Special dinner as it is NYD or CBA?

I usually cook a roast and this year is no exception. We were given a leg of lamb from our employers are part of our Christmas gifts from them and I've got to admit it must have come from a mutant lamb as it is the largest leg of lamb that I've ever SEEN, let alone cooked! :giggle: Currently doing it's stuff in the oven, the aroma is making me drool whilst I'm waiting to steam my veg :redface:

Mr T is doing a three bird roast - but it won't be ready until 9ish - we never eat much before then anyways. We are having mash and roasters and carrots too. Nom nom....

Yes-special food. And it's all yucky! But my OH insists. Black Eyed Peas for Luck. Cabbage for money and salted pork for I don't know what...

How interesting! I didn't know food had special meanings for New Year - apart from over here when the first person over the threshet is meant to be dark haired and carrying a crust of bread and lump of coal.

Thats interesting Karin. Do you serve them altogether or make different dishes?

Its roast leg of lamb for us with Roast Pots, Butternut Squash, Parsnips, Carrots and Spring Greens and Yorkshire Pudding, gravy and mint sauce. It should have been ready and eaten by know but I am all behind. My cooker is pants and the large leg of lamb has taken an age to cook. It smells divine can't wait!

I'm doing lamb as well, its got a morrocan spicy crust on it, and it smells really nice. chickpea and apricot tagine for the veggies keeping to the north african theme. Actually its just that I'd got all the spices and out and thought, why not?

We usually go to OH's parent's house for NYD as we spend Christmas at my parent's house. But this year his Dad is working and I'm full of cold so not done anything! I definitely CBA to cook so will probably end up having a takeaway

Home made Indian at lunch time...Beef Bufaad (sp?), dry carrot and potato curry, samosas and rice. I am now entirely bloated and have awful heart burn. But it really was worth it, we love home made curries.:smile:

I like the sound of Moroccan food Tillywoo. I bought a book to do some cooking about three years ago and still haven't tried it. One of my must do New Year things.

Atm my husband does the shopping (I did go with him and insist on the lamb). He buys the most boring stuff ever:giggle::giggle:

I did a full roast dinner this afternoon. Love a roast dinner. Hubby is just nuking the Christmas pud as we speak. I've never had brandy butter before but hubby was sent a rather scrummy hamper and done was in that do I'm going to try it for the first time. Mind you, this is only my third year of eating Christmas pud as I thought I didn't like it.

Was expecting to cook for 10 today as I do every Tuesday but people started dropping out, mainly as didnt want the plain, healthy stuff i was offering (sausages, mash and greens) so in the end everyone else had chinese and I had baked salmon and mixed veg couscous - pretty sure it was much nicer than the greasy old chowmeins squatting on their plates! Ill get em with the sausage and mash tomorrow!

We've got a wee tradition that I cook on NYD and for a change I'm not hungover so managed fine! Leek Crustade served with garlic new baby potatoes, yum yum!

And for dessert, apparently my birthday cake has arrived early and won't keep, so we're having hot chocolate cake for afters!
