hi all,

happy holidays to one and all.

here is the usual bonus ball but with christmas  bells on it prize is a #40139 gingerbread house

question is what is your favourite part of a xmas lunch. if not celebrating just say what you would most enjoy

mine is yorkshire puddings with a sprout in the middle dipped in gravy.

All the best and posting late so that the far eastern places, nz, aus, malasia etc have a better chance 

whatever you you are doing have a great time with loved ones

    I struggle with the annual Christmas dinner with my family and in-laws.   Everybody pretending the shit they received is just what they've been looking for.  Give me a break.  It'seems shite!  Love the morning with my wife kids, but the afternoon is usually a real killer for me when everybody else arrives.

    So, I would have to say the washing up.  I always put myself forward to wash up and clear the kitchen.  Gives me a good hour to recharge the Patience Cells and an extra half an hour if bagsie the drying too.

    I love Christmas dinner, I suppose my favourite part is the bit I never get anywhen else. Pigs in blankets. I dunno though, the yorkshires, the turkey, roast potatoes. Can I just say the whole thing.

    ^Snap! Pigs in blankets. All the family love them. I had them as hot dogs a couple of nights ago, just to check the quality of course :-)

    Ham. I like Ham. 
  • LegogramLegogram PA USAMember Posts: 321
    If we are having ham, then I love the scalloped pineapple.  If we are having turkey, then I can't stop  eating the stuffing. 
  • khmellymelkhmellymel United KingdomMember Posts: 1,306
    At home in Vancouver I really enjoyed stuffing.  Here in the UK it's definitely Yorkshire puddings!

    But the best part now that there are kids around is definitely watching their excitement over everything all day - not just presents!  The food, the people they get to see, and how much crap we let them get away with.  Teaching them how to use their new toys.  It's a totally different type of Christmas spirit and I love the whole day :)

    Ham and the scalloped potatoes

    I'm gonna miss Granny's nacho dip ...

    My favorite part is the meats. Steak. Prime rib. God, I love cows!

    My sister would make a really good sausage roll. Basically (American) biscuits stuffed with sausage and cheese. Yum!

    Jellied Cranberries.  The completely unnatural 'cranberry fart' sound when the cranberries slide out of the can is music to my ears.

    And cheesecake.  Nothing better than a New York style cheesecake with coffee...

    Brandy butter!

    Happy to to have it slightly melted with hot Xmas pudding, but good to eat on it's own straight out the fridge.

    Vietnamese food! We eat crispy roast pork or "Heo Quay" on Christmas Day. Because we're a lot of people in the family, we usually buy a whole pig. It's very good!
  • devilheaddevilhead Member Posts: 283
    Dessert... whatever it may be.
  • CupIsHalfEmptyCupIsHalfEmpty CanadaMember Posts: 547
    Fruit Jell-O. For some reason my grandma always makes this for Christmas and I not so secretly love it. 
  • eggsheneggshen Middleton, WIMember Posts: 590
    I can eat green bean casserole all day. I love that stuff!!!
  • GoldchainsGoldchains Member Posts: 795

    My family's tradition is to have a brunch, so our Christmas meal is actually all breakfast food.  My mom(who passed away this year unfortunately) would always make the best biscuits and gravy.  Fortunately she showed me how to make it myself, but it's just not the same.

    Ham. Doesn't matter what else we're having, be it a traditional roast, or much more sensible seafood & salad (for our 30+ summer temps) I'm happy if there's ham.
  • TXLegoguyTXLegoguy USMember Posts: 125
    Ham, deviled eggs, and green beans wrapped in bacon

    There is something about holiday cookies at dessert! My wife actually loves the cranberry can sauce of sadness. It's still in the shape of the can when it comes out!

    Two words Christmas Ham. The leftover ham for sandwiches, omelets, ....... did I mention Ham?
  • jmeninnojmeninno The Batcave (MA)Member Posts: 1,065
    Hmmm.  Egg nog for a beverage!  And honestly anything home cooked from my parents, as now that I am married, I've gotten used to the wife's good cookin'!
  • starwars4everstarwars4ever The Forest Moon of EndorMember Posts: 489
    Definitely the smoked ham!

    Sweet potato casserole!
  • LittleLoriLittleLori CanadaMember Posts: 154
    We don't eat lunch which is a bonus present in itself as I am usually the cook for most meals. We eat a late breakfast after the presents are open and then join friends for an early dinner. I like dessert best-pie, cookies, cakes and usually try some of each even if I skipped the Brussels sprouts ;)
  • solid_stridersolid_strider TexasMember Posts: 209
    I'm not picky, I'll eat whatever's being served!  Being Filipino, there's usually whole fried shrimp (with the shells, legs and heads) and pork sinigang, a sour stew.  If it's a bigger party, there might be lechon aka roast pig.
  • sklambsklamb speaker of American EnglishMember Posts: 514

    Scalloped oysters. Sadly I haven't had them in several years (since I began doing the cooking!) because I can't manage both oysters and poultry and the poultry feels essential to the spirit of Christmas dinner!

    Genuine canned cranberry jelly comes a close second, though!

    Soppy answer, but the best part of Christmas dinner and christmas on the whole is the wife because without her and her love for Christmas It wouldn't be worth celebrating.

    I'm partial for roasted parsnips we only ever seem to have at Xmas, that or sprouts covered with pancetta and chestnuts!

    Chestnut stuffing.  Not sure how to get rid of the strike through as the screen has stopped responding
