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!!!!!!!!!

uh oh girl....I think You gon lose Your figure over Christmas....hahahah.....

hers my perfect dinner

roasted chicken/or turkey....I love birds..., with mashed potoatoes and gravy, baked beans maybe some mac and cheese and corn bread (I haven´t eaten any since 1999)

for desert....maybe some ice cream and christmas cookies

of course as drinks....some nice sweet white wine for the dinner...but then....Im´more the beer type of person....so any of the American Beers....or a good Guiness.....later on we will continue to drink....but Strawberry Bowl....I don´t know my grandfather´s recipe....but it´s so delicious....it´s a ton of strawberries, sparkling wine...., white wine and a bit of lemon.....of course....the strawberries have to soak up everything....so You have to put it in the wine and sparkling wine the day before serving.....on Christmas 2003...my Grandfather made it....and strated tasting it in the morning "to see and taste if it´s good enough for his family".....by the time we started drinking....he was already a bit tipsy (he´s the type of guy who becomes funny when he´s drunk....)....it was hilarious!!!

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.

These are the baked beans we eat .They are good with little pieces of bacon and some brown sugar and baked in the oven.



I've never heard of having baked beans for breakfast.

OVEN BAKED BEANS 1 lg. can pork & beans
4 tbsp. ketchup
2 tbsp. light mild flavored molasses
2 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tbsp. breakfast bacon drippings
1/2 to 1 c. chopped onions

Mix all ingredients together and bake at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes.

This is an incredibly fun thread.

I have questions....

First, is this a meal that "you and you alone would cook, buy, serve and clean up alone?"

Or would you be a guest, and others would do ALL the work?

Or, would it be in a restaurant with YOU paying?

Or would you be a guest in a restaurant with OTHERS paying?

I ask because.... I usually do all the work. And - with everything else going on around Christmas.... I can't devote days and days to preparing a feast, the way I could if it were just at some random time during the year.

And, if it were a cooperative potluck kind of meal, it could be more complex than one in which only one person did the work.

OK, I'm done with the questions. For now. He he he.
