I vote no broccoli

I wouldn't have broccoli on a Xmas dinner

I would say the delivery did you a favour.

Broccoli with Christmas dinner is all sorts of wrong.

You don't need three green vegetables with a roast dinner. Forget the broccoli.

When I mentioned broccoli for Christmas dinner, DH's face was a picture. 'Broccoli? For Christmas dinner? That's not Christmas food????!!' he spluttered! Nobody will notice the absence of broccoli on your table I'm sure.

aw, thank you all grin

I once forgot the roast parsnips!
I am still not allowed to forget it fsad

In our house you wouldn't but that's because there's no celery, cauliflower and marrowfat peas on your list.

The parsnips would be given to the dog

marrowfat peas envy vom wink
oh, cauliflower,
do i need cauliflower?

i probably might do leeks in butter

vvviola Fri 23-Dec-16 14:26:58

I'm pretty sure the parsnips balance out the lack of cauliflower grin

It's amazing the difference in what parts of Christmas dinner are considered essential by different people fsmile

I did get broccoli but it's going into tonight's salmon & broccoli pasta! Sprouts & cabbage are the only green veg needed for Xmas dinner.

TroysMammy Fri 23-Dec-16 14:29:34

Broccoli and gravy, no, it's wrong.

What are greens?

notaflyingmonkey Fri 23-Dec-16 14:31:59

the green you are looking for is brussel sprouts. Waitrose have reduced them to 40p a bag!

You're welcome!

Astro55 Fri 23-Dec-16 14:33:42

What are greens?

Any green vegetable - peas beans etc

KingJoffreysRestingCuntface Fri 23-Dec-16 14:36:34

I'd say 'greens' were kale and spinich.

I feed my bunny 'greens'.

I'm doing broccoli with Christmas dinner.

Broccoli has no place in a Christmas dinner shock

You've done your family a favour there wink

showmetheminstrels Fri 23-Dec-16 14:44:06

NOT any green vegetable!

Patriciathestripper1 Fri 23-Dec-16 14:48:54

Who puts broccoli on a Christmas dinner??😮

ginauk84 Fri 23-Dec-16 14:54:03

We love our veggies and have:

I prefer the veg to the meat so we always have a good selection.

newbeginnings16 Fri 23-Dec-16 15:23:54

Astro55 Fri 23-Dec-16 15:25:54
