Question Your Christmas Eve Meal?

Are you having/do you have a special Christmas Eve meal?

Thanks to the European side of my spouse's family (I have nothing to do with this), my MIL is preparing a "white" meal for Christmas Eve. It's traditional Polish (or is it Catholic. I'm not sure).

There'll be: perch (a white fish), sauerkraut (white cabbage), pierogi, rolls and potato salad. I love all this kind of stuff.

We ALWAYS eat the same... That is, EVERYTHING... All the Christmas goodies come out around 7 ish... Quality Street, After Eights, Nuts, dates, Liq allsorts, proper biscuits, tangerines, more chocolate, Choco Orange, ... Basically, everything and we eat until we feel sick.......

No "formal tea" that night... Go to bed wanting to puke but EVERYONE is up for the British Breakfast on Crimbo morning... This year.. English bacon (from our www.britishbacon.com friends). Hearty bangers (same store), Mushrooms, heinz beanz, Tin Toms, Best quality (for here) white bread for toast. and a cup of PG tips....

Then pig out on the same stuff from the night before...

Then the turkey and.... sorry... I am going on a bit....

Roast beef, yorkshire puds, roast pots etc etc. Then if any room let in our bulging tummys will attack the mountain of goodies my lovely parents in law brought with them from the UK.

By the way....Merry Christmas to one and all
