Christmas Dinner in July!

Do you like my summer time 'Christmas Dinner' spread! Complete with cocktail umbrellas!!

As I mentioned before we are trying to clear our freezer out and I had loads of Marks and Spencers Christmas food still left in there that we never used this past December. The only thing we were missing was a Turkey. So to make it a bit more summery I went and got a free range organic chicken... it was so tasty!

I mixed lemon zest, garlic (from Lily's allotment) and butter together and spread it all over it's skin. I then sqeezed a lemon cut in two over the top and then put the lemons and a garlic bulb in it's cavity- it tasted so so delicious and really fresh and light... and it had to be as we also had-
  • Sage and Onion Sausage stuffing
  • Pigs in Blankets
  • Cranberry and Port Sauce
  • Bread Sauce
  • Red Cabbage with Cranberry
  • Vegetables including Lily and Neil's Potatoes in Butter... yummy!!
and not forgetting the mince pies!!

.... there is now a big space in my freezer and no space in my stomach!! I'll be full till next weekend!!!We had Becky and Dougie (who had just returned from holiday in Spain) round as well as Ramen.. it was a great Sunday night dinner.
