Can't you have turkey and think of it as a Quorn log?  ;D

Well, it's all over.  The brined turkey tasted fantastic - succulent and flavoursome.  Who would have thought a turkey could ever be described in such terms?

Now, it's time to put the sprouts on for next Christmas.  And if any chestnuts arrive in our house next Christmas that aren't already peeled, I won't be responsible for my actions.

Glad you enjoyed your meal, Gill.  My Chataubriand wasn't bad either.  :)

I had an almost vegetarian meal today, apart from the roast potatoes being done in goose fat and the plate being full of turkey and beef, the rest of it was almost 3 of the 5 a day things that were vegeatables  ;D

Sounds very healthy, Sandra - it must be Christmas :) .

I roasted loads of potatoes in goose fat too, and I'm ashamed to say none of them have survived to Boxing Day.  Even cold, they're sooo scrummy!  Now the race is on to finish off the turkey because we don't have enough room in the fridge for the carcase.

So does Lizzie... they had a nice big goose. Sometime I think I'm missing out... but then again everyone have to make an effort if they want me there :-)

I had a few years as a veggie, but eventually we drifted back to full carnivore status. I can live without eating meat, I just prefer not to.

Turkey tortillas for lunch :) .  It'll be turkey with bubble & squeak for dinner tonight.  Turkey and chips tomorrow.  Turkey curry the day after.  Turkey broth the day after that.

I should imagine it'll be braised steak for New Year's Eve!  We'll be turkey-ed out by then :) .
