This year, we are minus many family members to one destination or another so... the few that are left will gather for an intimate get together this Christmas dinner.  The 30+ attendance is whittled down to 7 adults and 3 kiddos!  Sooooo, we were thinking about setting out  "traditional"  (or maybe not so traditional, just yummy and different)  English Christmas fare!  :)  I've done a bit of research but was wondering what those from across the pond enjoyed the most!

So far we're thinking...

a roast of some sort...prime rib, maybe lamb....??  I wouldn't know where to find a goose!

brussel sprouts...roasted with pecans n bacon

plum pudding?

potato dish??

what in the world is bread sauce and do I wanna know??

and again.....what is swede??

I'd love to hear your favorite recipes, fun traditions and ideas!!!  TIA!!  :)

My mother used to make Yorkshire Pudding for Christmas. She and my Dad lived a few years in northern England after WWII and she continued to cook a few British dishes. Although she has been gone for many years now, I remember liking the Pudding but have no recipe. If you are keeping w/a British theme, of course include Hot Buttered Rum and mince meat pie. Have a Merry!

About Me
Well, let's see....I'm 31, 3 kiddos (girl 10, girl 7, boy, 2) & married for 13 years to my high school sweetheart. I grew up in a very small town with my grandma & grandpa, an only child & a tomboy. There's the background, nowadays I'm a conservative housewife. I stayed home for 9 years & then worked for a year or so as a waitress. I was surrounded by teenieboppers...their phones, texting, Myspace, & drama.... Boy was that fun! :o) I quit to take care of my home, kids, & poor neglected husband. 1 year put me sooo far behind! Now I'm addicted to Allrecipes, we hardly ever eat the same meal twice in 2 weeks! :o)
My favorite things to cook
Beef tongue, cuz it's a little weird :o) I get an odd kick out of making mediocre chinese food at home.
My cooking triumphs
Whenever I'm able to make an ingredient from scratch, it's sooo very exciting! You know, the ones we all take for granted...all fully processed & packaged up in their wrappings. I'm always amazed at how simple most of them are to make at home and it always gives me a warm fuzzy feeling to know I pulled it off! Oh, and every time my DH says..."Man honey, this is good!"
My cooking tragedies
Every time I cook it ends in tragedy of one degree or another. I'm really bad about burning myself. I set the oven afire fairly often and am covered in scars from the elbows down. I could get away with murder as I haven't a distinguishable fingerprint to my name. Good thing I'm a nice person :o)
