What makes the ideal Christmas Dinner?

All suggestions opinions are welcome.

The only rule is NO YORKSHIRE PUDDINGS WITH TURKEY.

Two of 'the trimmings'; 'all the trimmings' makes for a kind of weird festive tapas.

The ideal Christmas Dinner is not talking about it in the first weekend of November, ffs.

Tenesmus - 03 Nov 2018 11:48:38 (#3 of 772)

Quite. Christmas preparation is done and dusted by mid October.

cozzer - 03 Nov 2018 11:49:29 (#4 of 772)

With the sprouts boiling away?

Filth

One positive about Brexit will be no more sprouts.

SaffronSunrise - 03 Nov 2018 11:59:25 (#7 of 772)

Because they only grow them in Brussels?

Tenesmus - 03 Nov 2018 12:01:22 (#8 of 772)

Well yes. We'll have a proper English Christmas with trees and cranberries.

NO YORKSHIRE PUDDINGS WITH TURKEY.

That's it - I'm going elsewhere for my dinner. You've RUINED CHRISTMAS, AA.

#8

Yuletide if you don't mind.

FleurDuMal - 03 Nov 2018 12:11:31 (#11 of 772)

IT’S ONLY FUCKING NOVEMBER!!!!

Verdigris - 03 Nov 2018 12:18:35 (#12 of 772)

Crimbo ads already on the telly, thoughbut.

FleurDuMal - 03 Nov 2018 12:19:05 (#13 of 772)

They shouldn’t be!

Verdigris - 03 Nov 2018 12:21:12 (#14 of 772)

I was shocked. Only two days after Halloween ads had finished.

Tenesmus - 03 Nov 2018 12:44:35 (#15 of 772)

Looked at the use by date on mince pies a couple of weeks ago. November 2.

FleurDuMal - 03 Nov 2018 12:46:13 (#16 of 772)

One of my colleagues brought some mine pies into work at the end of September!

She was made up to get the first mince pies of the year!

I refused to eat any.

Tenesmus - 03 Nov 2018 12:57:09 (#17 of 772)

Principles be damned, I'd eat free stuff.

RosyLovelady - 03 Nov 2018 12:59:04 (#18 of 772)

A mince pie is welcome at any time of year. Just don't expect me to eat hot mince pies. The heat spoils the pastry and removes the flavour.

Tenesmus - 03 Nov 2018 13:02:05 (#19 of 772)

Carefully warmed with a dollop of clotted cream. Mmm.

Starzatnite - 03 Nov 2018 13:02:23 (#20 of 772)

I love Christmas Dinner, and make a huge one for all the family, including as many trimmings as I can think of. In fact I think I’ll go and put the sprouts on now.
