Our christmas day lunch

I always decorate the table for christmas day.

Here’s how I decorate our christmas table –

This pic is from 2014 when my mum & dad came for christmas lunch.

We have a silver cutlery set which I always get out at christmas, oh how I love it, christmas is the time I can get everything out that I’ve not had a chance to use all year. I can’t be the only person who does that??

We always have 3 courses.

The veg is always pre-prepared the night before –

For the meat, over the last 3 years we’ve been ordering our meat from Morrisons & we’ve been having the pork loin wrapped in turkey covered in crackling. The 1st year we had it, it was amazing but last year it was a little dry!

We always carrots, roast potatoes, roasted parsnips, brussels, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, sweetcorn, pigs in blankets (sausages wrapped in bacon), in christmas 2014 we also had green beans & usually we have mash but I don’t know if we’ll bother this year??? This year, I also want stuffing & yorkshire puds.

I always love the condiments with my christmas lunch but I can’t just stick to one.

The condiments you’d find on our lunch table on christmas day are –

  • Cranberry sauce
  • Mint sauce
  • Apple sauce
  • Salt
  • Pepper

I have a bit of each on my plate (hehe).

I always put the cooked veg & pigs in blankets into our food warmer –

This food warmer is the best thing we’ve bought since we’ve been together, we use it for EVERY party & big lunch we have.

This year (2016) we’re not having our usual turkey & pork joint, we’ve gone for just pork & I can’t flippin wait!!

Our christmas lunch menu this year looks like this –

Starter –

Honeydew melon wrapped in parma ham

Main –

A pork roast ordered from Morrisons (a juicy tender pork loin, lovingly covered in belly pork, coated with a mouth-watering crackling on top). Roasted parsnips, roast potatoes, carrots, peas, brussels, sweetcorn, broccoli, cauliflower, stuffing, pigs in blankets, yorkshire puds & gravy. I ask Richard – what am I missing & he says – oh, I don’t know, the three wise men!! Couldn’t help but laugh! Not forgetting my condiments.

Dessert –

Christmas pudding & custard.

I hope you’ve enjoyed preparing your christmas day menu & I hope it’s incredible.

Bye for now.
