Forman and Field Hamper

Many thanks to Claire and Lucy at Crumbs for awarding me this fabulous prize hamper from Forman and Field in conjunciton with Knorr. 

I had it delivered to my husband's work and they couldn't resist opening it to ooh and ahh at the contents, fortunately there wasn't anything they could eat or my hamper might not have arrived home complete!

The hamper is full of goodies: smoked salmon, caviar, a 4-5KG Kelly Bronze Turkey, trimmings pack including sausages, bacon, chestnuts and stuffing, a big big of Stilton, seasonal vegetables, some unsalted butter, double cream, a pineapple, 2 apples and a banana (ingredients for the curry recipe that is included), what is described as a 'small' onion but it is HUGE!  There were also a couple of pots, one of curry powder and one of coconut, again for the curry and a pack of Knorr chicken stock pots.

I've dismembered the turkey and have frozen the legs and wings for later use.  I'll cook the crown this weekend and serve it cold as I have family coming for lunch.  The rest of the goodies will be also be scoffed over the weekend.

I've been particularly lucky in blog prize draws over the last few weeks, winning the Short and Sweet book by Dan Lepard, three Moro Cookbooks and Jamie's Great Britain book too!

Thanks very much to all the bloggers who run competitions and to the sponsors who provide the lovely prizes, they are much appreciated.
