Where's the Christmas thread?  It's just days away! I haven't bought a single thing yet and probably wont till Friday/Saturday morning. 

TBH, it's a bit of a burden. 

Merry Christmas everyone.

Have got nearly everyone's except the parents

Mind, dad had his early as he needed his!

Next year hoping for the parents to go to older brother's rather than be here to ruin it for me again, else am buggering off 

this year, mum decided to tell me what one of my brothers had bought me  >:( she manages to ruin it for me each year, last 2 yrs involved me wrapping my own presents, so I didnt bother wrapping them  ::)

I have bought nothing yet.

James wants an ipod max - new edition fingy - he will get that and his stocking full of cds, dvds, guitar fings, chocolate coins, satsuma, lego all the usual and some money to spend in sales for new clothes

Pandy wants cook school day with Martin Wishart (which I will obviously need to accompany him on) and winter wheels for bike.  He will also get stocking full of gadgety stuff.

I wants Pink Nikon camera and new glasses and new shoes and new bags and new blender fingy and crueset stuff and new bike clothes and a new winter coat and pamper day and sweets and chocolates and pink fings and scarfs and loads of stuff from lush and percy pigs and new watch and ear rings and socks and dressing gown and more fings and even more fings...................

Not that I am selfish but Christmas is about giving so GIES it!!!


Oh and cooking dinner as usual - lobster bisque, turkey and all trimmings, panetonne and custard/pavlova/cranberry and raspberry panacotta

I'm guessing not all butchers will have that stuff to sell, right? 

I've got kidney drying out in the oven just now and my house is smelling of urine!  yuk!
: Re: Christmas

Christmaseve, diner with friends and kids at my place.
Christmasday... My personal tradition (oven on, stuff food in, take food out, stuff down face, stuff food in oven, take food out, stuff down face, stuff food in oven, etc etc until we almost explode lol). Second Christmasday... Same process as the day befor but we bake a cake and decorate it with whatever is sweet, calloriebommed and yummie.
On those days we do nooooothing, just hang out in pyama, stuffing ourselves shamelessly with everything non-healthy, watching movies or play games on the WII.
: Re: Christmas
: kizkiznobite December 23, 2011, 04:58:53 PM
diesel....please please can i come next year.... :D

mug....drying kidney? why??....

if you speak to butcher he will sort you out lites and linings...if he makes his own haggis and sausage it hit and miss...but at this time of year they need the space for birds etc....so dump it...he will let you have it for pennies....
: Re: Christmas
: mugatea December 23, 2011, 05:40:59 PM
Great, thanks I'll try to get some and I just boil it yeah?

I was just cooking the kidney as I do with liver in the over at around 100c and then chop it up into little bits for treats.
: Re: Christmas
: kizkiznobite December 23, 2011, 06:04:40 PM
i boil for about 20mins...lift out add vegs to the stock..leave to cool..

ok..kidney treats good...but for me on a tight budget with 5 they a dinner...so as above except would only boil for 10 mins...feed with couscous or pasta or rice or biccies...
: Re: Christmas
: mugatea December 23, 2011, 06:17:05 PM
usually I use liver for treats but when no liver in Morrisons I get kidney (if available)  although I wanna see if I can get the liver from butchers.

Well there is a Butcher not too far from me that quite a few people I know talk about so I'll try them for lungs and stuff and see what I can get.

thanks Kiz!

Merry Christmas everyone, hope you all have a relaxing love filled day.

Has anyone went shopping today?  I went to a major mall in Glasgow today and then later did a shopping at Asda and it was surprisingly quiet compared to last year or previous years.

A sign of the times of a broken economy?
