Christmas Dinner all planned :) - what are you making?
« on: December 17, 2011, 02:09:25 PM »
Breakfast – monkey bread, bacon, eggs (same every year - boys expect the monkey bread :) )

 

Apps
– 1 dip and some raw veggies - just to keep us tied over until dinner....

 

Dinner – different special dinner every year - we've done it all from Paella, to prime rib...this year:

Crown Roast – mom already special ordered it (see recipe below)

Brussel Sprouts (roasted - not sure which recipe)

Broccoli (for the kids – they say they don’t like b.s’s)

New potatoes

Bread

Chocolate cake - I don't have the recipe but it look sooooooooo Yummy and rich, will share it when I get a copy, again...has coffee in the cake

vanilla Ice cream

 

Recipe for crown roast

Ingredients
1 crown roast of pork (about 8 pounds)
1 pound ground pork
1/2 pound bulk pork sausage
3/4 cup finely chopped onion
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup diced peeled apple
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
1-1/2 cups soft bread crumbs
1/2 cup minced fresh parsley
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried sage
 
Directions
Tie roast and place on a rack in a large roasting pan. Cover the bone ends with foil. Insert met thermometer. Roast at 350° for 2 hours.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the pork and sausage until browned; drain and set aside. In the same skillet, saute onion in butter until tender. Add apple and celery; cook for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Add the cooked pork and sausage, crumbs, parsley, salt, pepper and sage; mix well.
Remove roast from oven. Carefully press a double layer of foil down through open center of roast to form a base for stuffing. Spoon stuffing lightly into crown. Return to oven and bake for 1 hour more or until thermometer reads 160°. Transfer roast to serving platter. Cut between ribs to serve. Yield: 16-20 servings.

I didnt cook dinner this year!

went to my sils house and she made it!
i made a safe trifle and mince pies for son, in large amounts for everyone, and the only allergy problem was that she forgot to check the gravy and he couldnt have the banoffee pie, because of the choc grated on top.


and good news, the dog was in the kennels! yay ! so didnt get bit, and took my hand washing gel, as there was no soap to wash your hands in the toilet.




we ate.
prawn cocktail, with advocado,
pate and crackers/toast.

turkey with sage and onion , and chestnut stuffing.
potatos and parnips roasted in goose fat,
brussel sprouts
carrots
purple sprouting brocolli.
bread sauce, cranberry sauce,
gravy.
sil was devastated because she forgot the pigs in blankets and the yorkshire pudding. ( i have never had christmas dinner with yorkshire pudding though, so was puzzled over the whole timing of cooking all of this..)


christmas pudding, with brandy butter, mince pies with cream. trifle and banoffee pie.

cheese board, crackers.


twas a yummy dinner!

biscuit base, like a cheese cake, with sliced bananna on, then layer of caramel with whipped cream on top, grated choc to decorate, very simple to make, i use a tin of condensed milk and boil it for the caramel layer.

oh is very yummy and high in calories! (as yummy things often are..)

Eragon, that sounds amazing.  How do you make the biscuit base?
