We'll be in the Lakes in our little caravan so we'll probably do a roast - maybe just chicken thighs for 2 of us with potatoes (boiled and roast), carrots, sprouts (love 'em), parsnips, pigs in blankets. Beer to serve. Telly afterwards. Win.
So who ISN'T doing turkey for Xmas?

Haven't done Turkey for a few years now.
This year is a Spanish theme.
Heuvos rancheros for breakfast (I know it's Mexican, but close enough).
Various tapas to start, slow roast leg of lamb (or goat if I can get it) with a bean stew, and churros with chocolate sauces for pudding.
I love turkey, but the kids are still young and fussy so we'll just give them something they'll eat and we're getting some frozen ready meal roast dinners. It'll mean the mrs can have a rest in the morning too, instead of faffing about in the kitchen like the lays few years.
Bollocks to that - I'm 46 and had it every year since ever, that's traditional enough for me
I'm 40 and not had turkey at Xmas for 18 years at least and often didn't as a kid.
As kids, we used to go to the grandparents for Christmas. They were friends with a guy who ran a turkey farm and he always gave them a massive turkey.
It meant turkey every day for a week. Sandwiches, cold roast, turkey stew, casserole. God it was awful.
So when they became too old/ill to really 'do' Christmas, it was quite a relief. We normally have venison now but we've had pheasant or duck on a few occasions.
