Cig Christmas

We normally have beef because I don't like turkey.  We also have a gammon ham and sometimes a chicken.

I usually served up Turkey -- with a vegetarian option for my youngest daughter.

The pudding was always "bought-in".

My speciality was always Dads special savoury chestnuts and sprouts (recipe on application).
Not waiting for the others.

I can't really vote because it tends to differ from year to year.  I spend Christmas day with Delilah and her tribe so it's whatever she decides to make.  When I was growing up it was always turkey, beef and pork.  We always had a home made Christmas pudding from Nain cooked in a muslin cloth.  It wasn't rich enough for my liking but better than a shop bought one.  Mam made her own Christmas cake and that was always the best.  This has brought back nice memories of our old family christmas's :)

Maybe one of the reasons why the traditional turkey dinner is becoming a thing of the past?

I like a traditional Turkey dinner. M-I-L makes the puds, which are always fab! Either side of Christmas dinner day (the only part I like) we are having Chinese Christmas Eve, and roast beef Boxing day. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

I shall be having Lamb or Goat Curry as here in the desert you cant get your hands on many Turkeys, allthough i heard a rummer that some yank may have one in a freezer so we shall see if we can liberate it from him..  8)

I usually make Pine Nutmeat with Herb Stuffing which consists of two layers of moist, delicately flavoured white nutmeat with a layer of green herb stuffing in the middle. Th rest of the family like the traditional turkey but the cranberry sauce. roast parsnip etc go well with the Pine nutmeat as well.

Just been to get my fresh Turkey for Christmas Day, and lovely Gammon on Boxing Day cooked to perfection with all the trimmings by my lovely daughter in law, who happens to be a vegetarian herself................
