For the first time in my life, I’m going to cook a whole christmas meal. Rafael and I spent all day running around after the ingredients, and we still do not have all of them. We just came back from Ikea, because we just have one good roasting pan, now there’s three…and four more wine glasses, two spatulas and an appetizer set 😀 it was impossible to buy just the roasting pans…hahaha
Anyway, I’m finding this dinner a bit of a challenge, because I was thinking of roasting a big chicken, with at least 2 kilos…but it’s impossible to find it here, you only find little small ones. I found out that the famous birds for christmas here are turkey, duck and goose. I almost changed the recipe to turkey, but instead I’m going with two small chickens…no problem 😉
So, here is my ideia for dinner on Thursday night:
- 3 different types of pâtés, that we will buy from a turkish supermarket, with bread;
- Camembert cheese with apricot jam;
- Jamón serrano;
- Olives (that I love).
- Rice with almonds;
- Roast Chicken;
- Roast Vegetables;
- Honeyed Ham with Pears and Cranberries;
- Stuffed Conchiglioni with Spinach and Feta;
- Fruit Tart (that I’m really nervous to make).
I hope that everything goes as smoothly as possible, and of course I’ll have my special helper, Rafael of course…ha! I’m going to start preparing tomorrow, so wish me luck! And of course I’m gonna share the results of this game, Christmas Dinner x Bruna, later this week or the next one.
I hope that you all have a wonderful and blessed Christmas with your loved ones! We are going to miss our family for sure this year, but at least we have one another and dear friends close by 🙂
xoxo and hohoho!
