Iím home so itís time to pop the cork on the champagne 🍾
I shouldn't have moaned as I know I'm fortunate in so many ways but it's been right pain in the backside this covid malarkey. Right, grumpiness over! You enjoy your champagne, I'm cooking the buffet, if you can call piling stuff into the oven cooking! I'm going to go for the donuts I reckon it's the dipping sauce that's the must be defrosted part of it all and the donuts themselves will likely be fine in the oven.

We bought two turkey crowns in November and froze them. Normally keep one, but thought sod it and defrosted it. Roasted it this morning, so we had turkey and stuffing butties for tea. Got veges for tomorrow.

I really wanted to make gingerbread men but haven't yet as we can only eat so much. Think I will do them tomorrow though! Will update if I do 😷

Great idea, my mother in law always used to do a full turkey dinner for new years day, followed by flan with a cold custard and fruit, you know the sponge ones you can buy...anyway DH now expects a roast on New year's day so I've got some sausages ready for a Toad in the Hole as that's a good enough substitute and it's DS most favourite meal so both will be happy.

Weíre having roast porcetta tomorrow, any excuse for a roast in this house!

Back to tonight, our dinner was absolutely delicious. If you missed the earlier description, itís pan-fried partridge with creamed leeks, potato rosti, red wine jus and crumbled black pudding.




Mark really outdid himself tonight!
Happy New Year everyone - I hope 2021 is a lovely one for all of us and a vast improvement on this year!

Agreed! What an absolute nightmare. We were just discussing the logistics of testing at college. The Principal sent an email earlier about it. Are they just tested the once?
Well we are dressed up and pretending weíre out out! Having cocktails and karaoke!
I pity our neighbours (who have Covid btw 😳 ) we feel like weíre in a game of chess here 😳
They said to crack on!

There's been a disaster! I have also fallen foul of M&S party food not being able to be cooked from frozen. I was feeling quite sheepish until I saw you had suffered the same fate Abby

I checked yesterday to see if the party food could be cooked from frozen, the box I checked said yes, I thought if one thing could then they'd all be the same... Oh well, Nik is currently on the phone to the Chinese and we'll have the buffet things tomorrow. I'm v. disappointed I've been looking forward to this for weeks and had to go to several different food halls in search of all the bits and pieces I wanted.

I decided against the doughnuts, mainly because the box was too big for the freezer! Do let us know how they turn out Abby.

Tara, I have been drooling all afternoon thinking about your dinner. It looks like something from a Signature restaurant. How did Mark do the creamed leeks?

I am on the day shift tomorrow so I doubt I'll make it to midnight. Happy New Year when it arrives everyone xxx

Having an epic catch up on all the festive food, Iím not sure what is going on with everyone in this house but there is not much cooking and eating going on! I have a few food photos to add but really not that many...Iíll start with the most inventive meals so far which really are Coletteís ideas...



Bacon, Brie and cranberry croissant concoctions with a mixture of drinks for Christmas breakfast.



Prawn Cocktail and Melon boats for our starters...sorry forgot to take a photo of our turkey dinner-this is why I donít do food reports



Several hours later and the next few days...Christmas trifle



Christmas mocktails and cocktails made by my SIL, I love her homemade labels too and her dedication to drinking so she had all the empty bottles ready to make these for the family for the takeaway tipples



Smoked Salmon stacks were fab even without the dill and avocado...the girls had the pancakes covered in Nutella. I also sampled a few with butter and clementine curd, thanks Colette Iíll be using this recipe again

I donít do Brussels sprouts but thought I needed to do something with this festive looking palm tree...





I absolutely loved them and even had them the next day with some chestnuts I had roasted-I am now a lover not a hater



Salted Caramel hot chocolate and croissant.


Tonight will be a mixture of nibbles and some fizz.



HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL

That all looks so delicious! Which sprouts recipe did you use? I like the sound of adding chestnuts. Your glassware collection could rival Abby's!

So tonight is party food night! I think I went a bit overboard seeing as thereís only 4 of us but we can always eat any leftovers tomorrow for lunch.
Itís all very beige and nothing like the wonderful dinner MrsSilverStar is having but it was quick and easy and who doesnít love a duck spring roll 😂





Happy New Year everyone 🍸🥂🍹🎉

Honestly he is such a nightmare at times! We have recently had the kitchen done so all food was kept in boxes on the floor of the living room. One of the kids didnít seal up the goodies box one night and the next morning we came down to him looking like he had eaten 2 small children 😆. He had managed half a French stick, another packet of cream crackers, a family sized box of Oreos, 2 big bags (with mini bags inside) of Party Rings, 4 bread rolls, a couple of crumpets and a brand new bag (that I had meticulously been saving) of the hazelnut chocolate M&Ms that you can only buy in the US 😡. He was VERY ill after that! You would have thought heíd learned his lesson, but no!
