No, it was Turkeymas.

(i.e. I got tired of doing a Thanksgiving and Christmas turkey, so we now do one in-between)

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Just the two. Turkey with cranberry sauce or sage & onion stuffing (sauce me, stuffing OH), miniature sausages wrapped in bacon, brussel sprouts and mash followed by Xmas pud. Used to occasionally do a prawn cocktail for starters, but either of us eat as much as we used to so the two courses will be plenty.

Then we'll eat light in the evening. Maybe some more turkey or we have some dried bison to try, some cheese and lovely Christmas salad.

One: fondue chinoise/bourguignonne!

Best this way.

The two times I deviated from this traditional menu, I was lambasted by my visiting sister for serving her 'raw pony' (actually rare horse filet), and by my non-SwissGerman kids (the Swiss german ones thought it was great) last year for serving 'jambon en croute'.

hehe

Will you be doing Bourguignonne (oil) or Chinoise (broth) or both? Fondue meat seems to have been on sale a lot lately...

Re: Tonight's dinner?

If all goes well tomorrow, it'll be a three course Christmas dinner, one dish prepared per flatmate.

Seared scallops for the entree; roast beef for the main; and tiramisu for the dessert. Plus a good wine to go with the meal, and tea/coffee to follow.

I think we will eat quite well tomorrow evening.

Both.

I buy the meat whole and cut as needed.

Tradition started as one daughter preferred both, and the other oil.

But even for the chinoise, we thick cut, less dry that way.

Flat Christmas Dinner. Entree is seared scallops, pea puree, gremolata, lemon butter white wine sauce and pancetta. Main course is roasted rump fillet of beef with haricots verts, pan roasted carrots and potatoes. Dessert is tiramisu.

The wine was a nice robust red blend from Tuscany.

Altogether, a very nice night had and good food to go with it.

Add some herbs and you have a green (Christmassy ) decoration. You could add an Xmas bauble too for giggles
