    Bacon, eggs, corn fritters and plenty of mimosas for brekkie.
    Lunch this year is a lime glazed ham, turkey breast with sage and burnt butter, and some kind of pork roast, Prawns on the bbq and then Xmas pudding and fruit. Maybe Pav or cheesecake if I can be bothered! Yay for leftovers!

    We haven't really had a family xmas yet (spent last year in the UK) so it's time for us to start over with our own traditions!
    Thinking:
    Brekky - pain au chocolat with strawberries or similar
    Lunch - slow cooked beef, roast potatoes, stuffing, veggies, yorkshire pudding, pigs in a blanket - cheesecake and an Xmas pud with custard
    Dinner - leftovers in a sandwich if people are hungry and then chocolate and alcohol lol

    It's our first family Christmas so I just want to enjoy the day with no stress! So probably an easy breakfast - ham & pickles on toast which I always have Christmas Day , BBQ for lunch, prawns for snack & cheese platter and then lemon cheesecake for good measure Maybe a cocktail or two when Bub is sleeping.

    My partner doesn't eat them, but I always have ham & cheese croissants for breakfast on Christmas day. It was always the special-occasion breakfast when I was a kid.

    Don't know yet what's happening the rest of the day. We usually spend Christmas eve with one side of the family, and Christmas day with the other.

    We keep ours the same each year. The family loves this tradition.

    Breakfast - ham and eggs on toast with pickle relish

    Lunch - myo

    Dinner - roast turkey with chestnut sage stuffing, roast vegetables (pumpkin, potato, sweet potato), steamed greens, tomato pie, Yorkshire pudding, cranberry sauce, baked ham, pickle relish
    Dessert - trifle, Christmas pudding w hard sauce (brandy butter), jellies w fruit, fruit mince parcels

    It's an epic prep but so yummy!

    I wish I could spread Christmas over two days, but I work boxing day. It's like my family has to eat all their favourite foods in one day. Ideally:

    Brekky-Croissants & Fruit with fresh OJ (This is DH & I having alone time)

    Lunch-Cold cuts, bbq & salads
    (reality is enough roasts, cold cuts & seafood to feed an army not to mention cheese, antipasto, dips, bowls of chips & lollies)

    Dinner-Roast Dinner with the in-laws maybe with a dessert
    (reality is 3 types of roasts with all roast vegetables, punch and about 3 different desserts as well as loads of nibblies)

    I know I sound ungrateful but I just wish everyone would kickback & relax instead of running around sweating in hot kitchens.

    We always have eggs benny or pancakes for breakfast (with cinnamon apples & maple syrup).

    Lunch is usually roast turkey with cranberry and macadamia stuffing, roast veggies, Sardinian beans, ham off the bone, salads, and prawns/bugs etc.

    We always have leftovers for dinner, plus there are plenty of snack foods around (dips etc), and seasonal fruit (mangos, lychees, nectarines). Then we have leftovers again for Boxing Day lunch
