We're having Quorn too - though we prefer to use the fillets with sage and onion stuffing underneath, a white wine and garlic sauce and puff pastry on top. Yum. Starving now!

Charlie-is-my-Darling - Thank you for your kind comments - they were said in all sincerity - as you seem to have realized - I am pleased to picture the scene and the laughter Also I offer solemn prayers to any God who happens to be handy - I love several - that your Good-man and his Colleagues and any other Fireman who is working Christmas will have never-the-less a peaceful and really Merry - Christmas free from hurt and accident. Everyone who is going to read this post - join me in this wish - what ever your faith - or even if you have not a Faith - make a good THOUGHT that they may be free from being hurt - ALWAYS

Sarah - that sounds Elegant - I would add Walnuts and / or Pecans - but you have an excellent notion - love how it sounds.
Bearman - I do not know a better way to cook a Chooky-Bird of any sort - I do know of an alleged Book on the subject "100 ways with Left-over Turkey" - I shall never buy it - there cannot be 99 more than my one - which still stands - the sad thing - is that Turkey Birds seek sanctuary in my yard because they know they are safe there.

Sarah,

I don't know whether you've already seen them, but I put the recipes for three different stuffings up on the 'Christmas recipes'. The apricot and walnut one might go well with your meal. Or one of the others. Or none of them. Just suggesting... :-)

I permalinked them Sam, but as you know I didn't actually do anything so will track them down manually. Apricot and walnut sounds the business. Boxing day christmas for us this year.

We will more than likely have venison again. just tastes like strong beef with only fraction of the fat.

Paul..venison is a very underrated meat, very good for you and tasty...I make a venison cobbler, always a hit!

Sam - those stuffings sound delicious - I am having a DuckCrown - and will like a little tray for stuffing - and have it in mind to adapt a stuffing recipe for the Duck - it will want orange flavour and some Zest of Orange would provide it - any ideas lovely people

I'll have to try harder then. :-D

Not sure that this will do for Christmas Dinner but this sauce is amazing with duck Patricia...if you like duck try it in the New Year with Duck breasts.
A little oil
A 1 inch piece of ginger grated
1 Tsp five spice powder
4 Tbsp chinese plum sauce
8floz fresh orange juice

saute the ginger for a few moments in the oil
Add the other ingredients and bubble away til syrupy.
Done!

I like to serve this in a little jug or poured over Crispy Duck breasts.
I serve it with a watercress salad that has orange segmments and saute potatoes.
It's very good!

I made them on Saturday and they smelled very good. I don't know which would be best with duck. Perhaps someone else will.

In reply to an earlier post on 17 Dec 2012 19:06:39 GMT
Well I also like that Sauce - Pixie - that sounds very good to me - I need to order a piece of Ginger from Tesco - I have them deliver - I just purely H A T E - shopping

No Turkey for us, individual beef Wellingtons and a three bird roast (Capon, Duck and Pheasant) for the other half of the family who are arriving on Boxing Day.
