    Looks like a good 'un Bill :xThumb:

    Don't know what we're having - we're booked into a hotel for Xmas dinner & they haven't put the menu out xroll: Apparently it's 6 courses :xblink: but of what we've no idea :xgrin:
    We're camping in their carpark and we get use of the gym & pool Xmas day and Boxing day :xsmile: after 6 courses I think we might need it :xwink:

    We will be at one of my son's for Christmas dinner - it's been booked since July - so will eat "what we are given" . Now that sounds like my dear old Mum when I was knee high to a grasshopper. You know how it was - "You'll eat what you're given" and "Don't do as I do, do as I tell you" and many other 'mother' expressions.

    We will have boxing day with just the two of us and then on Sunday we go to daughters' for another Christmas dinner.

    Have a good one everybody.

    Cook takes the day off on Christmas day, so its left to me to take charge.
    Not given the starter much thought as yet.
    Slow roasted brisket done in the slow cooker over night.
    Pork loin roasted in honey and Guinness.
    Accompanied by roasted sliced carrot and parsnip with roast spuds and mash. Green veg to give colour.
    Have noticed they have suckling pig on offer at the Masymas, so I may give that a try.
    Desert, Chocolate bomb, done to perfection in the halogen oven, just crispy on the outside and soft in the centre, coated with brandy sauce as its the festive season. All served on our patio outside the trailer in Benidorm as of course the sun will be shining.

    Alright for you lot! I suppose we'll nip into Morrison's on Christmas Eve and see what's on the reduced shelf. If we're in luck there'll be a sell by chicken like last year but if not it'll probably be the sausages dressed up with a bit of streaky or even the "basic" sausage meat done in a loaf tin, looks presentable sliced on the plate. We've still got some of the Christmas pudding from a few years back that gets beefed up with some Bristol Cream each year and re-heated. We're poor but 'appy. Have a nice Christmas each n all. :party3:

    And if we don't have bread sauce, it ain't Christmas.

    Just the 2 of us this year. We are starting with a pint at the pub after a walk along the river. We will have roast pheasant breast for lunch with all the trimmings. Not sure to be honest when lunch will take place, we might stop for another pint on the way back :xblink:
    Like @ rangitira we may fit some champagne in to our hectic schedule.:xsmile:

    For the first time in our lives we are eating out for Christmas lunch. We are going to a local restaurant with a group from the camperstop. We don't know the menu yet but it won't be traditional British!

    I'm not sure what I can eat as my dental treatment didn't go to plan:xangry: so might be mashed potatoes in there with lots of gravy.:xwink:

    We have @NickNic around for Xmas lunch, so I will be doing a traditional Cornish Christmas lunch.
    Put a 10lb chicken in a roasting tin and add a bottle of red wine, a bottle of white wine, a bottle of port, a bottle of whisky and a bottle of brandy. Cover with foil and slow roast for 4.5hrs.
    Take out of oven and leave to rest for 30mins.
    Then chuck the chicken away and drink the gravy :xThumb:
