Mystery of the missing turkey


This is not something you need to earmark for your Christmas viewing; although it could be an episode from Fawlty Towers. I went to my freezer today to get the turkey crown out to defrost and it isn't there, or I can't seem to find it which might not be the same thing. I do rather think that it would be big enough for me to find, even though my freezer is crammed with things I bought twice because I forgot I had already bought them. Clearly I have forgotten to buy the turkey; I thought that last year I bought 2 because I was worried about having enough for 6 people, maybe that was the year before. I think I would remember eating it on a different occassion, but I seem to place great faith in a memory which can only be described as defective. Good job I found out that the turkey is missing now rather than when we went to prepare it for dinner; or it could well have turned into a murder mystery!

Christmas hugs to you all xx

Oh gosh, I'm so pleased you went early to find your turkey otherwise as you say, things could all have gone very badly wrong!!

Sending you every possible good wish for a Happy Christmas 😃🎅🏻

Glad you discovered it in time, would it have been Toad in the Hole otherwise? :)

I went to the freezer today to get the frozen gammon joint and pork out to thaw, to find I have three joints of pork and no gammon. I must have had a brain hiccup and subconsciously repeated, " have gammon, must get pork"

I think a quick trip to the supermarket tomorrow, as early as I can make it. It goes on the lengthening list with cream, eggs and milk. I had a big order delivered yesterday to avoid this scenario, who forgets cream, eggs and milk at Christmas for heavens sake!! (Obviously me!)

Wishing you a lovely Christmas.


Oh no! It is a very good thing that you still had time to buy one. I genuinely and sincerely want to wish you a wonderful Christmas and new year. Please take care of yourself.

All my hopes and dreams for you
