own  meal while sitting around the tabel

You can use  everything you like to  bake.

Cheese - onion - paprika - little tomatos - little patato

Water and bread !



No i am joking Wink

I have to work 3 nightshifts, and at work we do get a real good meal.

Mostly its delivered by a fine restaurant. (They bring it in special fridges).

I will take a picture this night and post it in this topic.

Also at work because we get free meals , we also donate money for a good purpose. ( this year it was for Malaria victims)  ( @Hanneke have you seen the glas/mirror house in Groningen ? )

@ Hanneke. Nice topic! i love gourmetten, en fondueén. Keeps you busy while eating.

We have influences both from Sweden and Russia considering food.

On Christmas eve dinner we´ll start with different kind of fish like herring in different kind of sauces, raw salted salmon, my husband smokes trout and three kind of roes. Then we move to ham( I don´t eat red meat), carrot-,mashed potato- and rutabaga casserole. As a dessert we have cranberry soup with whipped cream. As drink we have sparkling wine and other wines and later coffee and cognac. Our son in law takes care always of drinks and he travels a lot so he always has some surprise with drinks. On Christmas Day we have partly the same menu, this time we have crawfish cake as a starter and as a dessert typical American pumpkin pie. On Chr. eve we get an original Santa Claus as a visitor. We sing for him and he gives gifts to us. This happens still because of our grand children. I have to go to the kitchen to continue of preparing the menu...

Roast turkey, cornbread dressing, gravy, ham, broccoli rice casserole, potato salad, green bean casserole, English pea salad, green salad, canned cranberry sauce. (I've tried many recipes of homemade cranberry sauce and have never found one to compete with the can, lol.) To help stuff all of the above into our mouths...dinner rolls.

Pecan pies, banana pudding, mincemeat pie, mandarin orange salad, chocolate chip cookies (my sister ALMOST burns a batch, just for me).

Mine is very similar to Penny's, though we have a seafood starter, this year it's a concoction of crab, prawns, smoked salmon & smoked mackerel! And then the traditional roast turkey and ham, with all the veg, plus my favourite, pigs in blankets Smiling and then Christmas pud and brandy cream for those who like it (not me) and this year the alternative pud is vanilla ice cream with hot choc sauce, with crushed merangue, fresh raspberries and crumbled bits of ferrero rocher choccies! Plus plenty of wine, fizz & snowballs Smiling

That sounds great Hanneke!

We are having traditional roast turkey, ham, stuffing balls, chipolatas with bacon and lots of different vegetables - roast potatoes, parsnips, red cabbage, carrots, peas and brussels sprouts which I do in a light cheese sauce. I also make bread sauce and cranberry sauce and we finish off with Christmas pudding with custard or cream and a Pavlova (meringue). I will also do a cheese platter.

Edit to add - seeing Claire's menu, we usually have starters but the whole family have said that this year we will give it a miss because it's too much!!  I also forgot to add bubbly, wine and soft drinks for those who want them!
