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.
