    just wondering how many people are "traditionalists" and are having turkey, or are you having something else ?

    p.s. Merry Christmas

    my mum never does turkey, i think the last time she cooked xmas dinner it was roast beef or gammon or something, so i rarely get the traditional meal. we went to an italian place for our office do, and it must have been the only place in town that didn't have a christmas menu or do the turkey. i'm pretty sure it'll be a similar story in the posh place i'm going tonight, but it's a top menu and my friends don't mind splashing out on the wine and champers so should be a good one.

    actually i went to my dad's club for a meal the other day and that was the proper turkey and stuff, but it's not the same unless it's on christmas day with james bond on the telly afterwards. thank god i've got them all on dvd (twice when the new set turns up next week from hmv)

    god, i'm starving now, time for breakfast!

    Christmas day lunch has to be a Turkey, cooked with streaky bacon on top, which goes nice and crispy!

    Plus, sausages wrapped in bacon.

    I'm gonna have to stop now, i'm drooling on my keyboard. :D

    Well ... perhaps even more ambitious is Hugh Fearnley–Whittingstall's ten bird roast: www.rivercottage.net/SeasonalRecipes/Default.aspx?artid=595&cid=152 ...

    My grandad (god bless his sole) was a very good chef. He always served the turkey with the usual spuds and veg but he also gave use a few plain flavored crisps sprinkled over the turkey, strange combo, but works great :smashin:

    Curry!

    Onion Bhajis and poppadums to start, followed by a selection of M&S curries with naan bread.

    This means we can all go to the pub and then come back and eat dinner within half and hour! no slaving over the stove!

    Great!

    Had chinese one year!

    cheers all
