    Roast potatoes (lots of them so no need for other kinds of potato), sprouts, parsnips, and probably carrots and peas. We don't have starters or a big breakfast.

    Elderly parent insists on doing Christmas dinner but gets the "easy option" from Asda where possible these days so it's entirely possible that instead of broccoli we will end up with a broccoli-cauli pre-prepared pack & instead of peas we may end up with one of those peas-sweetcorn-carrot type mixes too so it could well go up!

    I would like to add roast parsnips too because they are my favourite but nobody else ta the table will eat them so there is no point!

    Mash is a new one on me too!

    Roast pots, peas, carrots, broccoli, green beans & roast parsnips here. Cook up way too many and then have bubble and squeak on Boxing Day with cold meat.

    Nope, never had mash as well as roast potatoes and I can't get my head round cauliflower cheese with a roast dinner (cheese and gravy?) or Yorkshire puddings with anything other than beef and sweetcorn with Christmas dinner just seems wrong - I rate it as a Saturday/midweek more casual veg.
    Over futile odds
    And laughed at by the gods
    And now the final frame
    Love is a losing game

    Lol @ "casual veg": true (although Yorkshires in this house with every roast)!! :rotfl::rotfl:

    i don't get the idea of mash and roasted together in the same dinner either!!

    i'll have roast pots, roast parsnips, carrots, sprouts and possibly a roasted onion.
