Seasons' Eatings!

And a belated merry xmas to you all!

Now, these chickpea cutlets from the Veganomicon recipe weren't our actual xmas dinner, but they would have made a really nice one! I quadrupled the sage to give the flavour a nice hint of xmas stuffing and served it alongside some very festive cranberry sauce.

For our actual xmas dinner Jay and I went to his parents and had a very tasty vegetable soup with crusty rolls for starters(sorry there's no photos, I was too busy eating!) and a Redwoods' Celebration Roast for all of the non-meat eaters, served alongside all the trimmings(brussels' sprouts, roast tatties and parsnips, mashed turnip, cauliflour, carrots) for our main course.

For pudding we had a tasty vegan xmas pudding with squirty soya cream- yummy!

And after that- as if we weren't already well and truly stuffed!- we had this lovely black forest gateaux homemade by Jay's parents, pictured below for you to drool over...

That gateau looks delicious! How was the celebration roast? I've never tried it - thought I have looked at it often enough!

It was all delicious! :)The roast was pricey, but I'd definitely buy it again for a special occasion.
