast turkey, roast ham, roast vegetables, gravy, brussels sprouts and then hot Christmas Pudd for afters.

This year it was just too damn hot, so my sis and I (the cooks) barred the hot food.

We had fresh caught praws and oysters (straight off the boats the day before), then pre-cooked turkey breast, sliced, cold ham, potato salad and green salad, and chilled bubbly to wash it all down.

Chilled pavlova with cream and ice-cream for dessert.

Baileys over ice with the after dinner nuts, muscatels and dried figs.

Still ate too damn much, though.... LOL

And although we were a "sprout free zone" we normally do them roasted in the pan with the turkey. They are MUCH better roasted than simply boiled.
