Cosmos always used to start these threads, so I'm going to on her behalf. What will you be cooking and eating over the Christmas period? Christmas Eve we usually have a fish soup but I fancy ringing the changes this year. Might be fish pie, might be fish curry, might even just be a nice piece of roasted cod with a glossy mash. We'll see. Christmas Day, we'll start the day with ham and eggs. Mrs909 family tradition. I'll never break it. I choose a smaller portion every year though. Then for the main meal, we'll start with smoked salmon nibbles and then the main will be a roast duck. Stuffing, roast potatoes, roast parsnips, sprouts, madeira gravy. Dessert will be whipped cream with lebkuchen folded though and topped with chocolate. Cheese in the evening if we're hungry. Boxing Day will be kedgeree for breakfast. Then dinner in the evening will be cold ham, garlic roast potato wedges and sprout remoulade. Dessert will be Pannetone bread and butter pudding! And you?
