. . . and despite yesterday's big shop I found I needed to pop to Morrison's this morning for a few things. It wasn't bad at all, no 'heaving' as they say. Busy? Yes, a bit, but I got a clear checkout with no need to queue so that can't be bad. And now it IS all done.
There's a busy morning ahead of me but it's all bits and bobs, nothing heavy or hard.
Yesterday I had a go at Jamie Oliver's gravy. It wasn't complicated, just a bit long winded, but when I'd finished I wasn't sure at all. However, the flavours must have developed overnight because this morning it tasted delicious! Good-oh. Now it just needs the juices from the turkey and it should be a great tasting gravy. My family goes a bundle on gravy and I'm never all that confident about it.
The turkey arrived mid afternoon and, as I am going to follow the instructions this year there's nothing to do really. Can't be bad. However, next year I think I must look else where. Kelly's turkeys are absolutely wonderful but they are obscenely expensive. Sad, but there you are!
Now I need to have my breakfast and get going. Have a wonderful day, one and all, and a very merry Christmas to you.
