A bit of good news and bad news.
The Christmas pudding if 'off'.
Well, we were spending close to our limit and the pudding is expensive to make. Like I said before it is hard doing full Christmas dinner with small group. Also a lot of work.
So we will make a traditional mixed fruit crumble with egg custard and tiramisu. Will be very good!
It is cheaper and much easier to make.
Fruit below a baked 'crumble' - a layer of flour, oats, nuts, coconut, butter mix. Like butter cookies but crunchy at the top and sticky at the bottom with fruit juices.
We have Costco mixed berries and will also add apples.
Covered with vanilla egg custard.Photoshttps://www.google.co.jp/search?q=english+mixed+berry+crumble+and+custard&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjf5eD1-uLJAhXkrKYKHa87ArUQ_AUIBygB&biw=1420&bih=806http://www.deliaonline.com/recipes/cuisine/european/english/raspberry-and-blueberry-crumble.html
Additionally, we will have a traditional English breakfast
; natural smoked bacon, sausages, Heinz baked beans, eggs, fried mushrooms, fried tomatoes, toast.If anyone can get UK HP sauce it would be perfect???
For dinner we still have 2 turkeys with stuffing and cranberry sauce
, roast veg and some in cheese sauce. Sweet glazed carrots.
A selection of nice cheeses and wholemeal bread
in the afternoon during cooking. Probably tomato soup.
Lots of hot spiced wine! (lots)
! Also a bottle of Irish (whisky) coffee cream.
We spent about 3,000en/person. We will use the other 500en for vegetables and spices etc. It might be a bit more like 3,700en etc for food. We will know after shopping in Ome.
Thinking of cutting the tomato soup as well - we will talk about it Saturday at Ome.
