Christmas Leftovers

27 Dec

A quiet day today, making Christmas Leftovers Soup, reading and resting. This year we had our locally grown, organic turkey boned and rolled and I asked the butcher for the bones and giblets from our bird and any others that he could spare. I was given the bits from three turkeys! I have made the most amazing stock from all these which has formed the base of our CL Soup, the best soup of the year! I have made several pints for later and also made four pots of delicious Turkey Liver Pate, one of which we had for lunch yesterday and the others are in the freezer along with the soup.

Candlelit dining

We have filled the dining room with candles for our festive dinners.

    What a wonderful idea to ask for the bones, giblets etc… I miss them from chickens as well… what are we supposed to make the gravy with, with no giblets etc !!!!

      I knew you would understand! Our butcher can get us chickens with giblets too, a real treat that the supermarkets don’t deliver on! xx
