Roast for one. I even cracked out the table.

Roast chicken breast with roast spuds, parsnip and sweet potato, stuffing and asparagus. Shot pre-gravy.

I know it's a bit late, but still....
Here are some shots of our Christmas dinner!  Unfortunately I didn't get to the bird before my dad got stuck in there with the knife, and he also managed to burn the stuffing but hey, it wouldn't be Christmas dinner if everything was perfect, would it?  Note the very smart (if not very green) move of using disposable roasting tins for everything.

Christmas Dinner on Easter Sunday.
To celebrate the "rebirth" of Christ - Ok, maybe not technically rebirth but certainly him coming back to life - we had your traditional Christmas dinner on Easter Sunday. There was even enough for turkey curry on Monday!

So, pictured is: turkey, stuffing, roast spuds, roast parsnips, broccoli, sprouts, new spuds, bacon (maybe hidden!), chipolatas and lashings of gravy! The only thing missing, I realised a few days later, was cranberry sauce :-( Oh well, it was still "lush"!

Cooked by Mrs Herman (mum) in Dorset.

P.S. There wasn't really turkey curry on Monday but Dad did get a leg for lunch!

My first roast chicken by Kat aged 25
I roasted a chixx0r! I used half a packet of butter like the dude in the book said to. I stuffed a lemon up its bum and nearly forgot to add the bits of thyme.

Feast your eyes upon its glory...Collapse )

This was the tastiest meal I have ever cooked with my own hands. I win!

Photos just don't do it justice...
I arrive here via juggzy. This was roast dinner at my parents on Sunday 4th March.

I am a fairly recent convert to vegetables. I got the peas without question, the parsnips were provided after a positive response to the question while dishing up. The brussels arrived after I complained as I sat down to eat that I didn't have any when everyone else did and then, half way through the meal I realised I had been deprived of broccoli as well. Hmmmmph! I let them keep their carrots though!

Other core roast elements - roast spuds, roast beef, yorkshire pudding and gravy.

It all looks a bit brown but I can assure you, it was goooooorgeous!

Christmas Dinner

Christmas Dinner
Originally uploaded by gleet.
The stuff garnished with parsley is a chestnut, celery and brown and wild rice concoction. I made a celery sauce to accompany it (top of photo) which turned out to be really nice on the mashed potatoes. I had seconds then had to lie down for about an hour before I could move again.
1:31 pm
New kitchen, new oven and just in time for Christmas dinner. Great day to try out the spit roasting function...

I made a nut loaf covered in pastry to accompany roast potatoes last night. It's also really nice cold, so will be today's lunch, too:
