Even though Christmas is in our summer It is still traditional to have roast turkey and ham with baked vegetables for main coarse. For dessert we have boiled fruit pudding with brandy sauce and ice cream. A long standing tradition With dessert is finding the coins which are buried inside the pudding.
Oh I nearly forgot, for entree we generally have seafood, things like prawns, crayfish. Lots of lollies and nuts, bon bons, and party hats and not to forget the Champers:burp:

Finished off with a 2 hr sleep in the afternoon.

Merry Christmas to all even you snowcat:thumb:

Ham, turkey, all kinds of veggies & casserols with lots of cheese and enough sweets to kill a moose. :)

We have gatherings of 20 relatives or so. Everybody has a specialty the love to bring.

It's usually Thanksgiving fare all over again.
Unless someone makes a ham.
There always seems to be more appetizers at our Christmas celebrations though.
Go figure.

Wow... You really need to throw away the turkey leftovers from Thanksgiving...

For one family gathering it's a huge roast beef. The other will be ham and all the fixings.

Beef tenderloin, potatoes, veggies, etc. Probably my favorite meal of the year. This year I might miss the meal as I am on call from work (Christmas is notorious for fires, suicides, etc and many in the department will be taking vacation).

This year we will be at our daughters in Colorado for the Christmas holiday. She is an excellent cook and will have some surprise foods prepared. She likes to make unusual dishes and I like surprise food. I do not want to know what the Christmas dinner menu consists of until it is on the table. I suspect she will possibly have ham and prime rib as a part of the main course. As to the other side dish foods, I look forward to some great tasting and interesting surprises. :thumb:

Good idea for a thread. Rep points for you. :thumb: :D

She said she likes the looks of Loralei's Dundee cake, so maybe she'll try that too. :D

You know roast turkey does sound good.. I'm not a big Prime Rib fan. Oh dont get me wrong. I like it just like the next man but for Christmas I like Turkey. I will make a bowl of my "World" famous Cranberry sauce! Any excuse to make that dish! Garlic mashed potatoes and giblet gravy. Home made biscuits with plenty of salted butter, stuffing and yams!
