    I'm resurrecting this thread rather than making our regular one go off trail!!

    Please help....I've suddenly got 7 adults (plus kids) to make Christmas dinner for this year. Whilst it will be my only meal with others on the day, it will be after everyone else has had large lunches!

    So what should I make? I'm thinking of keeping it casual, help yourself kind of array. But I still want to make nice food. Someone is bringing ham, but that's it. Here's what I thought so far:-

    - beetroot salad
    - green salad
    - potato salad?
    - bread rolls
    - roast chicken & turkey (prob in oven??)
    - dip with crackers

    Maybe finger foods for kids like sausage rolls, meatballs, crudités and dips?
    Broccoli salad, pull apart bread, dips, sliced ham/meat platter with cheese and thermie quince paste and a dessert- I'm doing a pavlova wreath on the recipe community A plate if shortbread would do though

    Yes - how could I forget the pull-apart bread from the cooking class??!!

    Pavlova wreath sounds interesting, I'll check that out. Thanks Atropos

    Just wanting some help. I'm going to make a pav for Boxing Day. Just curious when I could make the base? Could I do it Xmas eve or is Xmas day better?? I will top it just before I need it but want to do the base as early as possible.

    I'm going to do mine the day before but I think 2 days would be ok, just store it in an airtight container somewhere cool and dark

    I agree. Don't forget you can but pre-made pav bases, so they must keep ok?

    Sounds amazing Atropos!!

    Have you worked out a rough cost per hamper, or total? Would be really curious if you have. No hassle if you don't want to share.

    No I haven't. I could though! It was less about saving and more about wanting to give a homemade gift. I'm doing different sized hampers- some will only have two or three things, others more. I just made a batch if Scottish tablet fudge and will do some peppermint bark too
