« on: Mon Nov 09, 2015, 12:57 PM »
As there will be a lot of information about food it is a separate topic. For event sign up, do not use this page, use the main event topic.

Some shopping volunteers needed for Costco on Thursday or Friday night.

Everyone will work - cooking, cleaning, fire etc.
We all meet at Ome station at 10am for final shopping - do in groups for menu items and take food to Okutama.


Christmas Menu
Afternoon snacks while cooking (from 2pm)
Cheese, Crackers,  Garlic Toast / Melted Cheese  (Costco selection of cheeses and whole grain bread)

Cream of
Tomato Soup (to be decided)


Dinner

Roast Turkey with
Stuffing and Gravy, Cranberry Sauce

Roast Potatoes

Sweet Glazed Carrots

Broccoli, Cauliflower Leek in Cheese Sauce
(or other vegetables)


Hot Spiced Wine (lots 10L), Irish whisky coffee cream liqueur (big bottle)

=======================================================


Costco Teramisu with...
Fruit Crumble and Custard (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, apple)

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.


=======================================================

Sunday breakfast is a full English breakfast.
Tea and coffee also at breakfast.

Leftovers will be used for lunchbox Sunday.










Roast Turkey (2 or 3), Cranberry Sauce and Stuffing.

Deep frying turkey for 30-40 minutes. Prepare and cook stuffing separately at the same time.
Then fill turkey with stuffing and deep fry again for 30 minutes. Finally roast  until finished on BBQ oven style.
The Jamie Oliver recipe we used last year was really good...








Roast Vegetables (carrots, potatoes etc).

This is an easy way to do the broccoli and cauliflower (part boil, part baked)

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.

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.
