Your perfect Christmas meal....
describe your perfect christmas meal. you can start with what you would have for breakfast, then christmas dinner, then late night snacks etc... it doesn't necessarily have to be what you have in reality, but what you would have if you had the choice.

for me it would be a full cooked english breakfast : bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, baked beans, mushrooms, hash browns, hot and buttered toast and a hazelnut coffee (washed down with copious amounts of bucks fizz)

then for christmas dinner it would be: a prawn cocktail to start followed with turkey and goose, stuffing, roast potatoes, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, bread sauce, baked leeks, green beans, cauliflower cheese, carrot & turnip, yorkshire puddings and lashings of turkey gravy. for dessert it would be hot treacle sponge with custard (washed down with more bucks fizz!)

for late night snacking it would be a buffet of: turkey sandwiches with mayo, chicken wings, hot dogs, slices of different pizzas, sausage rolls, bread sticks and dips, chocolates and more bucks fizz!

i would then be 2 stones heavier, but hey, it's christmas!!!!!!!!!

Dinner with my ENTIRE family. The food is an afterthought. This coming from a woman where everyone gushes over the food that I prepare. Our oldest son will be in TX for Christmas this year and I'm already missing him.

Wow thats a lot of food, but sounds delicious! I would be quite a bit heavier too cheesy

My perfect Christmas meal would be:

Breakfast: French toast or pancakes with powered sugar and fresh fruit

Dinner: Spiral Ham with glaze, Maybe a nice turkey too, my Grandma's homemade dressing, mashed potatoes with a little bit of garlic and lots of butter, greenbean casserole, deviled eggs, corn, homemade rolls and for dessert pumpkin pie with lots of whipped cream and homemade Christmas cookies (an assortment please).

Yummy now Im starting to get hungry again and I just finished lunch!
