Christmas Eve and Christmas Day

We visited the plot on Christmas Eve before visiting our relatives. We were the only people on the soggy site but our little robin was flitting about - Jamie took some cheese up for him and he seemed very happy with it!
We picked sprouts and lovely leeks for Christmas Day. The leeks were from under the enviromesh which really paid off; the leeks were perfect.
The Christmas meal, cooked mostly by me (for the first time in 24 years) was delicious (even though I say so myself!).
The Cordon Vert recipe for the filo parcels was lovely. Shame there were no parsnips but the leeks, sprouts and rosemary from the plot made for a delicious meal.


  1. That looks delicious. I`m afraid its turkey AGAIN today ....after that we`re going vegetarian for at least a month.

  2. We were really pleased to receive Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's 'Veg Everyday' book for Christmas from Jamie's nephew. Very inspiring! Looking forward to cooking some goodies from in there!

  3. So - you won't wear ear muffs but you wear a hat like that????!!!!!
