    Default Christmas Lunch Ideas

    Awesome ideas!
    Elijahs Mum all that seafood made my mouth water. Yum! I'm thinking prawns with something for an appetiser.

    Antipasto platter is a great idea too, I think I'll do that for when my family pop in to open presents before going to their Christmas lunch elsewhere.

    I think I'm going to try something like this for dessert.

    This sounds delicious. I don't have an ice cream maker, maybe I could use normal ice cream and just let it melt a little.

    Do you bake your own ham or buy it? I've never been game to make cook the ham myself!

    I do a similar layered pav but put melted toblerone spread over each layer and makes it extra yummy

    I do this as a dessert. Sometimes I cheat and buy the chocolate cake already made as well. It's really simple and yummy. http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/2616...ice+cream+cake

    H there, ours is semi-intimate at our place this year (can't wait)- 7 adults, 3 children. Here is our menu:
    1. finger foods during present opening/drinks: cheese platter, caviar and egg tart with dill, oysters with eschallot vinaigrette.
    2. sit down lunch with buffet food table: fresh cut xmas ham, traditional potato salad, baked salmon fillet served cold with watercress salad and pesto on top, prawns with pink sauce on finely chopped iceberg lettuce, beef chippolatas, green beans topped with toasted almond pieces, spatchcock on bbq.
    3. dessert: pudding with brandy butter and cream, icecream cones for kids, and I always make a big glass bowl of tiramisu- refreshing.
