    Default Christmas lunch / dinner ideas!

    I just can't wait to eat my weight in food on Christmas Day! It's just going to be us 3 this year for our first family Christmas and I want to make it special with delicious food. I don't know about you but I want some inspiration!

    What will you be making?

    I was thinking a ham, salad, raw fish in coconut cream, pesto and pinenut pasta salad and maybe a potato bake!

    I'm doing a potato bake and a whole salmon with lemon and dill. Taking them to mums house for lunch where we will BBQ the salmon.

    I also want to do a range of sweets like rum balls, biscuits, fudge etc.

    I can't wait either!

    Anyone have any ideas for fancy salads? I want to do some really nice salads as side dishes instead of roast veggies..
