The time to start preparing your Christmas Menu for 2018 has come!! but do not panic my fellow home chefs, we have prepared a Christmas Day menu specially for you.
There is a lot of preparation for this meal, and do not be afraid, as the end results justify all the work you put into it.
We are going to guide you on preparing this meal and trust me, your family and guests will be overwhelmed and you will enjoy your Christmas Day around the table and not in the kitchen.
To make it easy we will go through this menu stage by stage, and remember this website is devoted to simple meals that are easy on the pocket.
Right... enough chit chat, it is time to start our Christmas Menu
Prawn and mock crayfish
Cold Gammon with Mauritian mayonnaise and 3 beans salad.
Roasted leg of lamb, roasted mixed veggies, potatoes and gravy.
Trifle with your choice of topping, Ice cream, fresh cream, creamy custard or fruity Yoghurt. They are all great, the choice is yours.
Next, we do the fish.
Now for the Cocktail Sauce
When the fish has cooled down, pour half of the dressing over and combine well.
Okey Dokey we will start with the Gammon part of the Christmas as it will take approx. 2 hrs.
Whilst the Gammon is cooking, we can prepare the other food for our menu.
Driiiiiiiiiig Driiiiiiiiiig Hear that ! time to remove the Gammon and set aside to rest.
Sieve the liquid from the pot and use it to add to your dogs chunks food, make soups, stews etc.
Time to prepare our Mauritian Mayo an absolute must for the Gammon Part of the Christmas menu. I call this Ritz's Mayo after my dear Late Mother- in- Law Rita.
Place med size pot on your hob
For the Gravy I usually buy Heat and Pour sachets from Woolworths but all supermarkets carry their own brand of Heat and Pour gravies. Or perhaps you have your own special gravy that you make and can be easily used for the lamb on this Christmas Menu.
Time out, you deserve a cool glass of your best beverage. Sit back and relax and think back when you started with this Christmas Menu, smile and compliment yourself on a great job well done.
All that needs to be done now to complete your menu is the roast potatoes, roasted veggies and salads which can be completed on Christmas morning,
Well done one and all!!
We wish you and all your Family, Relatives and Friend
BON APITITE AND MERRY CHRISTMAS
YOUR CHRISTMAS MENU IS DONE TILL NEXT YEAR..
P.P.S. If you enjoyed this Christmas Menu, look out for our NEW YEAR's DAY menu which we will love to share on this site.
