We're doing mainly seafood this year. We're with Dad's side which is 10 adults and my 2 kiddies.
Nibbles, cheese, dips etc
Roast pumpkin and beetroot salad
Potatoes and beans
I'm doing a dessert tasting plate with white choc and coconut truffles, dark choc and rum truffles, mini Christmas puddings, choc-cherry cheesecakes and cranberry and macadamia biscotti. So I'm cooking all week!!

I am not doing several fancy meals - I am doing a late lunch, and nibblies and the rest people can organise for themselves. If I am so inspired, I might make bacon and eggs for breakfast... but that'll be the extent of it. lol.
Anyway, for lunch, there'll be only 4 people at my house - fussy DP, my mother who doesn't eat much, my daughter (who is 6 and thus doesn't eat heaps) and me, who eats pretty much nothing. Still, I want a variety of foods and am cooking...
Turkey and sage meatballs with a red currant dipping sauce
Herb-marinated roast beef with a red wine jus
Stuffed roast pork with apple gravy
Oven-baked dinner rolls
And then some salads. WHICH salads I am still undecided upon... I have a few options, but am unsure.

Mini dinner rolls
