    There will be no gravy this year, I'm afraid. Rice, nooden and maybe some seaFOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD.

    It just won't be the same without freezing my balls off at Christmas with my mum's mashed potato that you could smash windows with and veggies that have been cooked for 3 days. It never is.

    But I'll make do.

    I love you too.

    I'll remember to post a picture for you (if the site allows me to do so from my phone).

    At this rate, you'll be able to freeze the chicken in the car if your actual freezer is full of other Christmas goodies.

    We're caravanning again so probably a BBQ or a nearby restaurant. Never really had a fondness for Xmas dinner anyway

    It won't freeze , there will be power cuts. You need to switch to some yams and those everlasting fishballs

    In a warm climate I would go prawns, more prawns, and a ham roast. Don't see the point of turkey.

    I have been fortunate the last 15 years. A family has always felt empathy for the single guy alone at Christmas.

    Christmas is always about kids for me. I never grew up, but usually take a bottle of decent Port as a gift for the host, and a good bottle of red wine for the hostess.

    No fucking awful sprouts, just a packet of bread sauce for me. For old times sake.

    So, the host is on port, his wife is on red wine...and you're on bread sauce?

    Is that with or without a straw?

    I will be roasting a Prime Rib for Christmas. Mashed taters and veggies. Wife will probably have Mama Noodles.

    On New Years we will have Moo Han. 15kg pig on order

    I'm taking Christmas Eve and all of Christmas day off from teaching to prepare a huge meal....prepared over the phone.

    Right now we're having Peri-Peri chicken and veggies with yellow rice delivered and will buy a cake from a shop for dessert. Fook with the cooking and cleaning for the entire family like usual. I might make a lasagna though if I can find some decent cheese.

    Probably rotisserie chicken, flatbread, salad, pickles and lashings of hummus.

    Under a cloudless sky at about 20c, hopefully.
