    for the first time in 10 years Im having a cold lunch Baking a ham the night before and serving cold ham, and cold roast pork, prawns, potato salad, green salad and fresh home made bread.deserts are pavalova( homemade) and mint slice icecream as well as nuts and rocky road plus a fruit platter There will be 5 of us for lunch and then my DS 18 and his GF for dinner of left overs..( They wont want much as having a huge lunch with her family) ... it feels so weird not to be doing 3-4 different hot roasts and 6-7 different vegies. I still feel like I need more food but really I don't.. I just like to have more than I need lol

    This year there will only be DH & myself as everyone else is coming down for the birth of bub a few weeks(days possibly!) later.

    We normally have a massive seafood feast but seeing as I can't this year we will prob just have a piece of butterflied lamb on the BBQ and salad. With creme brûlée & BBQ'd pineapple with cinnamon for sweets.

    Not very Christmas-y but I am after a fuss free day with loads of mocktails made by DH for me while I lay beside the lake cooling down (only be about 28 but will feel like 40 for this pregnant lady!)

    Drooling! Ours is baked lunch - ham, pork, and one other - varies from year to year, roast veg and gravy. Pudding and custard for dessert. Dinner is always left over meats and some salad, usually trifle or pav for dessert.

    We had our Christmas lunch with the family today

    SIL is Thai so made spring rolls and fried rice. MIL brought ham, I made potato salad, SIL made green salad. (Which I supplied ingredients) and she did the garlic prawns too.

    Desert was ice cream! Haha

    Kept it very simple this year as I just can't do too much the way I feel right now
