A turkey with all the trimmings for Christmas, ordered from the Marriott


Pumpkin pie to accompany the turkey dinner
last night, in Manila, living a Travelife

Last night in Manila, living a Travelife, we had Christmas Eve dinner at home.

I ordered the Christmas turkey package from the Marriott Hotel in Manila, and I picked it up yesterday. The package was so heavy that someone had to bring it to my van in a large trolley.

The turkey package, which is good for 12 to 15 people, turned out wonderfully.

A NO-STRESS CHRISTMAS EVE DINNER

I was so glad I ordered this, enabling me to host Christmas Eve dinner at home and without the usual stresses of preparing a full-course meal.

I chanced upon Marriott’s turkey package entirely by accident, too.


Last week, I was at the Marriott to have dinner at Cru Steakhouse, and I saw the hotel’s turkey package order promotion on a poster in the lobby as I walked past.

So I ordered it the next day for pick-up on the afternoon of the 24th.

WHAT'S IN A CHRISTMAS TURKEY PACKAGE


This turkey was delicious
The Christmas turkey package of the Marriott was a traditional package complete with all the trimmings.

It came with gravy sauce and cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, assorted vegetables, real corn bread, a pumpkin pie and then an apple pie for dessert.



A PERFECTLY DONE TURKEY

The turkey was perfectly done. I usually like the dark meat of the turkey as this is often more juicy.

But last night, I also had the white meat, and this was really delicious, especially when eaten with stuffing, a mixture of all the sauces, and just a little bit of trimming, on just another wonderful Christmas Eve in my never-ending, and never-endingly eventful Travelife.
