mrdaff, treat yourself to a halogen oven. you can cook a full chicken, plus many other things. have never used my main oven since getting mine.

Her,m Milady Hayley surely not, I would have thought that some one of your illustrious position would have had "Faggots" with the said Mushy Peas, ( Or Grey Farters as My grandma used to call them) :-D :-D :-D :-D ;-)

Stray, sshhhh ! Anyway, after the washer, the fridge, freezer, microwave and cooker all went, too :-|
All replaced except cooker - got a small m/wave sized one instead; was thinking of an Ostrich leg for 'the day', but it won't fit :-D


StrayKitten Report 13 Dec 2012 11:05

i do hope your not cooking MrDaff, i mean the trouble you had with the washer, you should stay clear of the oven, its burny hot lol,


MrDaff Report 13 Dec 2012 10:42

It's a 'family gathering' this year, so Turkey, Duck, Pork, Gammon, Boar and Reindeer on the menu - could be gastronomic mayhem ! :-D


Jean Report 13 Dec 2012 00:07

have a big leg of a sheep and a nice peice of cow in the freezer. will ask the other 3 diners to choose what they would like. i like pig, but others they wouldnt know the difference if it was served up, with a bit a gravy on it.

We won't be spending Christmas in the desert this year (thank God) so no roast camel for us - we'll be having a traditional roast turkey dinner in the UK - yay, whoop whoop!!!!! :-D

I was contemplating lamb, but, Mr Daff you've tickled my tastebuds.
I often get wild boar & venison offal from a local stallholder - I may throw caution to the wind and see what he has in the way of joints tomorrow :-D


LadyScozz Report 11 Dec 2012 23:43

Yes, buffalo & crocodile, from the local butcher :-) too difficult to catch ourselves

Ooh! I love venison casserole! Never tried roast venison, though, and the only wild boar I've tried was in Corsica - again in a casserole.


Jane Report 11 Dec 2012 21:44

Hi Mr Daff.Lovely to see you here.
It will be the blooming Turkey AGAIN.Like Muffy I am not allowed to suggest anything other.If it was my choice it would be a lovely tender joint of Beef.....Not sure about a haunch of Wild Boar or the Red Nosed Venison,although we do like Venison in Red Wine Casserole :-D


Kay???? Report 11 Dec 2012 21:41

Kitty ~~~~~~~~ you will be having crispy singed turkey then..

:-D :-D


ChrisofWessex Report 11 Dec 2012 21:37

Chrismas Eve - home cooked gammon with all the little cloves in a fancy pattern. Always had goose up to last year when we went for duck and by unaminous vote - duck this year.

The price of goose is disgusting this year - why the leap in price? Mind you they only lay once a year so perhaps something to do with cold wet weather.


StrayKitten Report 11 Dec 2012 21:31

baby S will be dining on iceland best chicken nuggets ;-)
