    Default Christmas Lunch

    The Internet has some good sample menus, shopping lists and timings for cooking. I found it helpful to plan my own (ie: 2 days before do xxx, 1 day before do xxx, on the day; 7am, preheat oven, 8am put turkey in (mine took 5 hours to cook) etc etc etc. and have it printed so I could refer to it.

    Default Christmas Lunch

    We are having Xmas lunch at a park this year and its BYO I'm stuck on what to take! I'm pregnant so a lot of yummy foods are out

    I usually do turkey in webber, prawns, oysters, cray fish etc.

    Salads- mix & potato or coleslaw & roast pumpkin/ potato

    Desserts- trifle, pavlova & trad Xmas pud!

    We also have cheeses, fruit, nibbles and do rum balls etc for people to graze on!

    Default Christmas Lunch

    We always do salads - way too hot for hot veggies!

    We have a list of usual things that get delegated each of us and rotate the location from family to family.

    Regular things on our food list:
    Brown rice salad
    Potato salad
    Crunchy noodle/wombok salad
    Honey glazed ham
    Chicken drumsticks
    Lolly trees as centre pieces (my aunt always does them)
    Plum pudding and egg custard for the adults and frog in the pond (jelly cups with icecream and a Freddo on top) for the kids
    Fruit platter
    Pumpkin feta and pine nut salad

    The list goes on.... We have about 40 people at Christmas though so its too much for one person to do, hence we all get given one or two things to bring and have it at a different house each year
