    Default Christmas menu???

    So, for the first time EVER I am in charge of food! I'm so excited! I just can't decide which way I want to go...
    We are staying in an apartment 4 hours away so I'm not sure what the oven etc is like. It's only 5 adults and a toddler.

    Eta: I'm doing ALL food for Xmas day!

    So - what's on YOUR Christmas menu?

    This is also my first time hosting Xmas dinner! For DH's family I have to stick to the menu they do every year, which is roast pork with lots of crackling, roast potatos pumpkin and carrots, steamed broccoli and cauliflower, gravy, roast chicken and ham. I would love to do seafoods and salads though so may do that for Xmas day lunch with my family. Will be watching this thread for ideas!

    We're having Christmas Day and lunch at our house.
    We're doing roast lamb and pork with all the trimmings plus side salads. We'll also just have all the normal nibblies and desserts will be things like trifle, grog log and rum balls. All homemade.

    ETA We're hosting for 7 adults, 3 kids and 2 bubs.

    Subbing too. We're hosting the family Christmas tho it's not actually on Christmas day (long story). Everyone brings something. Bil that has to travel will bring two cooked chickens. Sil that does awesome puddings will bring puddings! We'll prob do bbq meats and a salad, vegetarian SIL will bring quiche & her awesome mince pies etc etc etc. we do this every year and rotate between houses so its not a big job if youre hosting

    The only thing I'm sure about is a glazed ham from free range piggy.
    Will also do heaps of veg, green & potato salad, I think I'll make a pavlova as I love them and there will be heaps of berry fruits around then. Lots of cherries.

    We do alot of running around on christmas day but I always take baked treats or a dessert to each house. Usually it's breakfast with my family, croissants, pancakes, chocolates. Then lunch with my extended family, aunts, uncles etc, turkey, ham, chicken, prawns, salads, trifle, pavlova etc.
    Then dinner with il's which is pretty much the same thing.
