What are you eating for xmas?

Postby baldy » Thu Dec 22, 2011 9:07 pm

Busy planning my xmas eating for the next couple of days. Got a redwoods turkey roll thing, not holding out much hope on it though.

To go with it going to make some punk rock chickpea gravy out of vegan with a vengeance. Looking at recipes for brussel sprout and chestnuts. Almost maybe some kind of stuffing.
Loads of mince pies with soya cream.

What is everyone else planning?

There is a tradition in the U.S. of Jews going out for Chinese food on xmas.

I'm atheist, but every year I tag along with a group of Baltimore Jewgans on xmas to a stellar Chinese restaurant called Mr. Chan's.

that's funny. i remember finding out about the Jewish Chinese Christmas tradition when i moved here from the UK in '76.

as for me. i saw the wife has a giant tofurky in the freezer. so if I've been "good," i guess i'll get some of that and various homemade fixings. but it'll be a quiet one as she has to work and i visited the family last weekend.

Baldy, you will certainly make us proud and no doubt gain a few kg's over the holiday.

This on Christmas Eve, chestnut risotto on Christmas Day, and gnocchi with chorizo and baby broad beans on Boxing Day.

Being neither a christian nor a capitalist, christmas is nothing to celebrate. Now the fact that the christian capitalists have declared it a holiday that I get paid double-time for working? That I am fairly fond of! :twisted:

^ awesome.

I do like celebrating whenever I can.
We are likely to get together with family and have Tofurkey. We always get Tofurkey.

No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."

I'm in the same position I bought one but haven't put in thought of what to have with it. Prob just loads of mashed tatties and gravy. Shloer to drink. Alpro chcolate desserts. Generally for over the holidays I've ordered a bunch of redwood stuff. Got hot dogs, chicken burgers, quarter pounders, mince etc. Having mince and tatties post workout the noo.

Oh aye, how's your cider coming along?

That is what I do most years and it never comes together so this year I have decided to take more charge. Linda Mc Cartney sausages, good gravy, loads of roasted veggies.
Some fancy chestnut and cranberry stuff from tescos. Going to also try the new trendy shredded brussel sprouts with chestnuts.
Then lots of desert options, been busy in the kitchen this afternoon making brownies, swedish glaze is in the freezer along with alpro custard and cream in the fridge.

Drink wise we have 10 litres of my home brew cider left (sampled it last week, its very strong and very fizzy but lasts a little dry) plus maybe a few cheeky soya milk white russians which I can pretend are for the protein content.

Amped for xmas.

One of those big chunks of cheatin' turkey, although to be honest I'd be happy with just veg as long as i get to eat lots.

My Mum makes a great nut roast which is always something to look forward to.

I'll probably make some sort of nut roast. Maybe a chestnut roast if I can find some chestnuts tomorrow. Plus the usual roast veg, brussel sprouts, stuffing, gravy etc.

For dessert probably a Christmas pudding, with cream or ice cream. I'll make some mince pies sometime as well.
