I won't know until I've seen the menu!
I'll see if it's up online and post it.
I picked up the turkey yesterday. It's just the two of us here so we keep things simple.

Honey-roast veg mix (butternut squash; onions;carrots;sweet potato)

Is that just for the two of you, lapin?
Damn. Menu not online, so I'll have to tell you after the event!
But this is where we're going:
This is the third year for us, and it's wonderful.
OK, here goes...
Smoked salmon and watercress salad
Pigs in Blankets
Pork and Chestnut Stuffing
Roast Potatoes with garlic and rosemary
Roast parsnips with Thyme and Honey
Roast Butternut Squash
Brussel Sprouts, Carrots, Purple Sprouting Broccoli and Peas (each with an individual flavoured butter)
Mashed Carrots and Swede
Homemade Cranberry Sauce
Homemade Christmas Pudding with Custard
Foie Gras/Smoked salmon on blinis
Roast pots and snips
Just had a thought...with the exception of the starter, I need to prep all of that tomorrow!
Yes CQ, I'm trying to keep busy and it will do a good few weeks after.
Starter: smoked salmon pate
Main: Slow roast leg of lamb
Sausages in bacon
Maple roast parsnips
Sprouts with gruyere and bacon
Broccoli in cheese sauce
Pudding: Christmas pudding + one or all of the following(!) - brandy butter, baileys cream, clotted cream, brandy butter icecream
Cheese + crackers
With only 2 of us I may have gone overboard - oh well!
Even though I am veggie, I would quite like to go to Pobble's house.
Gosh thinking about all the calories is going to make me come out in a cold sweat but here goes:
Starter: Figs and parma ham with optional mozzarella
Main: Turkey or pork
devils on horseback
pigs in blankets
maple syrup roasted parsnips
Pudding: Heston's orange in the middle xmas pud with cream
To conclude: large pack of rennies!
Smoked salmon to begin
Roast duck, cranberry stuffing balls, carrots, stir fried red cabbage, honeyed parsnips and cranberry gravy - just wondering whether to do gluten free Yorkshires
Christmas pudding and custard
Completely dreading having to cook that lot at MIL's, and facing the washing up afterwards. There will be no help. MIL too poorly, Yorkshire men exactly that-as bone idle as they come! And then SIL, who's a complete control freak will be totally obnoxious when she takes over at supper time!
I hope this is good. According to my Hairdresser there was a run on these and they have been on sale on e-bay for stupid money. Just off to investigate the truth of this.......
Yes when I was in Waitrose the other week a customer was asking for one and the baker just laughed. he said they had got up to £300 on ebay! If only I'd known I would have put ours on!
Roast turkey, creamed swede, leeks, roast parsnip, roast squash, red cabbage, roast potatoes, mashed potatoes, carrots, sprouts, pigs in blanket, stuffing, onion sauce, bread sauce, gravy.
Then a snooze followed by Christmas pudding and cream.
All accompanied by bucks fizz/ champagne/ rose wine.
forgot the brocolli and dauphinois potatoes!
It's useful haveing a son who was a chef - all those veg magically appeared, most of them sorted whilst we were at church yesterday evening!
