I overheard someone mention that they were planning to have a slap up indian meal ( ruby murray ) , instead of the traditional christmas turkey dinner this year.
Are you planning something different or are you a traditionalist ?, last year we tried a capon chicken for a change as i am not a great lover of turkey, but this year have reverted back to having the traditional turkey with all the trimmings.

I must say the thought of a slap up Indian doe's sound appealing to me, but then would it still feel like christmas ?

Have something to contribute?

I'm not keen on turkey either, it is just never moist enough for me, I prefer a chicken cooked in a slow cooker overnight, so moist and it just falls apart, mmmmmmm I love tons of veg too, including sprouts which I can eat at anytime ;) I can and have eaten all sorts for Xmas, I once had a boiled egg for xmas lunch on a beach in Thailand, I bet nobody else on here can beat that :wacko:

Kingo :thumbsup:

Hi balli, A lot may not agree with me but the traditional christmas meal means very little to me, a simple plate of fish and chips or even baked beans on toast would suffice, however the look on my grandkids faces says it all on christmas day for me.

It may be that when i was a young lad my mother and father had little money, and we had to be gratefull for small mercies, how times have changed we now have a duck or pork, but as said above i do not really bother whats put in front of me, i'll eat it.

I love a good old slap up traditional Christmas dinner.... but then again its only a different type of roast so beef or lamb would be just as acceptable :P

I have had both an Indian and Chinese meal for Christmas and it made a nice change.... if its good food then I would not worry what I had or when I had it :)

Got to be a traditional christmas meal for me :D

as much as i like curry it just would not be christmas.

i have been to my works christmas party today we had chinese :chinese: the food was good,
but it did not feel christmasy.

I guess i like the turkey dinner because during the year we dont have sunday lunch
so having a proper meal on christmas day is different for us :newyear: .

I will be cooking Chicken breast fillets wrapped in smoked back bacon and interlaced with cheese strips, with peas, carrots, roast potatoes, baby new potatoes, sausage stuffing balls and yorkshire pudding............with some light gravy.

This will be followed by traditional Christmas pudding smothered in cream then a hot mince pie with a brandy and some coffee:drool:

I cook for myself all year but really love cooking a (nearly) traditional Christmas Dinner :thumbsup:

Any volunteers to come and wash up? ;) :lol:
