My favourite bit about Christmas dinner is definitely not the hours and hours battling with two burners and a microwave/oven or the time to prepare vs time to eat ratio or the fact that the rest of the family will probably ask for rice or....
Nope. None of that.
My favourite bit about Christmas is that you eat it on Day 1 and it's delicious:
And then you get to remake it day two and it's delicious all over again:
This rocked and is now definitely on my day-after-Christmas menu. I chopped up the chicken meat (we only managed half the chicken on the day so there was plenty left over!) and the leftover roast veggies and mixed it all up with some gravy then made another batch of stuffing (coz it's just soooo good!) and used that as a pie topper and yummmmm!
Then of course day three is chicken noodle soup. Being that this is Japan it's chicken broken-up-udon soup but chicken noodle soup is chicken noodle soup, hey?
And now the bones have been thrown out and Christmas is over.
Oh well, we haven't even started on the Christmas cake!
