Tonight dinner will be a "finishing up" meal
Roast turkey thigh (Xmas bird had the back half removed with both thighs boned and rolled, plus 2 legs)
So roast turkey, with the last parsnip roasted, last of the leeks and purple sprouting.
Also the last apples from store, stewed for pud.

Back in the day when we made Christmas puddings we made 3, one for Easter sunday, one for mid-summer and one for the next Christmas.

Merry Christmas everyone - funnily enough we are having our leftover pork and cranberry stuffing tonight - it is still in the freezer in a sort of loaf shaped tin, so I plan to bake it in the oven and slice it like a meat loaf with cabbage, spuds and gravy!

Leftover goat etc. We finished our Xmas pork about a fortnight ago - made an excellent vindaloo. At least I don't think there's any left.

Hopefully tonight I'll get home not too late and have enough energy to cook what I bought on Sunday - beef stew, mash and sprouts (the latter from the garden, and I think I still have some of my own tatties, too). And then it'll be the same the next two nights!

It looks like pasta with everything for some time. I've an awful lot of pasta and an awful lot of tinned tomatoes dating back to the start of last year before I grew tomatoes.

Vegetable curry and rice. Both came out of the freeer as I need to make some space in there. I made the curry a few weeks ago using parsnips and leeks from the garden. Unusually, I'd also frozen some cooked rice at some point. Can't remember when. Tasted ok though.
