We had our British XMAS meal today. I specifically took charge of the Brussels sprouts to make certain they wouldn’t be boiled into submission.

Me: how do you want the sprouts done? Roasted? Steamed?
Wife: boiled

I steamed them and made sure they weren’t over cooked. They weren’t perfect but they were as good as steamed, unadorned sprouts were gonna be.

Me: were the sprouts ok?
Wife: they were a bit undercooked.
Me: my only goal was for them to not get boiled into watery submission.
Wife: yeah but that’s how they’re supposed to be at British Xmas.

:evil:

Who is responsible for these Pigs in Blankets shite?

Dreadful things.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

Ham is hardly a special food is it? It's something you have year round here.

If just boiling boil them in chicken stock will make them tastier

Sorta, kinda. Like lamb is yearly around your parts, it isn't here.

There's a company called Honeybaked Hams (OJ used to own a bunch of franchises) that advertises like crazy around Xmas. It's sandwich meat around here, but a whole spiral, glazed, ham is largely seasonal.

When I was a kid, we'd have Xmas eve dinner at my Swedish grandparents. Four different kind of herring and scalloped potatoes. I was always hungry until we got home and I could eat normal food.

I can't find the "Now Eating" thread but yesterday I made a killer bubble and squeak out of the Xmas veg leftovers, with a fried egg atop. On the side, a slice of chestnut, cheese and parsnip loaf, one of the best things Baron makes. Fabulous.
