    Sausagemeat & cranberry stuffing

    The usual, turkey, roasties, whatever veg we got, though it's got to have cabbage because then we can have bubble and squeak on boxing day. Hopefully a little homemade gravy, pigs in blankets, homemade cranberry sauce and bread sauce. A good white or red to wash it down with as well. For dessert I've got to have chrissy pud, but few others like it or can fit it in.
    I've been campaigning to have goose, but my mum says she's a traditionalist (even though goose was traditional before we became Americanised because they had it on Thanksgiving). Also, one goose would not feed all of us so we would have to buy two and that would be too pricey.

    Breakfast is prawns, smoked salmon and cream cheese on small bite-size pieces of toast and Bucks Fizz (although I have to avoid the prawns and Bucks Fizz this year due to being pregnant).

    Starter is prawn cocktail usually - again, got to miss out so don't know what I'll be having instead! Main is meat*, roast potatoes, carrots, sprouts (am I the only one who'll eat them?), peas, sausages in bacon, stuffing. Cauliflour, cranberry sauce and bread sauce also there but I don't eat them. Pudding will be some kind of pavola plus Christmas pudding and cream or Brandy butter. Tea is a selection of leftovers and salad bits, plus breads and lots of my Grandma's baking and a big Christmas cake and cheese.

    Good job I've got the eating for two excuse this year! :D

    * Meat is usually turkey, but as my boyfriend will be there this year and he doesn't like turkey, we're having chicken and lamb.

    I am having duck this year.

    We will have chipolatas with bacon, stuffing balls, carrots, peas, cauliflower cheese, sprouts with bacon, gravy.

    Dunno about starter. I'm in a similar boat to crystal tipps - my usual of toast and pate has been removed from the menu this year. Will make a trifle for pudding, though.

    :yippe: for christmas dinner!

    This year I am feeding 12 so we have got;

    King prawn and avacado salad or asparagus wrapped in parma ham to start

    A bird in a bird roast - Turkey, pheasant, partridge and guinea fowl with apricot and almond stuffing with all the trimmings, pigs in blankets, veggies etc

    Lots of yummy stuff for dessert as my M-I-L is an excellent cake cook!!

    It's going to be interesting as I have never cooked for so many but i'll keep my fingers crossed it will go ok!

    for me it will be prawn cocktail home made style (king prawn), half a turkey, brussels with chestnuts, stuffing, roast potatoes cooked in duck fat, peas and carrots. For dessert, home made sherry trifle not keen on christmas cake. With mulled wine for a drink

    Probably carrots, brussel sprouts, broc, cauliflower, mashed potato and roast potatoes with gluten free yorkshire puddings and lashings of gravy

    Not sure what will be for dessert as yes, something very chocolately with lots of cream - I feel sick just thinking about it :yum:

    How do you get gluten free yorkies? Do you use, like, rice flour or something?:confused:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Nothing as i've made myself feel quite sick, probably till Boxing Day, eating too many marzipan shapes that i was making for the cake !

    Breakfast - Pain Au Chocolate

    Lunch - Turkey - with stuffing, bacon and sausages, roast potatoes, roast parsnips, red cabbage, brussel sprouts (roasted and boiled), cauliflower (I might make it cheese after being inspired by this thread), carrotes, gravey and red current sauce.
