Good one Shandy, been doing that for years. Sometimes, I even do two lots to cover Boxing Day as well. They're perfectly all right kept on the side in their panfuls of water or a large mixing bowl.
Nice to hear someone else who does this, thought I was the only one! Happy Christmas. Image

yes thats a great idea, and I normally get the kids involved too. They love to peel the sprouts and help mix the stuffing. However, I ALWAYS stuff the turkey before i open the wine as one year, I'd had a little to much to drink, and never found the stuffing in the turkey the next day, to this day I wonder where it went!

Wishing you all happiness for Christmas Image
