The above is the Christmas turkey I roasted last year. It wasn’t as great as the previous year turkey because this turkey from France does not have the timer like what I got from the USA. This morning, I went to the frozen food supplier and was told that the turkeys will only arrive later next week.
I know it is a little early to start my Christmas foodstuffs shopping but where I am, we only get the shipment once and hence, I want to make sure that I grab the best birds. Imported foodstuffs are not easy to get over here and last year, I even failed to get a bunch of fresh rosemary for the turkey. *roll eyes*
How I wish I have the chance to spend my Christmas with families in America or Canada because I have never experience a white Christmas before. I think Canada will be a better choice because I have relatives there. It must be wonderful to live in a cold country like that, enjoy eggnog (which I have never tasted btw) and roasting chestnuts on open fire.
Hotel Vancouver website here has enticed and gave me the idea of spending a Christmas in Canada where snow falls and I can actually build a real snowman from snow, and not styrofoam. I suppose those who are used to temperate countries will want a tropical and sunny Christmas while people like me want a white Christmas. Anyone wants to trade places with me?
