    Great thread which I will read with interest as this could potentially be our last UK christmas for a while so its good to read what you do in Australia.

    We're having:

    Bacon and eggs for breakfast with a glass of bucks fizz


    Prawns to start
    Very traditional British Christmas lunch of roast turkey, roast parsnips, roast potatoes, swede and carrot mash, brussel sprouts, gravy and cranberry sauce
    Mince pie and custard for dessert as me and DS don't like Christmas pudding and my OH doesn't do desserts

    Then turkey sandwiches with the obligatory pickled onions in the evening plus an overdose of quality street or roses chocolate

    Unsure exactly as my Dad is cooking, but scallops for entrée and swordfish for mains. I am doing dessert which will be cake pops

    Dinner
    Whatever I can be bothered slapping together.

    Brekky - crossiants, fresh fruit and berries and yoghurt, and lots of good coffee!

    Lunch - Veggie roast for my DD, my sister and I (the vego's!) and roast chicken, pork belly and roast beef for the meat eaters. Roast potatoes, pumpkin, carrot, parsnip, brocolli & cauliflower cheese, peas and beans, lots of gravy! YUM!

    Dessert - DP's famous berry smash : Smashed up meringues, whipped cream, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, kiwifruit and passionfruit! And my gingerbread in butterscotch sauce with brandy cream.

    CANNOT WAIT

    We are British too, been here 4 years now, hopefully your last cold Christmas. I envy you having pickled onions, the ones over here are just not the same
