    So, what did YOU have for Christmas Dinner? Traditional turkey? Fancy duck? Can't-be-bothered KFC? Yummy nut roast?

    TELL ALL! Lots of details (not just "all the trimmings")

    My family had steak pie with mashed and roast tatties with gravy along with broccoli and sprouts. My mum made me and my bf sirloin steaks with garlic butter with the same vegs and potatoes they had. It was the best dinner I have ever had, let alone just best Christmas dinner.

    Chestnut and vegetable pie, mashed swede and potatoes, carrots, brussel sprouts and homemade mushroom gravy. Then a (non-Christmassy and random!) Moroccan style serpent cake, but filled with spiced pumpkin mixture as we had a pumpkin that needed using up.

    In my country the tradition is not to eat meat except for fish, so you turkey lovers always surprise me... My family ate salmon, dumplings, pancakes, beetroot soup with mushroom dumplings. And some cakes and the like afterwards

    I'm a non-meat eater hence the quorn. My mum's stuffing and roasted parsnips are the best things I've ever tasted in life!

    Roast parsnips are, indeed, the best! Although, contrary to popular opinion?, I LOVE Brussels too

    A couple of pots of microwavable pasta, iirc.

    Everywhere is closed on Christmas day, I do not have access to a fridge, freezer or cooker, so water from the fountain and the microwave was my best friend :|

    Ah...the joys of being an exchange student, still in the United States over Christmas time....I had a little Christmas eve shopping...at 8.30pm...to get a few pieces of food but, the functional pieces of food were the pasta pots...

    At last, somebody else who loves Brussel Sprouts as much as me! It's about time that they get a positive rep instead of being criticised all time!

    I cooked the dinner for the family this year. We had turkey, sage and onion stuffing, cranberry and hazelnut stuffing, pigs in blankets, devils on horseback, rosemary roast potatoes, honey glazed parsnips, sweet potato mash, and sprouts with red onion and crispy bacon bits. Went down well ... tons of leftovers for the next few days too!

    Yay What else did you have with your Brussels?

    I've always preferred my sprouts to be as plain as possible, so I combined the sweet flavour of honey-roasted parsnips, roast potatoes, carrots (with a drizzle of honey) and a mountain of sausage meat. Worth waiting an entire year for it!

    However, I buy sprouts long before and after Christmas, usually the ones on the foot-long sticks that you can pick up for a pound in Asda. The only thing I dislike about sprouts is pulling them off the stick (which the label fails to declare as an intensive workout!) and peeling them: it's a nightmare if I have to touch a dirty, sticky one! :mad:
