I know ive posted before. I'm hosting.
We will have 5 people plus dd (9 months at Christmas). My brother has downs and LOVES christmas.
I want to do ham and seafood but I want to do something spectacular for my family. My mum can't eat ham so was thinking a leg of lamb?

I'm having all of my family here Boxing Day (minus one sister as she lives to far) so there will be 7 adults, 1 9yo and DS who will be 10 months.
We do totally relaxed!! It will be:
BBQ with sausages, kebabs and some steaks. Might also do some onion and some sweet potatoe. Then salads, green, potatoe, pumpkin rocket feta and walnut, quinoa. Rolls and probably pav for desert. Mum and sister also usually bring any leftovers from Xmas day. It's my favourite part of Xmas and the first time were hosting but should be great with cricket on the outdoor tv, in and out of the spa, then everyone who wants to will stay

Small lunch of chicken(pick up the day before), ham, coleslaw, mixed salad and maybe dad will cook something on the bbq. I refuse to spend all day in the kitchen esp after working that day.
Easy is my motto of the day with christmas now.

Well, I'm not hosting this year, we're headed to MILs instead. There will be 30+ people
So, the only food that I will be responsible for is a dessert contribution!
Thinking I might make three:
A chocolate tart
A sticky gingerbread cake
A raspberry trifle
Yay, an easy Xmas menu this year
