I got a joint of beef in Lidl for Christmas day. They did not have much selection so I ended up with a piece of neck (one of the tougher cuts) but I braised it in red wine and it turned out both tender and tasty. Even the spuds had more flavour than normal as I had cooked them in the roasting tin with the beef. I usually mash them with sour cream but I had run out of that so I used vajkrem. I will make Cornish pasties with the rest of the beef, once I get to the shops and buy more onions and carrots.

All my left-overs were diced and fried for a traditional Boxing day Bubble and squeak with pickle.
It was nice to have a dozen people to enjoy Christmas, but it is so nice to get rid of them so I can eat what i like when I like.

With not much time since we arrived, we had duck, chicken & beautiful roasties. piles of veg, roast parsnips, cauli etc
All washed down with copious amounts of Hungarian wine.

Bring on New Year.
