    Default Christmas menu

    For those of you cooking for Christmas, what is on your menu?
    I know it's too late for inspiration but it's nice to hear what yummy food everyone's eating tomorrow.

    We are having prawn and mango BBQ skewers followed by roast turkey & baked ham. Salads include roast pumpkin and cranberry brown rice salad, mustard potato salad and a couple of green salads. Plum pudding and pavlova for dessert.

    We try to do a mix of traditional and Australian summer and keep it relatively simple

    Sounds great especially the pumpkin and cranberry salad.
    I'm loving cranberry this year.

    We are doing xmas lunch and everyone is bringing a plate. Nothing traditional just food we like:

    I am doing roast pork belly and baked some Christmas cookies with the kids.

    Others are bringing cooked prawn, rice paper rolls, sushi, crab claws.
