    Mine is no where near that posh! We have a normal Christmas dinner with turkey and haven't decided on pudding yet. Maybe having a starter but depends on time and then cheese board in the evening. I might be having a buffet on Christmas eve as well but if I don't have it then I'll do it Xmas evening. Depends on when my sisters working :)

    Have a lovely day with all the scrummy food!!!

    Christmas will be a little different this year, normally breakfast is smoked salmon and scrambled egg on toast with a glass of champagne but this year it will be soft drink and crumpets for me! Then its a traditional christmas lunch with all the trimmings (all cooked by my mam this year) followed by a choice of dessert. We'll be having left overs and a mini buffet for tea and prob the same on boxing day! I cant wait cos it will be the first year spend with my family for a long time and I dont have to do anything but relax!!

    My family will be having goose with all the trimmings, however I'm fussy so am having my very own turkey (nom nom nom!!) and my OH doesn't like goose or turkey, and won't eat meat with bones, so is having a lamb steak and trimmings!

    Then it'll be choccies, trifle, gatueau etc etc.....

    Tea is on of my faves- buffet type food with chips and anything else we want

    We get spoilt rotten on christmas day, as we don't get much in the year, as my family is pretty much broke...
