So whats everyone having ?

We try to keep Christmas day for just the 2 of us.

We find Turkey a bit boring and too much.

Until last year, I had always done a full roast (beef, pork, whatever) with ALL the trimmings

But last year OH suggested we have an easy (but extravagant) lunch so we have a seafood platter scallops, large prawns, crab etc. It wa great, not too full and very little washing up.

Can't decide what to do this year yet - just wondered what everyone else does ?


As exam questions often say, discuss!!

Just the 4 of us for christmas dinner and none of us are turkey fans.


OH is having steak

Natalie is having a Lamb chop

Jack is having free range chicken

I can't decide what to have yet, either Salmon or Chicken


I will buy a big free range chicken, cut some for Jack and maybe me then the rest we can have cold in sandwiches.


We are still having all the traditional trimmings. I will pass on the gravy if I decide to have Salmon :lol:


For pudding we usually have a Chocolate gateaux, cheesecake or trifle. I will make all three so they should last until boxing day.

Free range organic cockerel, roast potatoes, parsnips, carrots, sprouts and Yorkies followed by Mincemeat Streusel Cake. I'll make the boys a steamed chocolate pudding as they don't like mincemeat. I'm cooking for the 4 of us, Mum, Dad and my brother. We're hoping to fit a visit to Jimmy's Farm before Christmas to get some of his bacon, sausages and black pudding for Christmas Day breakfast too - best we'd ever had last year :wink: .
