This year Christmas is going to be a small, intimate occasion.
Traditionally we do the whole roast and plum pudding. I'd like to do something different this year.
I'm looking for ideas on what to make, so I'm wondering, what's your favourite thing to eat on Christmas Day?

Being italian our christmas is less traditional.
We have home made chicken schnitzel (bread crumbs parsley and parmesan in the coating) with salad and a massive lasagne
I make a trifle for dessert.

I'm having three Christmas eating celebrations (because one is never enough :P)
The first (Sunday before Christmas) we're doing a starter of smoked salmon and asparagus salad and then a baked ham on the bone with potato salad, rice salad roast pumpkin and baby spinach salad and garden salad. Desert I'm making a summer berry tart.
The second (Christmas lunch) is an antipasto platter to start and a roast chicken with pistachio and cranberry stuffing with roast vegies and greens. Mum and I are making individual meringues with summer berries and cream for dessert.
Number three (Christmas night) is a stuffed turkey breast roll, prawns and salad with my MIL's hazelnut gateau for desert.

Coconut king prawns
Bbq lobster tails with lime garlic butter
