Lifeisontheup2 Sun 18-Dec-16 17:54:05

Kedgeree for breakfast, smoked salmon on soda bread handed round with champagne as a starter then turkey with all the trimmings, xmas pud and brandy butter (already made) with cheeseboard to follow.

HeffalumpsnWoozles Sun 18-Dec-16 17:59:38

Gammon, boiled egg & buttered brown bread for breakfast

No starter but giant roast (lots of pigs in blankets for me!)

1970's val eu vents with leftover turkey 🦃 White sauce with chicken bisto granules added. Sounds grim but is a delight albeit a stodgy one. Sausage rolls, turkey sandwiches & buffet bits. Yule log forced down as we will probably feel sick by then.

Boxing Day is leftovers & Rennies.

gunting Sun 18-Dec-16 18:02:59

Bacon and duck egg sandwiches for breakfasts (DH strange tradition)

Prawn related starter

Late lunch of chateaubriand and all the trimmings

Dinner is usually cheese, crisps, cake, etc

UnicornMadeOfPinkGlitter Sun 18-Dec-16 18:08:16

Dh insists on cooking huge piles of scrambled egg and smoked salmon or bacon on granary bread.

As our dc are older and Late risers this is madness as only just at over three hours later he's then dishing up turkey and the full works then sulks when everyone eats hardly any.

The evening is for picking if you can really manage anything else. But still expected to cook mini quiches and sausage rolls that then spend a week in the fridge before being thrown away. blush

notagiraffe Sun 18-Dec-16 18:22:35

Breakfast is smoked salmon bagels and bucks fizz.

Lunch is homemade artichoke soup, homemade bread and cheese with salad.

We eat Christmas dinner in the evening - no starter - turkey, pigs in blankets, stuffing, parsnips and carrots, sprouts and broccoli, roast potatoes, cranberry sauce and gravy.

Pudding is Christmas pudding or chocolate log.

DC eat chocolates all day long. I never actually see them do this, just the empty wrappers when tidying up.

ivykaty44 Sun 18-Dec-16 18:26:01

Real sourdough bread toasted with jam

A few nibbles and olives running up to lunch at 2.30 ish

Christmas pudding and a homemade Blackforest roulard for pudding.

Supper is a cheese board, biscuits celery and grapes

Boxing day is bubble and squeak with cold leftover meat

EagleIsland Sun 18-Dec-16 18:31:27

Lunch is the usual turkey dinner.

Cheese, biscuits for supper.....washed down with blueberry moonshine

Coffeerun Sun 18-Dec-16 18:33:06

Longdistance Sun 18-Dec-16 18:33:49

Smoked salmon scrambled eggs for breakfast.

Dinner, no starter as I make a huge gammon with crackling, roast potatoes in goose fat, and sprouts with bacon, honey parsnips, carrots, cauliflower, Yorkshire puds, pigs in blankets, stuffing balls with gravy.

Pudding is Xmas pud, and s chocolate trifle.

Later if anyone is peckish, a cheese board with fancy crackers and port to wash it down.

Then cheese and crackers with more Christmas cake and mince pies for me, DC usually have tinned ravioli (some odd tradition we started 6 years ago and it's stuck with them)

RatOnnaStick Sun 18-Dec-16 18:38:51

Brunch, either pastries, eggs, toast, coffee or some form of bacon and egg sandwich job, then a buffet tea at PILs. No roast dinner for us til 28th at mum's house (unless I do some chicken on boxing day)

GETTINGLIKEMYMOTHER Mon 19-Dec-16 00:35:34

Late breakfast of bagels, smoked salmon and cream cheese.

Followed by gallons of Buck's Fizz and various nibbles, no actual lunch (except for any tinies) and trad dinner (usually no starter) at about 5, with lots of roast potatoes, pigs in blankets, Chr pud, a Christmas fruit compote for anyone who doesn't like pud, fruit and cheese.

Later, leftover turkey, plus gammon, salad, mince pies, Christmas cake, etc. for anyone to pick at if they want. But hardly anyone ever wants much later.

PeteSwotatoes Mon 19-Dec-16 00:53:53
