T is making chicken broth with left over bird from yesterdays lunch - that we will have today for luncheon and he's prepared a steak meal which is in the slow cooker for tonight. It is a new receipe he's invented - it smelled delightful whilst I was mucking out - he was frying the steak off with red wine, mushroom and onions. Now it is in the slow cooker ....mmmm.
So, who is eating turkey up and who is having a change?

Well so far today I have eaten Maltesers and Liquorice. So I'd better go and get some food and start looking after myself!

We're having a little buffet when my Sister finally gets here with the kids! :rolleyes:
Cold meats, dips and other finger food. Followed by trifle and Christmas cake (and grazing on choccies :giggle: )

I have taste tested everything on the buffet before everyone arrives and will of course need to do so once more before I go to collect everyone, just to make sure it doesn't degredate over time. Can't wait. We have 16 humans and a dog coming to visit.

Boxing Day is always my favourite day of the year.

I am having a yummy brunch of bacon, eggs and pancakes with maple syrup at the moment.

Will go back down to my mums later (I stayed there last night only few mins away) for dinner with family, no idea what we'll have, I imagine turkey leftovers or something like that.

We had bubble and squeak for breakfast and now about to have cold meats, turkey from yesterday, breaded ham and beef, with creamy mash, coleslaw, potato salad, red cabbage, horseradish, pickles etc.

Gateau Diane, chocolate gateau, mince pies, christmas pud or sherry trifle for dessert or a bit of each :giggle: Plus after eights and matchmakers.

I'm on the bubbly stuff and have been since bucks fizz time at breakfast.

I have been for a long dog walk though so am aloud to pig out now!!

Ooohhh can't wait yummy!!

This sounds like me!!! I have spent the day grazing on leftovers. It would seem sooooo wrong at any other time of year and is yet acceptable at Christmas! I even start to sound like my Mum, saying things like 'It'd be a shame to waste it.......' 'It needs eating up.......' etc......

We had cold turkey, ham and salad. Sausage rolls, mini sausages. All sorts of cheese, boiled eggs. Plus the usual pickles etc.

Lots of chocolate:happy:

I have already got to the "I never want to see another slice of Turkey" again stage.
