I am not big on starting new discussions but this topic has exercised my thought recently.
I have been asked to my works Christmas meal - one at a restaurant/hotel. Its around £0 a head but when I got to see the menu I declined.
Now people think I am antisocial but I declined because the menu was awful. There was nothing on it I could eat. Even the Christmas turkey had to have some concoction put over it. The starters were full of things I would never eat in a million years. I thought it might be a ne off but it seems that all meals out now have these modern twists and differences.
What happened to the turkey with sage and onion stuffing , roasts, brussels and carrots with some nice meat gravy. More, what happened to a traditional Christmas pud, or even a cheese ( Cheddar or Stilton for me) and biscuits option?
My work ( as in management) put on a dinner in the canteen just before Christmas - one we get subsidised - and thats still traditional but hotels and resturants seem to have gone mad for anything but .....
I have a bigger problem than it just not being traditional. I get a lot of indigestion these days and I have found much of it is in the fancy sauces, trimmings and all manner of things "modern" in the shops. I have started ( late I know) to make my own food - plain and simple. But Christmas dinner has always been something to look for ward to, traditional and not adulterated!
Is this twist on a theme stuff with all manner of things brought in from elsewhere common now or just where I live? Am I doomed to be forever at home for Christmas with no parties to go to?
