What do you have for christmas meal
What do you have for christmas meal
Well we go to mums house and usually it's a smoked salmon starter for me, prawn cocktail for DW, then turkey and gammon with Roast potatoes and all the trimmings. I'm fussy and demand "spicy gravy" rather than the dull turkey gravy that everyone else likes and I don't do vegetables but I do love really nice dark roast potatoes with yummy fluffy insides. Probably lots of champagne/asti followed by some awful christmas crackersQuote:

Then whilst everyone else sits on the sofa watching TERRIBLE christmas TV, I'll be on the laptop messing with whatever project I'm working on at the moment. I'll probably surface long enough to watch the DR WHO special.
I usualy go to my sons lentil soup or pāte, turkey roast potatoes,brussels sprouts,christmas pud or trifle.As i am driving not drinking.But when i go home an Innis and Gunn rum cask beer and a nice single malt
A prime rib roast with shrimp scampi is what I like to make however my brother in law bought a new house and has invited us over Christmas for Dinner. My mother had her leg amputated 2 weeks ago and is currently in a rehab facility. I will make her dinner and bring it to her Christmas Eve and celebrate Christmas with her there.
I'm sorry to hear about your Mom, Butterhead1. :( I hope she recovers quickly. It's wonderful that you are going to bring her Christmas dinner!
We are doing 7 fishes for Christmas Eve. Will be having a more elaborate than usual breakfast as the boy's Da has to work. We'll have panetonne, bacon, Indian Pudding, and some sort of eggs with Mimosas. Dinner on Christmas will be a salad of wonderful lettuces (and other bits) that we got at the Farmer's Market, and lasagne.
Dessert for both meals will be an assortment of French cheeses and fruit.
We will be having a quiet Christmas this year, it will just be the two if us for dinner.
I am very traditional so it will be roast turkey, roast potatoes, brussel sprouts, roasted veggies, homemade stuffing followed by Christmas pudding which has been drinking plenty of brandy over the last few weeks :D. Chris likes clotted cream with his but I prefer vanilla custard. I've still got to make that though.
We will clear away and then have a cup of tea with a homemade mince pie :D
We don't have a starter because we like to leave room for pudding :lol:
Totally the opposite of me there.... I always prefer a starter :lol: (which is weird really given I love chocolate)Quote:

We'll be starting with some fresh vegetables (celery, grape tomatoes, cucumber, baby carrots) along with some of Donna's fabulous cream cheese and dried beef dip. We'll also have a cheese and cracker platter. The main course will be standing rib roast with Yorkshire Pudding and fresh steamed asparagus.
Having fore rib roast this year, I'll never be able to eat turkey ever again so next year will probably be a big fat roasted and stuffed juicy chicken. Will be having a lovely beef gravy, goose fat roast potatoes all crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.... slurps... Brussels, peas and carrots and big Yorkshire puddings. No starter as breakfast was enough as we don't usually do breakfast any other day of the year. Tea time will be when we have our dessert because we'll be stuffed from the beef dinner to manage it then.
