Stuff Turkey 09.00
Put on pudding to steam 09.30
Put Turkey in 10.00
Put potatoes on to boil 11.30
With that timetable, either the turkey will be raw, or the potatoes overcooked to hell!

Ah.... but when you're pissed enough you don't mind...

By "nuke" I meant give them a zap in the microwave to get the "heating up to cooking temperature" part done quickly. When I do a big meal I find that the stove top is often fully occupied with pans, so I put things that would normally be parboiled in a baking dish, then use the microwave to get them cooked, and just transfer the dish, or the contents to the oven to brown them. I find this easier than doing them in the oven right from the start as it means that as the Turkey or such gets closer to being "Table ready" I can forshorten the veg dishes, rather than have to make a "Do I want to serve unbrowned veg, overdone turkey, or pull the turkey and have it cool off too much?" decision.

The point wasn't so much about adding sugar to the parsnips, but more that when I use the microwave as a parboiler I add whatever seasonings between microwave and oven.
I don't know how you did it,

but you managed to make this herculean task sound a bit gay

Do you mean gay as "enjoyable and entertaining", or gay as in "camp"?

Neither, rather as in 'dogs of Yulin' gay.

I'm lost there, no idea of what that would look like. I would like to point out that there is no similarity whatsoever between myself and the Galloping Gourmet.

I hear ya.

I've done a couple of Christmas meals where I had all 4 elements on the stove, the oven, the steamer, the microwave and the BBQ on the go at the same time.

Anything above 4 courses and I find I have a real struggle to get the timing right so that everything is ready for serving at the right time, the second struggle being completely forgetting a course. (done that a couple of times!)
Wow, and one cook???
I'm sure you're already booked for this year?

I just threw down some times.

I should have realised that a pedant such as you would pick up on it.

Anyway, if I need any cooking tips, I'll be sure to ask someone with a more interesting and diverse repertoire than yours.

You gotta be kidding! That guys (Tom) repertoire goes indiscriminately from Vitello Tonato all the way to Schwartenmagen
Everytime I thought I had him sussed out he came up with a new surprise that didn't fit the picture. LOL.

Does he use ground vegetarians, or are they cut into strips?

He's obviously never heard of small places like Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

European and a bit of Tex-Mex is hardly diverse.

And anyway, he acts a bit like Delia Smith - you err even a minute amount from a recipe and he'll leap down your throat.

Anyway, I'll let him keep impressing you ladies so please carry on.

He doesn't impress me. There are not many of the things he's mentioned cooking that I would even want to eat let alone cook.

Look, Curley! Tom is a really good cook:
christmas-dinner-appetisers-sides-nigel-slaters-classic-dev-007.jpg

Okay, I made these today when I got home. YES, they are very tasty BUT ... I had about 8 and I don't think, I'll need any food anymore before tomorrow (they were mentioned as appetizers). Somehow they sit in my stomach like rocks (and no, I did not eat the stones)
