I Need a Christmas Dinner Miracle
- SpellMan Dec 20, 2010 07:41 AM
Our traditional family Christmas dinner just went kaput...for a very good cause. A sick relative has requested that we spend Christmas dinner with her in her retirement home dining room.
So no home-cooked turkey, cranberries or wonderful homestyle fare this year. So I was hoping that I might find a Montreal restaurant that might just offer a traditional turkey dinner just after Christmas. Does anyone know of something like this?
Thanks for the thoughts..and merry Christmas to all.
I agree with your choice to give this lady what might be her last Christmas gift, but why can't you do the traditional Christmas Eve/Christmas Day dinner split? Or have your family meal on Boxing Day?
I can't think of anywhere that does the meal after Christmas. If you are too tired to cook, you could buy a smoked turkey, a duck, or other festive birds fully-cooked.
i feel your pain, SpellMan.
Given that most retirement homes serve dinner early, at around 5, why not spend time with your relative, and go have your Christmas dinner after, or opt for a brunch, such as the one on offer at the Beaver Club in The Queen Elizabeth Hotel? Dinner service runs 'til 9. A splurge, perhaps, but gosh you sound like you need cheering up:
