    I know its dearer, but would you consider getting one from your butcher or a supermarket organic free range one? They taste so much better and the bird has been well treated (as well as they can be for Xmas reared turkeys).

    I would definitely recommend this. Your butcher can tell you where the meat came from and how it has been reared.

    do you know what, i thought it was just my lot that did that! sometimes i am lucky, they get the pots in the kitchen but put them on the side literally a couple of inches from it! i always say to "him" are you alergic to it or what cos he cant seem to bring himself to open the door!

    At least they make it to the kitchen.

    Me dad enjoys eating his tea in front of the TV in the lounge.

    SO it literaly gets placed NEXT to him on the settee and thats it.

    THe annoying thing is, he goes and gets a drink before he goes to bed, so he could fooking just slot the plate into the machine NEXT to the sink and cordial :wall: :roll:
