In our house they have a very short life. A box of 6 do well to see 48 hours

We always get a frozen stuffed turkey from Bofrost but we have to order and take delivery of it in early November.
Mince pies never last long in my house. I like having one after lunch with a little ice cream until they have all been eaten, usually before New year.

I buy a small fresh Turkey or a Capon on or about the 23rd in Eroski.

Just bought some mince pies from Dunnes today. Also bought one if their puddings as it doesn't have palm oil in. I had made my own pudding for the first time ever in the slow cooker, but thought I'd better have another for backup in case mine is inedible.

Mark. Try my dads recipe. Mince pie with a good teaspoon of blue cheese on top ( he uses Stilton) . Microwave for up to a minute. Divine.

I´ve told evryone that you can get frozen and fresh turkey everywhere in spain.. but you might have to order it..

they still go and pay 25-30 for one in iceland, cos it says "bernard matthews turkey" on it instead of "pavo" ... :roll: :lol: :lol:

Had a lovely whole Turkey from mucky donnas for 14 euros.

In russels today in torrox and they are struggling to keep the shelves filed due to brexit. They have a notice on the door. Lots of empty spaces
