HI

I wondered if you had any traditional New Years meal in your house. If so would you be good enough to let me know I am looking for inspiration and actually planning what to buy before venturing to Tesco!!!

So any help would be gratefully received. I need a meat eaters meal and a veggie meal.

Thank you

    Anything seasonal

    You might still get a Goose

    Otherwise, play safe and go for Beef or Pork.

    On the might still get a Goose, if you have time to defrost them Aldis had them in frozen in the one near me, was suprised to see some left on Christmas Eve when I was in there.

    New Years Day is supposed to be beef here depending if anyone feels up to it....or I could just do the Turkey that is in the freezer uneaten from Christmas
    One day I might be more organised...........:confused:

  • I do a big soup-its comforting, can sit on the hob for ages if people are getting up very slowly, and contains tons of veg and fluids to hydrate those with poorly heads. But then I don't have a full sit down New Years lunch-just leave it on the side for anyone who needs feeding.
  • we normally go to my parents where we basically eat another christmas dinner or if we stay at home we have a roast of some sort depending on how we feel from the night before might be a big christmas type meal of just lamb/pork chops,mash and peas.

    My friend bought an Aldi goose, she said it was enormous....and all she got from it was a sideplate of meat.

    We're having beef as we haven't had beef so far this christmas.

    Steak pie! With loads of creamy mash and vegetables :drool:

    My mum is the best at making it, she always add pork links (sausages) to it and it's delicious. Funnily enough though, no one likes it made with beef links _pale_.
