Christmas eve is my most favourite day of Christmas so we like to eat something yummy for tea... I need some ideas, were ditching the takeaway this year, but I have no clue what to do... something we can eat from the sofa after ds has gone to bed x

Another mini buffet/party food here (just me and 2DC) things like sausage rolls, mini pizzas, crisps, carrot sticks and lots of dips. I put it all out around 5ish, on the coffee table in the living room and we pick at it while watching a film. Once the DC are in bed I scoff Santaa's mince pies and drink Baileys fgrin

The tradition alway used to be a trip to McDonalds on Christmas Eve but the DC both vetoed that a couple of years ago fshock because they didn't want to go out in case they missed Santa. I liked it because it meant no cooking/washing up but I was outnumbered.

Another cheese fondue here. We started it add a tradition last year and I'm going it'll take off. It's a once a year treat. But I wouldn't suggest eating it from the sofagrin

We now have a tradition of fried chicken on Christmas Eve... five years ago I was (heavily!) pregnant with dd1 and we'd decided to have one last nice meal out together before baby, but couldn't find anywhere nearby serving food late on Christmas Eve, so ended up having a very unromantic evening trudging round before settling on our local fried chicken shop. I went into labour the following afternoon on Christmas Day grin Dp now cooks us fried chicken every Christmas Eve smile

We're having duck rillettes and mushroom pate (I was going to make both but ended up finding them in M&S instead grin) on some nice bread, with a nice oozy cheese and some chutney.
