Anyone bought their Christmas ham yet?

We don’t do that we have BBQ Chickens.

raspberries
cherries
watermelon
kiwi fruit
apples
bananas
spinach
cauliflower
broccoli
oranges
red and green bell peppers
carrots
sweet potatoes
potatoes

They didn't have any grapes! :bawling:

I usually have Christmas Day at my parents house. They usually have turkey on Christmas Day, and sometimes lamb. There are normally left overs, so they finish that off on Boxing Day.

That will do you for this week but what are you going to get for xmas as fruit doesn't last except in a chiller where its kept gassed for anything up to 12mths before they sell them.
How many times do you have to be told there is NO "T" in Minno:D.
Seriously though you could have bought some almond milk and whipped it all up in a Super Ninja to make a great smoothie:rolleyes:

I order mine and the turkey from the Woolies butcher. Pick up Christmas Eve. Both free range of course … :) Together they can be expensive.

I'm not a great chicken eater. But I like Turkey at this time - for a change. Cranberry sauce etc. All the roast veges.

My wife makes a proper pudding and cake - and we always have a prawn cocktail for entrée before the mains. We're a bit traditional on the day.

They must be so popular the grapes.

Red and green bell peppers are they called bullhorn capsicum?

That must’ve cost you lots of money.

Free range would cost you an arm and a leg lol.....

I had free range macro chicken schnitzel the other week without the crumbing and it was not nice at all. I nearly had to chuck it out.

I'll be getting more supplies before Christmas Day. I get to my parents' house in the morning on Christmas Day and help with the cooking. I usually make roast potato and pumpkin, and some boiled broccoli, cauliflower and carrot. I might go to MINNO'S Fruit Orchard next time for supplies! :D

My son's contribution to the day is "eating" and "drinking" … :)

Mind you he probably paid for the wine … and it's always great to have him here.

bubble and squeak sometimes is better than the roast 2 days after.

Xmas leftovers as a kid consisted of a midnight raid to the fridge and making a mashed potato and cabbage sandwich.
I am sticking with the midnight seafood shopping list, a pig out on the day and boxing day on the couch watching the start of the Sydney - Hobart.
