Roast beef seems a better idea though.

Actually I quite fancy a leg of lamb, but they are soooooooo expensive here!

But I just can't seem to get into the Christmas spirit this year...
I got a Leg of Lamb for $15 well worth it we had 3 days meals from it I cant seem to find a desent cut of Beef for a joint I mean, any ideas? Really miss the good old Silver Side of Beef

We'll be having Leg of Lamb (picked up a week or two ago at Publix for about $20)- I just hope it is good...as we have often found New Zeland lamb to be larger and more muttony/gamey than Spanish lamb (or Aragones Ternasco mmmmm). Also on the menu will be some appetizers-Sepia a la plancha (grilled cuttle fish), Foi gras, chorizo, jamon serrano and manchego cheese thanks to Jungle Jim's.

Turkey all the way baby! Plus I agree about the stuffing here, I prefer it to the stuff we had back home. I especially liked the one a friend cooked for Thanksgiving this year, with crab & cream cheese in it, it sounded gross when she told me what was in it, but it tasted delicious!!!

We will definitely be having turkey and all the trimmings for Christmas, including Christmas Crackers.

We had lamb at Thanksgiving.

your friend's stuffing sounds different for sure, we had one at Thanksgiving with pecans in it....I'm nuts anyway and maybe that's why I love anything with nuts in so we'll be having that stuffing again Dec 25th.....enjoy your turkey

We had turkey for Thanksgiving at our friends house, so it was done the traditional American way of yams with marshmallows, greenbean casserole etc. Christmas I'll be doing the turkey the British way, so it'll be like a completely different dinner.

I'd be quite happy with another turkey but the inlaws are still bored of it so it's most likely going to be roast beef. Starting to get the hang of the yorkshire puddings, which have become a favourite out here.

We will be eating with fiancees parents and since they don't eat meat, I understand Salmon is on the menu - don't have a problem with that. Actually we will then be visiting the other side of the family and there will be turkey on the menu so if I am not too stuffed with salmon can always sample the delights there or can do my own roast dinner another day. I do prefer Paxo but don't have too much trouble with the stuffing here either. Ambrosia and yams!! now that is another matter altogether!! ICK!!

That sounds ominous !!!!!!!!

I'm just glad I;ve still got some packets of decent custard left. I can pour it on my Xmas pud when I get sick of cream.
