    I will have 8 adults and 8 children for lunch.

    We are doing Nigella's BBQ pulled pork, a honey glazed ham and BBQ prawns and scallops.

    Asking 2 other families to bring salad.

    Will do pav with berries and cream and fruit for dessert.

    But most importantly the Champagne is already chilling.

    I've been doing our green salad recently without greens! I use red cabbage instead if green and then add all the usual.
    Spanish onion
    Cherry tomatoes
    Carrot
    Cucumber
    Black olives
    Feta cheese

    My younger brother is hosting this year.

    With 9 adults, three kids.

    Always have platters set out for grazing (read: stuffing yourself before the meal) with:
    Assorted dips (ranch, French, sun dried Tom), crackers
    Cured meats - ham, prosciutto, twiggy/kabana, chilli salami
    Cheese- blue, Brie, cheddar and quince paste
    Pâté
    Sun-dried tomatoes, dolmades, olives, roast peppers, smoked mussels.

    Lunch starts with tiger-prawn cocktails, oysters with nam Jim and fried shallots, bug tails.

    Then cold ham (with apple, raspberry and ginger relish), roast turkey and stuffing + roast vegies and salad.

    Dessert is Summer berry trifle.

    And usually some form of cocktail. I did a sparkling peach schnapps champagne cocktail which went down a treat a few years ago.

    This all makes me so hungry!!!

    We are hosting xmas eve lunch for 8 adults and 2 youngens.

    I think I am going to do
    Antipasto platter
    Bbq chook (from the chicken shop!)
    Roast potato / carrot
    Bacon peas and / or beans
    Crunchy noodle salad
    Yummy bread/s

    And for dessert easy fruit platter

    Then we are going to xmas eve pot luck dinner so have to take a dish... I am thinking a chicken pasta salad (roast chicken breast, pine nuts, sun dried tomato with a basil pesto dressing) because I can prep it in the morning while prepping lunch. There is also going to be enchilada pie, chicken wings, potato salad and not sure what else.

    I am hosting Christmas dinner this year for the first time. Still deciding on final flavours but have everything done for the most part.

    Entrée type food, is just simple ciabatta bread, grilled, drizzled with olive oil and garlic with a couple of different dips. (These I do not know!)
    Home-made salted caramel slice and red velvet brownies.

    Lunch is cold roast chicken (still don't know which flavours), honey glazed ham and a roast pork. Will have mint sauce, mango salsa and apple sauce, all home made.
    And roast pumpkin with paprika, roast potatoes with lemon and oregano and home-made potato salad. (The potato salad annoys me being in the menu, but everyone loves it, so will make it to keep all happy!)

    And then dessert is a black forest trifle.
