SATURDAY: family christmas eve dinner
SUNDAY: christmas turkey & all the fixins
MONDAY: leftovers
TUESDAY: leftovers
WEDNESDAY: family dinner
THURSDAY: leftovers

oh yes, this is it: the meal we’ve been waiting for all month. or since thanksgiving even. i basically make the exact same meal for christmas as i do for thanksgiving, except i stuff and roast two turkey breasts, cos: leftovers; i don’t want to cook again till new year. or more specifically, i don’t want to have to cook again till new year. my kids so wonderfully got me a pasta maker for christmas and i’m dead excited to make some!!!

anyway, we roasted one stuffed turkey boob on christmas day and then i cooked the second on boxing day morning. also, i switched up the salad this year: cookie and kate’s arugula, dried cherry and wild rice salad with a zippy lemon dressing (altho i made it sans rice cos dinner would be filling enough) and it was a perfect accompaniment! also made bbc food’s gingerbread puddings with ginger wine and brandy sauce for dessert instead of the pies. i realised too late that i could have/should have made the puddings a day ahead and then broiled them with the sauce after dinner. as it was we had dessert at like 10pm which was way too late. altho, tasty as heck!!
