Now when I took the above pix, we all honestly thought it was the 'turkey breast' that one of us ordered (if you wanna know where its from, let me know) for our dinner group of 10. Was pretty much the same group as two years ago. Some little conversation notes of the evening...
"Does the turkey breast have a bone like that?"
"...er...it's only 2kg."
"I thought turkey meat is usually white."
"No, it's like that one."
"That's really good turkey gravy"
"I don't see any stuffing."
Do you see where this is going? I know 10 adults didn't until we got a phone call telling us they gave us a 7kg piece of honey baked (or was it glazed?) ham instead of the 2kg turkey breast we ordered! By then we already ate like 20% of it, all the while thinking it was turkey! As one of us said, "wah, lucky no one here halal!"
Honestly, we all thought turkey breast looked like that. I mean, if we ordered a full turkey, we would know the difference but this was the first time we ordered turkey breast and none of us really knew how the 'breast of a turkey' looked like before it becomes the familiar little thin slices that we always see on our plates. We even went back to their website to see if the order form has any pix of the turkey breast. It didn't or if it did, it wasn't labelled. Some more of the evening conversation...
"That was 7kg?!?"
"I just took what the guy gave me."
"That's a LOT of ham."
"Every year something like this always happens during our Xmas dinners."
"That's really a LOT of ham. Where're the Ziplock bags?"
"I don't care, everyone is taking home some ham!"
Oh, and for dessert we had the very delicious Crunchy Honeycomb Xmas cake from The Patissier. Very highly recommended.
