    We had Linda McC sausages (lots!) and also a chicken-style meat loaf thing made from a packet mix bought in Holland & Barrett, which was quite nice too. Two types of veggie stuffing and the usual veg. It was every bit as good as the whole turkey caboodle and seems a lot less hassle.
    :D I haven't bogged off yet, and I ain't no babe :D

  • I was going to do the usual Quorn Sunday Roast, covered in stuffing and then wellingtonised with pastry.

    Unfortunately Quorn Roasts seemed to be out at my local supermarket so I lined a loaf tin with pastry, made a tomato based mince with soya mince and onions, put a layer of sage and onion stuffing in the middle and had a sliceable pie.

    I'll probably do this again next year but I'll put something else in the middle as youngest not so keen on the stuffing.

    The non-veggies had chicken breast as Turkey was deemed too much bother just for the two of them :(

    Next year I must remember to buy cranberry sauce :)

    Glad you enjoyed it, kianicky, mine was yum too. Got to say - love your signature - quite why this idea that vegetarians eat fish is so persistant eludes me.

    Soubrette's Xmas dinner sounded great too - must try that one.

    Happy Xmas, everyone!
    Life is not a dress rehearsal.
  • Last year Mumsy was on chemo so couldn't stomach much let alone cook so we got a Chinese T/A on Chrimbo eve and rehated on the big day - seems to be a bit of a tradition now as this year Dad working nights so didn't get up till 5pm (he's off to work in a mo') so again rang mr ting last night. So for me veggie duck curry (made extra hot as they know I like it) with steamed rice and a large vodka and Ocean Spray cranberry and mango with Dr Who Special on the Sky + (not as good as the titanic one last year). am now stuffed but the ferrero rondnoir in the fridge (3 of us in the house - mum has the origina rocher, dad the white coconut things and me the dark ones - no arguments) are unlikely to see boxing day morning.
