Happy Christmas Everyone!! How was your Christmas Eve? Had lots of food and spending quality time with family and friends maybe?
As for me, I had a wonderful time with my Dear Turkey.
"I will cook you tonight Turkey!"
" Woah! Where did you get that knife from??!"
"Turkey: I will KIIILLL you!"
"Do whatever you want, I'm gonna cook you tonight!"
Yeap! It was my first time roasting a Turkey! If you know me well, I'm never an excellent cook. So, I was really nervous about cooking this bird. I spent 58 bucks for this bird, if I screw it up, that's it. No dinner.
I spent the whole day preparing it. Chopped up the ingredients, making the stuffing, and pray hard that this bird comes out tender and juicy.
I got the recipe from Jamie Oliver's site. The Christmas Roast Turkey Recipe. I can guarantee you, this recipe is awesome! My turkey really came out tender and juicy! Very tasty too! I was impressed! Gowd! I never thought that I can make such nice turkey and I made my own stuffing! Best stuffing ever! Do try it!
Everyone at home loves the bird. I was really happy! We finished the whole 4kg bird! Unbelievable. Well, Karzan munch some too. hehe
Other than then having the Turkey, I have made the Crunchy Cucumber salad with Grilled King Prawns for entree. A light starter.
and some Parmesan Bread Crumbs Long Beans for sides. I like this simple and beautiful looking beans. The recipe is from Coles Christmas Edition Magazine.
For dessert, I made Pineapple Tart Tartan drizzled with caramel sauce.
It was under my expectation because the pineapple didn't cooked well enough as I didn't used the fresh pineapple. But it tasted nice and sweet.
I'm really pleased with my cooking today! Of course Joe helped me a lot too! I don't think I can handle it all by myself! I would have running around and panic like a fool if I'm making everything alone. hahahaha.
So, what did you guys have on your Christmas Eve??
