So you have started to plan your Christmas dinner and then you realise how much it is going to cost you for all the things you are going to need and let’s face it there is a lot. And also you do like to impress if all the family are coming around.
So whilst I have being organising my own Christmas lunch which isn’t for a lot of people I was wondering what could be done to save money but not let on to your friends and family members that you have.
Now to round off the week nicely with my traditional Christmas dinner I am finishing the week with details of two great recipes that you make from your Christmas leftovers. This is a great way of saving money at this time of year when money can often be tight after all the money you have spent.
TURKEY BUFFET CASSEROLE
4 oz. of medium white noodles, (about 2 cups)
1 pkg. of frozen broccoli spears
2 tablespoons of butter or margarine
2 tablespoons of flour
1 teaspoon of salt
Now for the best part ofmy traditional Christmas dinner especially if you have your inlaws enforced on you – ALCOHOL. Your Christmas just wouldn’t be the same with a lovely Christmas punch and here is my personal favourite.
1 – 6 oz. can of frozen orange juice
2 – 6 oz. cans of frozen limeade
1 – 6 oz. can of frozen lemonade
1 large can of pineapple juice
1 pint of cranberry juice cocktail
8 cups of cold water
2 quarts of chilled ginger ale
Now for the third part of my traditional Christmas dinner is the part that the children love the most. Or anyone else in the family that has a sweet tooth. For this recipe I have gone with a traditional Chocolate trifle as everyone loves a trifle and they are very easy to make even for those that aren’t the best in the kitchen when it comes to baking.
My Traditional Christmas Chocolate trifle
200g bar Continental Plain Chocolate
2 x 500g Fresh Custard
1 pack 4 Double Chocolate Muffins
Now after showing you yesterday the traditional Christmas dinner starter I would like to take you into the facinating world of a full traditional Turkey roast. Christmas just isn’t the same without a lovely Turkey to enjoy with your family and friends.
Below you will find my traditional turkey roast recipe so get yourself thinking about what you need to get done before Christmas comes along.
1 Turkey fresh
1/4 lb Butter
1/2 lb Salt pork,thinly sliced
To kick off my traditional Christmas dinner it has to start with a traditional starter to get every body ready for the turkey main course. To make life easier and to enjoy your christmas menu even more I have opted for a traditonal prawn cocktail. This is a fantastic starter to do and has been a popular favourite since the 1970’s and is one of my wife’s all time favourites.
So this week I will be talking you through all the Christmas dinner food that you need to prepare.
