Used to have goose and like it, but that was just for three plus leftovers. This year its partridge - one each.
Cheering up a bit with grumpy spells later
That was a SERIOUS amount of fat Mono!
We have Duck this year, I'm quite looking forward to it.
However - Partridge sounds tempting...
Our Deanland ALG fly-in is 8th June 2013 Fly-Ins and Social Events for more info
Partridge is a nice meat, and one bird, although small, is easily enough per person for normal eaters.
It was enough for three kids of 14, 12 and 6 years of age, which made it even more amusing! I'm still laughing about it now.
As with any meat, it's important to get the right variety of the right species and know it has been brought up proper. Goose IS fatty, but a good one will also provide a fair amount of meat. Very tasty it is too.
The fat makes awesome roasties too.
We have had goose for years and fed up to 8 before now. We are having goose again tomorrow - I am sorry that Mono had such a bad experience because I am very fond of goose. Don't worry, Flintstone!
I know it's a silly username. If you've met me, I probably introduced myself as Josh...
I've just finished making the stuffing for the goose - cranberry, chestnut and fig, mixed with sausage meat. Hopefully not too sweet.
From your comments, it sounds like we'll be eating more stuffing than bird!
Oh well, there's a whole gammon to fill in the spaces, and the boys do insist on loads of pigs-in-blankets, so we should be OK!
I like to cook enough to see us through to New Year without resorting to shopping!
I caught a glimpse of Mr J Oliver dishing up goose on tv approx 30mins ago and I have to say I suddenly felt very hungry! (I have not been hungry today due to a man-cold, which we all know is nowhere near as bad as bird flu).
My money is on AerBabe supplying Mono a quality goose next time. Could be the start of a new Flyer forum service.
Aerbabe has her name on some meat from the pig in the forefront of this picture. He's going to be 100% sausages. The one at the back will be reserved for Sunday joints and bacon.
