I thought I would call by and perhaps ask for some tips for Lunch on Christmas Day.
So here goes it will be myself and adult son for lunch unfortunately adult daughter is still not on talking terms to me but say no more I do not need extra stress at Christmas. My son wants lunch with me so it is all good.
I have got nice sized turkey crown, my son eats other meat but likes it all seasoned which I do not like much. So the meats need to be cooked, then there is tray of roasties and probably roast parsnips.
Then we get onto the sprouts and peas and maybe mashed potato plus our gravy.
Please bear in mind my son is fitness coach and is in the gym everyday so a huge meal is nothing to him he can burn that off so easily.
So I know I should not panic but I want the cooking to go well but I am trying to work out if I should get sons meats cooked Christmas Eve as I would rather cook the turkey crown Christmas Day. I always peel potatoes and sprouts on Christmas Eve so one job less to do. Oh I almost forgot the tray of stuffing has to be done as well if it is not my son will be asking for it.
I know people will say it is just the weekend roast but it is a bit more than that and trying to get everything cooked about the same time and serving up a
hot dinner is not so easy.
Any tips from others would be a help, I am off out in a minute but will look later to see if anybody has had any ideas
When I say tray of roasties that will probably mean two trays as my son will probably have seconds about 6 p.m.
My oven is not enormous and then there is the counter tops to dish everything out I do start to feel frazzled.
