    Default Christmas dinner ?

    So what you gonna have ?
    Christmas day is a family thing so I'll be having the usual turkey and ham.(I'm not a fan)

    But on Christmas eve we have our own thing and this year we are gonna have Venison, Sweet potato and Baby boiled potato.

    I've done Pheasant, wild boar, guinea fowl and duck before.

    Anyone have any unusual dinners/ideas ?

    We'll be having the traditional turkey and ham, Venision is lovely at this time of year, but I find it dear.

    Tried goose a few years back which I found ok but the family were not as impressed. Sticking mainly with tradition with Christmas breakfast including freshly squeezed OJ and Champaign. Dinner will be at 4 ish. Wine for the day is Savigny-les-Beaune from 1995 and Macon Lungy from 2006 all to accompany the traditional Turkey dinner, brandy laced pud and lashings of Port to follow!

    Yes, I usually go to the Salvation Army on Christmas Day and help cook the meal. It is lovely, we have turkey. As for ideas...I wont be able to go this year, so I am going to go on Christmas Eve and help prepare the food boxes that the Salvation Army give to every old person who attends the Christmas Meal. (They even provide a pet box too) One thing the Sally Army are always short of are people to pick people up to take them in for the meal- If you have a spare hour at all Christmas day why not give someone a lift?
