Christmas treats

We thought that a twenty pound turkey would be a problem (I ordered a 7 kg bird but they came in a little bigger) but it turns out that four people can polish off a quarter of that and then have enough leftovers for lunches and all sorts of other meals such as midnight nibbling.

It would not be Christmas without chestnuts, especially Italian chestnuts. Thanks to TG, we all got to enjoy this holiday must-have.

Normally, Christmas breakfast is a meal rich with eggs, cheese, and whipping cream. This year I tried a new bread - Apple Oatmeal - which is so good that I think it is going to become a tradition. This loaf is full of unpeeled apples, oatmeal, and walnuts. The recipe is from the 1983 issue of Family Circle.
