    @Redcorset, I'm going from memory, as I am not at home. I also don't use quantities, just add a bit more of whatever I think it needs til it tastes good.

    Cranberry juice (but could use a cranberry juice with other berries in it as well if you can find one)
    Pineapple juice
    Tropical juice
    Lemonade and/or soda water (depending on how sweet you want it)
    Some mint that has been crushed (I rough some up and tear it by hand, then chuck it in the mortar and pestle for a little bit
    Ice cubes with (frozen) berries in them
    Fresh mint leaves.

    I am!

    We are having prawn cocktail starter, bbq main with ham off the bone, and potato bake. Greek salad, cucumber salad, bean and carrot salad. Desert is vanilla slice, trifle and white chocolate mud cake.

    I'm buying the bbq meat, nibbles and making the White chocolate mud cake, the rest is being brought by family members.

    My menu is so boring compared to everyone else, but most of mine is the grandparents doing their traditional thing. Not that I mind too much as it means I don't over indulge.

    It's just DH and I for Xmas this year, since we've moved interstate away from family.

    DH is from the UK, so when it's just the two of us I usually do my version of English Christmas for him. I did something similar last year and he loved it.

    So far I'm thinking:

    Roast turkey with cranberry, bacon and walnut stuffing

    Potato, parsnip and pumpkin roasted in duck fat

    Honey pepper carrots

    Green beans pan fried with prosciutto

    Yorkshire puddings

    Gravy

    Cranberry sauce

    For dessert, Eton mess

    Don't think I'll bother with starters - it will be a LOT of food for two people!

    Hell yes! Eton mess! If I'm allowed to make something I'm doing this! Thanks for the inspiration

    I'm just reading along...and drooling! not hosting, we will be at the inlaws who are extremely untraditional. Probably a pasta for lunch like ravioli or lasagne.
