Win! A Donald Russell Ultimate Christmas Turkey Box


On the first day of Christmas, Domestic Sluttery gave to me... a massive Christmas box and a free range turkey! (That nearly rhymed.)

It just wouldn't be Christmas without us giving away a turkey. But this isn't just any turkey (can you hear our best advert voice?), this is a Donald Russell Ultimate Christmas Turkey Box. This competition prize couldn't be more festive if we kidnapped Santa and popped him in the post. You get a gorgeous free range turkey, a Christmas pudding, some stuffing AND everyone's favourites - pigs in blankets. That's an amazing present to kick off our 12 Days of Christmas competitions!


So how do you win all of this tasty food? Just tell us in the comments below: what are you having for Christmas dinner? Turkey might be traditional, but we know some of you like to break tradition and we want to hear about it! Are you planning on sticking with poultry and having goose or duck, or are you going for something even more exciting? We want to hear about it, even though it's going to make us hungry.

Since it's the first Christmas competition, you'll get an extra entry if you tweet as well. Just tweet "Hey @domesticsluts for Christmas dinner I'm having <insert tasty thing here> #DomesticSlutteryChristmas"

The competition closes at midnight tonight - UK time - and we'll announce the winner (picked totally at random using one of those nifty internet things) in tomorrow's competition - you've got twelve days of Domestic Sluttery Christmas presents to look forward to.

Good luck everyone!

Oh yawn, small print (read it). The competition will close at midnight (UK time) December 3rd. You must be UK based to enter, sorry you lovely overseas readers. If you're anon your entry won't count and if you enter more than once, we'll discount all of your entries and tell you off. The winning entry will be chosen at random and you must claim your prize by the 7th or it'll be passed to someone else. We're not allowed to enter our own competitions but Siany is planning on living on roast potatoes for the next month.

  3. We have a Christmas #1 and a Christmas #2! Christmas number one is usually smoked salmon to start with Turkey and all the trimmings for main, then traditional christmas pudding for dessrt. Though this year I'm making a salmon terrine to start!

    Christmas #2 we usually skip the start and go streight for duck in a plumb sauce with a cheese board to finish :D

    I love Christmas food!!!!!

  4. I'm very lucky and being spoilt this year by the in-laws who are taking us out for Christmas Dinner, so it should be something very nice (especially as I'm not cooking!)

  6. Our lunch this year is going to be just me, my husband and his grandfather. The old guy has had a pretty rough year with illness and cannot leave his home so we are going to him! I will take a turkey dinner for the three of us and warm it up there (I have no faith in his oven!). Strangely, I haven't looked forward to Christmas quite so much in many years! Keep it simple and with the ones you love and it will always be the best!

  11. I get two Christmases this year, one on Saturday where we are having cockrel cooked on the bbq (our family tradition) and then Christmas day will be with the in laws and we'll be having turkey.... Bring on the festivities!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. We like to argue about it until Christmas eve and then just get whatever's left in the local supermarket - the tactic has worked pretty well for the last few years! As long as the roasties are crispy and gravy is lovely I'm happy.

  16. Pulled turkey crown (it's like pulled pork but I'm using turkey breast instead). PLus the usual roasties done in goose fat, loads of veg, chocolate pudding for those who don't want xmas pudding and a great bottle of Bordeaux which my dad bought back from france this summer. Not as glam as tsome of the ones above, but pulled turkey is lovely, trust me.

  18. We do the usual turkey with trimmings, also a ham slow cooked in cola, then coated with maple syrup and baked. A gorgeous duck stuffed with oranges and beef, slow cooked in port. For dessert is a quick and easy home made pumpkin pie with a dollop of delicious cornish vanilla icecream (Lazy sluttery recipe below!). Delish :D

    Easy Pumpkin Pie (makes 2)

    2 sweet pastry cases
    2 medium/large eggs
    1 can of pumpkin puree (available here in the UK http://www.waitrose.com/shop/ProductView-10317-10001-10003-Libby%27s+Pumpkin+Puree)
    1 can sweetened condensed milk
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    1 heaped tsp ginger
    1/2 tsp nutmeg (optional)

    Empty pumpkin & condensed milk into a bowl, mix thoroughly. Add spices, whisk eggs in a mug and add to mixture. Pour into pie cases and cook at 200C (gas mark 5 or 6)for 25 mins then swap shelves for another 10-15 mins. They are cooked when skewer comes out clean. Eat hot or cold with icecrea, cream, custard or whatever you fancy!

  19. I make Christmas dinner for friends the weekend before Christmas every year, and have Turkey and all the trimmings.

    This year I have double trouble!
    I am cooking my first ever Christmas dinner on Christmas Day, my boyfriends parents, sister and grandfather are coming to us on Christmas eve, so it will be my first ever Christmas in my own home. And I will have 6 hungry mouths to feed.
    We are having turkey and all the trimming, including Yorkshire puddings, as they have been part of Christmas dinner since my childhood. Mash, roasts, honey glazed carrots and parsnips, sprouts with bacon and chestnuts and masses of gravy and bread sauce.

    Few of the party like dried fruits, so for dessert it will be Nigelas Clementine cake with a Christmassy ice cream.
    I am SO excited, if a little panicked.

  20. We're feeling rather split this year. My Mum died less than 3 months ago so we're not sure whether to go very traditional with turkey, roast spuds, pigs in blankets and loads of gravy to remember happy Christmases with Mum, or do something completely different, like curry or Chinese, for less hassle and to start new traditions. Better make our minds up soon!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I arrive back from honeymoon late on Christmas Eve so this year I'm letting someone else do the cooking and heading to our local. The menu sounds delicious, but I'm going to be traditional and stick to Turkey.

    ReplyDelete
  22. tempted to break from tradition after a recent thanksgiving meal I attended where someone boiled a ham in cherry coke, before covering it with a cherry jam glaze and cloves... mmmmmmm, sugary....

    ReplyDelete
  23. We are sticking with good old turkey and all the trimmings. I will be adding some Scandi flavours, too, with cinnamon biscuits and spiced Christmas cake.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm helping my ma make dinner this year, turkey, gammon, and the usual trimmings but my faves are cauliflower cheese, parsnips and bread sauce!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Going to my dad's this Christmas for the first time since I was a teenager - and I have absolutely no idea what he'll be serving up on the day. It's a Christm-ystery!

    ReplyDelete
  26. No idea for main but for dessert I will be making giant individual profiteroles filled with salted caramel cream and hot chocolate sauce on the side!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Turkey! Sausages wrapped in bacon! Roast potatoes! Yorkshire puddings! Scurly! My body weight in chocolate and mince pies!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm having turkey, stuffing, chestnuts, cranberry sauce and all the trimmings of course :-D

    ReplyDelete
  29. Cheatin' fake turkey from Holland and Barrett, cause I'm vegetarian! Sounds like the most disgusting thing possible but is actually suspiciously tasty and I'd eat it for Sunday lunch every week if they'd make it all year round, the thoughtless sods.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I don't know yet! Daughter is dithering cos her hubby is not a lover of Turkey, so maybe a big beef joint with the bone on, and she has also looked at the bird within a bird roast, as I am lucky to be having my dinner cooked for a change I am looking forward to having a rest for a change!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. We're having goose and all the trimmings. We have our Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve so we can all enjoy Christmas Day and not spend the day cooking. We go for a swim in the sea at noon (a local tradition)then have drinks in the harbour. We have cold cuts and a bit of a buffet style spread in the afternoon/evening and have friends over. Then we do the same thing all over again on Boxing Day (without the swimming)

    ReplyDelete
  32. This year, we're going somewhat oddball, and having rib of buffalo! (If the butcher we made contact with at the Edinburgh Farmer's Market on Saturday can't deliver that, we'll have venison or hoggett.)
    I rather like the idea of having a rib of buffalo each on the plate, with Yorkshire puds, loads of roasted tatties rolled in seasoned flour, and heaps of locally-sourced vegetables, washed down with a bottle of something rather nice.
    Happy Christmas food planning!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Just going to do the standard traditional on Christmas Day, but on Boxing Day I'm going to make some pizza bases and make x-mas dinner pizza. Cranberry sauce, torn turkey trimmings, stuffing, and some very x-massy cranberry wensleydale cheese.

    ReplyDelete
  34. This year we're having our traditional turkey and pork — no matter how many times we tell my mum (who insists on doing ALL the cooking) that we don't actually want or need the pork, she'll always make it.

    Then we'll have lots of vegetables, homemade cranberry and pomegranate sauce, roast potatoes, mashed potatoes, proper gravy, sausages wrapped in bacon, lots of stuffing and generally enough food to feed us for a week.

    ReplyDelete
  35. This year is the first christmas with my boyfriend and I will be spending it with his family I am thinking they do the normal turkey crimbo dinner, but it could be a surprise

    ReplyDelete
  36. Bizarrely (as a veggie) I'll be having Butternut Squash Jaloufe - it's yummy and very festive tasing in a non-Turkey way. The rest of my clan will be having turkey though being non-veggie and all that.

    ReplyDelete
  37. After initially talking up a seven course Heston-style feast (turkish delight sorbet?!) my other half has come up with a more realistic option of homemade chicken liver pate on sourdough with cranberry relish, prawn cocktail, followed by beef (a huge four-rib) and all the normal bits and then some sort of traditional pud (I'm pushing for the cherry-centred on in Sainsbury's but might get overruled for this one).

    I'm in charge of table decorations and working out how to fit seven people around two tables (of differing height) and most importantly how to keep the cats off the table!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Husband wants turkey. I'll be happy with a bottle of wine... actually make that a box. We're going to break with tradition at breakfast time though, serving up a proper south East Asian Kaya toast set; thick white toast with lashings of butter and kaya, dipped in barely boiled eggs mixed with soy sauce and a Singaporean kopi on the side. I can hardly wait.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Im a stickler for tradition, me. I've been cooking our Christmas dinner every year since I was 15 (so 12 years!) so I've got it down to a reasonable fine art with minimal stressing and lots of time to drink something fizzy with alcohol in it!

    We start with smoked salmon and lovely brown bread with a little bit of salad, then we move onto the turkey (my Mother keeps trying to buy a turkey crown, but its not happening. EVER. Whole turkey or nothing!) with goose fat roasties, parsnips, brussel sprouts steamed and then fried with pancetta and toasted pine nuts, carrots, homemade stuffing, homemade gravy, homemade bread sauce, homemade cranberry sauce. My partner keeps requesting yorkshire puddings but frankly, I couldn't fit anything else in the oven as it is! After several hours of snoozing all of that off, we skip with the christmas pudding and have a tiramisu. I've no idea why we started eating tiramisu as our Christmas Day dessert but it must have started at least 15 years ago and we've stuck to it! Normally pudding is eaten in front of the TV watching something suitably festive while the Christmas tree lights twinkle. Jolly good fun!

    Writing all that out has reminded me just how much I love Christmas and how much I love making Christmas dinner for my family every single year :)

  40. I normally spend christmas with my family and we have the full traditional Christmas Dinner - turkey, pigs in blankets, MILLIONS of roast potatoes, stuffing, veg, and there HAS to be bread sauce. This year I'm going to my husband's family for the first time and they are doing a cold buffet *sob*. I love christmas dinner and the thought of missing out makes me very sad indeed. If I win I'm crossing my fingers a free turkey might change their minds...otherwise we'll just have to do our own Christmas dinner to make up for eating salad on Christmas day!

    ReplyDelete
  41. This year we'll have our usual breakfast of ham, eggs and tomatoes. Then we'll have a three bird roast I think for a bit of a change this year, with roasties, mash (potato and carrot & swede) pigs in blankets, parsnips, cabbage and gravy. No sprouts though, they make me gag. Finish it all off with a baileys hot chocolate and 'Home Alone' :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'm going to be having three traditional turkey Christmas meals this Christmas - starting with my boyfriend and then at various family members' abodes :) It is my favourite meal of the year though so there are no complaints from me!

    ReplyDelete
  43. We'll be having turkey with all the trimmings. And cheese. Lots of cheese.

    ReplyDelete
  44. We're going for a curry this year, nothing says Christmas like a tikka masala and some naan bread - yum! x

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm going to skip the roast potatoes and just have turkey, stuffing, bacon, sausage meat and sprouts ... topped off with loads of bread sauce.

    For pudding, I think I'll have a bit more stuffing, with bread sauce, naturally.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I will be sticking with tradition and having turkey. I just love it. We will also be having stuffinf, pigs in blankets, roast potatoes and all the veg. Topped off with christmas pud and lots of sparking wine. Hope it is a good one for everyone xxx

    ReplyDelete
  47. We will be having roast beef with all the trimmings, and a steady stream of cava throughout the day. Even the dog gets a special dinner - a disgusting liver pate burger thing. She seems to like it though...

    ReplyDelete
  48. Well- my christmas cookie making is set to start next week, sugar cookies, peanut butter blossom cookies- so on Christmas at some point will be eating those. Fresh homemade cinnamon scrolls for breakfast with cream cheese icing- then Christmas lunch- turkey, cranberry sauce, candied yams, beans, roast potatoes, Brussels sprouts, pumpkin pie and yummy fruit and cheese platter- oh I also have ham. This will be my first proper Christmas in the UK- excited it will be a cold Christmas- bye bye stinking hot Christmas in Australia!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Goose, brussel sprouts, cabbage, roasted potatoes, mashed potatoes (my step-father insists on having 2 types of potoatoes even though the rest of us don't agree!) and god know what else this year! Pudding - I hope it'll be something involving chocolate, I don't consider myself addicted to the stuff but someone once told me she had never met anyone who liked chocolate as much I did.

    I once spent Christmas in Tanzania where Christmas Eve dinner was roasted buffalo, ostrich and I think alligator was in there somewhere although it had run out by the time I could have any (it was alligator or giraffe... truly cannot remember!). What a Christmas dinner that was!

  50. After a disastrous month so far- need to completely rennovate the kitchen after a washing machine flood, the roof sprung a leak, our dog, Buddy, had to have a veeeery expensive op on his leg- we're decamping to my Parents' house for the day. So we've offered to make dinner for everyone, including the boyfriend's ham and lentil soup, my butter and bacon roast turkey and the three requested desserts- rhubarb crumble, trifle and pavlova...none of which we've made before. Should be interesting! x

    ReplyDelete
  51. I've decided that this year I'm not spending a day in the kitchen with a veg peeler and a sprout mountain, so we're having giouvetsi with some lovely baked feta, wilted spinach and garlic, and warm crusty bread. That can sit happily cooking away and I get to spend the whole day with my husband and gorgeous little girl.

    ReplyDelete
  52. We're being real sluts, having skinheads on a raft (beans on toast) followed by bananas and custard (instant of course). Full Xmas dinner being cooked by friend on boxing day.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm a stickler for tradition, so it's going to be turkey and all the trimmings for me. AND because I'm clever, I bought a shitload of Hendricks in the summer when it was on offer for £15 a bottle and I've still got two left. So after I've eaten I'll be pickling myself in gin.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Using my Savvy-Mummy shopping skills, I 'll have saved up enough rewards to by a decent Rib of Beef. Any change will be spent on Gin! *hic*

    ReplyDelete
  55. I'll be having my mama's traditional menu - roast turkey or goose, red cabbage, duck fat roasties, parsnips, stuffing, gravy and pigs in blankets - but what I really can't wait for is Boxing Day breakfast - gravy on toast, the best!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Partidge in pear gravy! (Well, more liked poached with mulled pears and cranberries!)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'm sticking with turkey and all the trimmings :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Turkey, its not innovative, but it is delicious

    ReplyDelete
  59. Thai green curry and sticky rice -- it's our favourite, so who cares?

    ReplyDelete
  60. we always have turkey and beef with a vegetarian option and all the trimmings

    ReplyDelete
  61. Turkey and all the trimmings for us.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Something that's not the goose everyone else is having. Which usually ends up as salmon in some form, although I might try and do something different like a caramelised onion tart this year. All the side dishes are fair game though.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I will be having a traditional turkey with maple glazed parsnips & carrots, pancetta & chestnut brussels and roasties.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Half my (vegetarian) family are working this christmas day so I finally get to have turkey - yay!! (even better will be Christmas Butties the next day - bread sauce on bread = yummy)

    ReplyDelete
  65. I'll be having some carrot spoonbread- my housemate made it for a thanksgiving dinner last weekend and it was SO delicious! xxx

    ReplyDelete
  66. We are real traditionalists and it is turkey all the way, although we might slip in some pork around and about. Our real "feature" though is the sheer volume and variety of vegetables we serve along side it. Apparently some people think this might be ... excessive?

    ReplyDelete
  67. Got to admit, we're traditional & we love it! ;-)
    Turkey & roast beef for the hubby, pigs in blankets & naked piggies to, yorkshire puddings for the kids, french onion soup & prawn cocktail & an huge pile of various veggies including sprouts that no one eats, but it's the law!! ( plus if grandad eats one he trumps!!)
    I love every frazzling minute of cooking for 7, & by the end of the day you can see me clutching my bottle errr glass of wine!!!

    ReplyDelete
  68. traditional turkey and all the trimmings!

    ReplyDelete
  69. We'll have the traditional but with stuffed yorksires - you put the stuffing in the middle of the batter
