    Ox cheek slow braised for boxing day. Was gonna go in a pie but I think just with mash and cabarjè will do it.

    I bought Whiskey, lots and lots of Whiskey.

    I also bought a keg of Pastures Old, Hampshires finest Ale from The Flower Pots, to take up to those tight Northerners in my family, 40 pints of delisheshness just waiting to be popped. It’ll have no head, to which they’ll recoil into thier grumbles and open a Bottle of Black Sheep (which is lovely) and pretend everything Northern is betterish.

    I have also prepared a Beef Wellington with our Farms own Organic Beef, I need to fettle and stroke and complete, but it’s done, it’s well aged.

    Amarula cheesecake here – baked deepdish type. Literally cooling in the oven with the door ajar with me sat nearby hoping it doesn’t crack.

    Boozy but bloody delicious and probably the only seasonal concession this year.

    Bought some carrots, parsnips and onions, lemons and limes and cocktail cherries today. Had to go at 6:30am to avoid the congestion and there were still crazy ppl. I saw one shopping trolley piled as high as a 5’10” person’s shoulder! I know Christmas is about good cheer and giving etc but the couple looked as miserable as f***

    any suggestions for a slow cooker lamb joint? can set it going at 6.30am for eating at 2…
    I also have a turkey crown which I am cooking tomorrow for re-heating on sunday.
    Roast spuds with Rosemary. I intend to roast the carrots too, 5 mins in boiling water, 35 mins in the oven, mmm top notch, much better than boiled or steamed.

    myti – a glaze without mustard is the key… for me this year anyway… honey, thyme, big chunk butter, ground black pepper (20 screws for my mill)… but start it with cider vinegar. Get 100ml, small pan, reduce to a table spoon. honey, thyme, butter and pepper all whisked together. thats mine this year. 🙂
