have decided for christmas dinner we are going to have a partridge in a pear sauce, but what other takes on the song can we do (realistically)? it doesnt have to be food wise. though maybe 3 french hens eggs if we can find french eggs, but not sure about the rest.

5 Prawn Ringsgrin?!

grin want to keep it as close to the song as possible if i can. besides i think 5 prawn rings might be a bit much in a house of 7 when only three eat prawns.

I'm doing something very similar - using the first 6 things in canapés, goose for main, then the remaining 5 as dessert. The one you may wish to copy are these:

Oh I see, I thought you were going to do something for each of the twelve days...doing it all on the one day is a more difficult, though ToffeePenny seems to have cracked it.
