Our house is always messy at Christmas. Digital dinner. When I grow up, get married, and have my own children, I have prepared a Christmas meal for more than 8 people. Sometimes we invite friends and family. The most important thing to prepare such a grand feast for everyone is timing. Time and practice is perfect, although I admit that I will get into trouble when our traditional Christmas dinner is near time, because there is a lot to do at the last minute, with so little time to do it, of course, at this point your guests sit at the table and relax and enjoy an aperitif before a year's meal. No, I don't want help in the kitchen because it makes me uncomfortable and people always want to talk as long as I don't forget anything in the oven or hot it's OKPlates, causing things to be burned or damaged. It's time to relax when everything is ready. Our Christmas dinner included a turkey and all the decorations. I usually buy a turkey prepared in a frozen oven because you can't always rely on buying a fresh turkey at the last minute and you need to buy it if you want a fresh turkey. You can order one at the butcher's, but he usually takes orders in November and you can forget if you forget to order one. Sausage-3 days before Christmas, when the frozen turkey was taken out of the refrigerator and thawed, preparations for the Christmas dinner began. I like to make sure it's completely unfrozen. When I got married for the first time, I thought it would only take a day to unfreeze, and it was not ready in time, so don't make that mistake again. The morning before Christmas is a good time to open the package and check if it's OK. One year when I was about to cook it, I opened it and found that it had fallen off and could not be used. It was chicken that year. I always keep frozen poultry in the fridge because they are much smaller, so it's much faster to thaw and Cook. I have bought 20 or 22 lbs turkey before but only 5 lbs. 6lb chicken. Turkey takes 20 minutes to cook from lb, plus 20 minutes. However, if you fill in the Turkey and most people do so, you have to add the weight of the filling to the total cooking time. A 20-pound turkey, when stuffed, could be a 22-pound turkey that takes 20x23 minutes to cook = 7. 6 hours so I usually put it in a slow oven the night before and let it cook gently all night. We always have dinner around three o'clock P. M. so it's good-cooked by then. Either so, or get up at seven o'clock A. M. and put the turkey in the oven, there is always a risk of sleeping. So, Christmas Eve is the time to plug the turkey into the metal oven.

One end of oatmeal stuffing and sausage stuffing-Meat at the end of the neck. Mix the turkey with it. Use it to dry without adding liquid. Due to Turkish juice, it will be very wet when it is ready. Wash the Turkey under the cold water in the sink, and then dry a little on the drain. Put it in the tray for stuff. If necessary, sew the filling in place with Turkish flap and needle and thread. You don't want the filling to fall into the tray and ruin the inventory. Then either pour oil on the turkey or rub in some lard so that it is coated with a layer of oil and then sprinkled with salt on it. Cover with tin foil and place in the oven at low to medium temperature settings. At the same time, bring the Turkey to bring the rack to boil in water and salt. Keep you calm for a few hours, but don't leave all night after going to bed. This is a fire risk. The next morning, your home will smell the turkey. Hmmmm! Peel a big pot of potatoes. I allowed 3-4 medium sized potatoes per person. ) And fresh Brussels sprouts so they also need to be prepared. Peel and chop carrots and put them in a salt water pan.
