Cowart's Common Room
I CAN'T SLEEP CHAT POST

Quite a busy day, my Daughter and Grandchildren came to see us over from the Broads for a few hours and then late afternoon my Son arrived from London to spend Christmas with us, he has the most awful cold, ooh, hope I don't catch it.

Well that's it, no more Christmas shopping to do, Turkey ready to be stuffed with Chestnut and Cranberry and Pies and Cakes baked, and more importantly........ my favourite tipple.

Seems to have been quite busy here on the site, so off to take a tour.

If you can't sleep and there are others on line then have a natter here.

Night Night, & Sweet Dreams.

Frances's Avatar Hello Camilla and Fennie, too.

Hey Fennie, just how long does it take to cook a goose? I am laughing as I type it, thinking of the old expression a cooked goose, and realizing that I am totally ignorant of just what time is involved. No matter how long, I know you will have a splendid feast. Happy Christmas!

Camilla, glad you have now completed all the preparations, and can now enjoy having your family around. (As I said in my other message, please do take care not to catch that cough.)

Re:
Fennie's Avatar Frances, I am going to do a blog about geese - how long you cook them will depend on the weight and the heat of the oven. They are fatty birds and don't dry out as easily as turkey or even duck. I have said something about this also on the Christmas Travails post.

Re
Camilla's Avatar Hello Frances and Fennie,

I have just been checking my PM's, box is almost full.!

The Turkey here is a 14 pounder, heck....... will I get it in the oven........ (poor Turkey). I eat meat, but am quite happy not to eat meat, HL will not be able to get through Christmas without his usual traditional feast.

This Turkey will probably cook for about 5 hours Frances, so if Goosey is going to be cooked I would say 2 hours for every 4 pounder in weight, not sure though. I know Fennel goes well with Goose.

My son's partner is a VEGAN, no meat and no dairy products.

Yep, I do not want to catch my son's cold........ it was exactly the same time last year that he had it too, poor boy.

Re:
Frances's Avatar Tomorrow will the last day that some of our city sidewalks are lined with all sizes of would be Christmas trees, longing to be selected, hauled or carried back to an apartment and decorated.

Each year, these stands appear the day after our Thanksgiving Day. Many of the trees come from Canada, although many of the salespersons who stay next to the trees right round the clock (keeping as warm as possible huddled next to portable heaters) sound as if they just might be Russian. I studied Russian, and recognize enough to know I don't really understand what they are saying even if I know it is being spoken in Russian.

Anyhow, it is a treat to have these fragrant green sentinels around for a month. Then, on the 25th ... they have disappeared.

Re:
Frances's Avatar Camilla, it is late for me here, and very very late for you.

Wishing you sweet dreams. Hard to imagine that it is already Christmas Eve in your home.

Re
Camilla's Avatar Frances - we have a farm nearby that sells so many of those beautiful Christmas Trees from very tiny ones to such very tall ones, different variety's and some of Norweigan Spruce.

As you drive past you can see too their hanging twinkling lanterns outside, lots of shelves inside of Nativity Scenes to purchase too.

I would love to be able to speak another language, can speak french a little but a tad rusty, I would love to be able to speak Italian.

Re
Camilla's Avatar Yes, can hardly believe it is already Christmas Eve here Frances.

Night Night dear Frances, wishing you the sweetest of dreams, see you tomorrow, and as they say in Italian............ BONASARA.!
