    Last Christmas while ramming turkey and all the trimmings down our necks we decided that Christmas dinner this year would be different. No turkey, no stuffing, no sprouts:eek:

    On offer is

    12 Different Christmas Puddings
    served with 12 different flavoured creams/butters
    and washed down with twelve different pudding wines.

    - Hic I can't wait - and for the first time in 10 years we are going to someone elses house so i don't even have to wash up!:j

    Breakfast is always croissants.

    Dinner: We have never bothered with turkey - quite often we will have a duck and a chicken (we eat very little meat and a roast chicken is a once-a-year thing in our house) with all the usual trimmings.

    Starter might be melon *if* I remember to serve it....

    Pudding varies - chocolate and ginger cheesecake or pavlova or homemade ice cream and fruit or.... whatever I plan basically. I try to make it something fairly light after the main meal (but not always) and it is never Xmas pud.

    I have whatever my Mum cooks. Always go home for Xmas day. I do help of course, but it does make things a whole heap easier for everyone concerned.

    Hot Dogs??? For Breakfast??? Are you sure??? ;)

    We dont often bother with breakfast (I know, I know, it's the most important meal of the day, but DH is the only one that eats it) and we usually go to my mum's, his mums, or we have one or other set to us. Lunch at mine or mums is

    Turkey
    Stuffing (paxo with added sausagemeat)
    Yorkshires
    Roast Potatoes
    Roast Pasnips
    Mashed Potatoes
    Sprouts
    Carrots
    Gravy

    With Pavlova for pud. Always used to be xmas pud until i met DH who converted us to his mums way, which is pavlova on Christmas day, and xmas pud on Boxing day.

    On the rare occaisions we eat in the evening it's usually the first slice of Christmas cake, or maybe a turkey roll.
    I'd rather be a could-be if I cannot be an are; because a could-be is a maybe who is reaching for a star. I'd rather be a has-been than a might-have-been, by far; for a might have-been has never been, but a has was once an are – Milton Berle

    Yep, definitely hot dogs for breakfast, in bread rolls with fried onion and ketchup :D

    When DH and I married he took on 2 step children and although we wanted christmas to be normal for them we also wanted a tradition that was solely ours. Someone mentioned that they'd had hot dogs for breakfast last year and we decided that was going to be our tradition.

    So it's been hot dogs for breakfast for the last 6 christmases.
