Christmas Dinner.

At Christmas Jai and I went down to Egham to see my lovely sister Melissa and my brother in law Jason. We had the most lovely Christmas dinner and it was my first time in trying a few different things. Im used to having a pork roast for Christmas in Melbourne, so this was the first time that I could ever remember that I had a whole roasted turkey for Christmas.
We had loads more yummy things too. It was a FEAST!

Blinis with Smoked Salmon, Creme Fraiche and chives (recipe below), and
Pear, Parmesan and Rocket wrapped in Prosciutto. (recipe below)

Jason's Prawn Salad.

Roast Turkey stuffed with Orange and Herbs,
Roast Potatoes with Polenta, cooked in Goose Fat,
Stuffing Balls,
Pigs in Blankets,
Mel's Winter Coleslaw,
Roast Parsnip, Carrot & Onion,
Brussel Sprouts,
And last but not least, gravy!

Desert: Christmas Pudding.
