There was one year I even broke my own record by roasting TWO birds!
This year due to different circumstances, I decided not to spend hours preparing the bird. But... but... what is Xmas without turkey? Hee hee... My Plan 2...
A whole rolled 1.8kg of easy beesy turkey roast PLUS oven proof tray for NZ $39.95! Deal!
The packed bird roll is, of course; frozen. So if you are as lazy as me, please make sure you let the bird THAW in the fridge for 24-48 hours before cooking.
Perlas potatoes, these little gems only come around once a year! Yes, you can eat the skin! It is full of vitamins and minerals :) I usually do not fancy potatoes, but I never miss Perlas!
Once the turkey is baked for 95 minutes and the skin go a golden brown, take it out of the hot oven; cover with foil and let it sit for at least 30 minutes. This is very important for a moist meat.
beetroots, cucumber salad with oranges and the Perlas potatoes tossed with butter and mint.
And did I tell you the temperature was sweltering? It is so hot and humid, like Malaysia! Heck, look at the thermometer!
That is inside our living room!
We are all melting!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you :)
Christmas should be like this! Ho ho ho...
