Feeling Christmasy

All the Christmas specials are on tellie at the moment, and don’t we just love them.  Christmas came early this year with Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s “A Christmas at River Cottage” and Jamie Oliver’s latest Christmas special.  The entire River Cottage series is just one feel-good episode after another – they always leave us with smiles on our faces.

But last night was Jamie’s Christmas special which showed you what to do with your turkey leftovers.  Now remember I roasted a turkey for the first time this week and there is LOTS of turkey left over.  The winner was a sweet leek and turkey pie – think chicken and leek pie – but Jamie’s tip was to roll our your puff pastry, sprinkle cooked chopped chestnuts and sage over half of it, then fold the non-chestnut bit over and roll it thin again.  GENIUS.

That’s for dinner tonight – will let you know how it goes !

Hmm…I’m not convinced of the pastry – the sage was overpowering (even though I only put a few bits in) and I couldn’t taste the chestnuts…but at least all the turkey’s used up !
