No clue... I've never been outside of North America, So I am of no hope. Maybe around Mid-November, you should start looking in stores. It probobly isn't on shelves yet.

is advocaat not the same thing? We used to buy my Grandad a bottle every year. One year after I had left home he told me he hated the stuff but accepted it graciously lol

We normally have:

Yorkshire Puddings with gravy to start = Yorkshire does it proper way tha knows

Creamy, Lemon & Pancetta Turkey
Roast Potatoes
Mashed Potatoes
Roast Parsnips
Savoy Cabbage
Sprouts
Carrots
Gravy

Then if anyone can move after that, and if I have cooked properly then they will have to wait at least 2 hours to eat anything else - I have a selection of chocolate cake, trifle, christmas cake and mince pies.
A selection of soft drinks, white wine (tho I am liking Ernst and Gallos White Grenache at the moment) Ale and Moniacks mead!

Going to have to look for an alternative stuffing for the turkey this year as mum is allergic to dairy

I love cabbage and jello salad sounds rather tempting!

Yeah, I think eggnog is the same as advocaat (or at least a close cousin!). I think the main difference is that you can't have advocaat without the booze in it!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advocaat

I've found a recipe here, nothing you get get from Tesco or somewhere JOHNOR: http://thefoody.com/drinks/eggnog.html

My Christmas food is normally something like:

Don't generally have a starter, leaves more room for pudding

Turkey & Gammon (ham)
Stuffing
Little Sausauges
A bit of bacon perhaps...
Roast Pototoes
Roast Parsnips
Carrots (from the garden hopefully!)
Peas
Green/runner beans (frozen but grown in the garden during the summer)
Sprouts (yum yum yum, I love em!)
Cabbage
Gravy
Cranberry sauce (oh and in cold turkey sandwiches, ummmmmm)

Christmas pudding
Ice cream
Custard

If you want a 'alt' Christmas pudd, someimes we make a 'sponge pudding' and stick mincemeat and maple syrup (imported from vermont into the mixture. Very Christmassy but quite light.

Dad also always hopes that he gets given a box of 'after eight' mints early in the morning (do you have them in the USA? they're after dinner mints), cos as long as he opens them after eight (am) he can have some (cos it's after eight right?!)
