How many of us are having the traditional Christmas Dinner? Anybody having something different or original or completely unusual?.Grin
We are having prawn curry this year, mainly because I am still waiting for my new teeth! Might be lobster bisque to start if we can find an obliging lobster!SadSadSad

A few years ago we had corned beef sandwiches because we just wanted to go completely mad & I like corned beef. (We had something nice on the 26th.)
Happy GFOAM to everybody.

My Norwegian wife's favourite meal is steak & kidney pie (I know, I know...) so I make this every year we are at home for xmas. Accompanied by sprouts and mashed carrot/swede mixture, all washed down with a very decent strong, Norwegian dark beer. Brandy snaps for afters/pudding/dessert, then cheese & crackers, a small glass of port (not too small) then coffee and much burping.

I had a vague idea that Norwegian folk had a Large fish for Christmas dinner! But perhaps this was not true?

Fish (cod) is the traditional xmas dinner on the west/northwest coast, but pork is very popular, too as is lamb ribs.

I believe it was cod that I had in mind. Not so influenced by the Americans as the English! I have Duck today!

As is our habit I cook Christmas dinner, Coquille St Jacques followed by Venison Wellington with Dauphinoise potatoes, cauliflower with cheese topping, peas, broad beans and vine tomatoes (followed of course by Chrissie Pud Smile )

Years ago, before I met my wife, she went to her mum & sister's for Christmas dinner one year. Sister insisted she need only bring herself. Then, repeated offers to help with the dinner were waved off. Eventually she got the scampi and chips started - "Oh I couldn't be bothered with all that so we're just having scampi."

It's now a running joke between my wife and I that scampi is a delicacy and having it at any other time of the year is sheer decadence.
