Default Classic Christmas Meal

With Christmas coming up I thought i would ask the question

what is your classic christmas meal?

the meal that brings on the christmas spirit for me is the good ole roast (chicken or pork) with vege's and mass amounts of gravy
and Pavlova as well to top it all off.

im cooking this year for christmas for the first time i may add so im looking for some variety and ideas as well

That would sum up my classic christmas meal. Just add jelly and fruit salad to the pav.

Also a ham on the bone for cold meat for the following week.

The big question is, peas. Minted or not?

I hate minted peas!

Pretty interesting topic
Lunch or Dinner is another question as well,
I prefer lunch to dinner as you can hook the leftovers for dinner up

Love roast sandwiches with some gravy

I'm so excited for Christmas, and it's totally the food getting me pumped.

Big family breakfast at home, huge family lunch at mother in laws, and finally a big BBQ (weather depending) for tea... plus I generally snack in between.

We don't have Trifle at home often as I tend to go a little crazy.

Trifle (no custard powder) with Blackberry Nip is a must.
