Christmas dinner

Christmas dinner in our family isn’t the easiest thing – with vegetarian and nearly vegetarian, food intolerances and some serious fussiness. But I think dinner for eight (plus one meals on wheels) went pretty well this year.

On the menu was:

Turkey (cooked at Mum’s house due to space limitations)
Quorn cottage pie (for me)
Fish cakes (for very fussy, almost vegetarian first born)
Sprouts (of course)
Parsnips (my favourite!)
Carrots (ready chopped from M&S)
Sweetcorn (for fussy kids who don’t eat carrots or sprouts, but didn’t bother to eat sweetcorn either, what with it being Christmas and everything)
Gravy (yuk)
Yorkshire puddings (mainly for carbohydrate addicted, almost veggie eldest son)
Roast potatoes (cooked in goose fat for carnivores and separate portion cooked in olive oil for veggies)
Stuffing (created from clever M&S mixture thing)
Sausages wrapped in bacon aka pigs in blankets (the only thing my daughter had any intention of eating)

And for pudding:

Rick Stein Christmas pudding (bought in Padstow four months ago and eaten by only three people, one of whom was my elderly neighbour)
Eton mess (a far more popular choice)
Pink Smarties (my daughter)
Munchies (my sons)
All of the above, apart from the Smarties (my husband)

  1. That sounds like a delicious menu. My plate would be filled with yorkshires drowned in gravy!
