So the book was out this afternoon as preparations began for Christmas day.
Only for me to find out, I had the only turkey ever supplied - without giblets
Back across town to the supermarket butcher as it was late, and the Albanian butcher was very interested when i said i wanted some turkey necks for a stock pot.
One stock made, then on to the secret mincemeat jar, and created these - my first Mince pies made on the Island
My Secret Santa mincepies ...
There was enough mincemeat to make 10 pies, and i had 20 cut outs, two are not here, they were wrapped for my friends who were desperate for a taste, and very keen to locate the source of my supply.
Sage and onion stuffing made too, with fresh sage that i picked myself yesterday up in the hills.
Out for dinner tonight - Krio Pigadi, which is about as high as you can get on this island, there should be some great views from up there ...
