    hello everyone,

    I'm in need of help! I'm having all the family over for the festive season and have Christmas day pretty much sorted, but am struggling for ideas for Boxing Day lunch and dinner. We also have a vegetarian coming too, so want to be accommodating to her.

    What do all you lovely people do on Boxing day? We will be having a buffet on Christmas day eve so am really looking for some "proper" meals for both lunch and dinner.

    Thanks in anticipation .... :-}

    We tend to have Gammon, Cheesy Potatoes and salads etc so will still be having something similar just cutting down the amount of cheese used etc.
    Also bowls of steaming hot chilli con carne always goes down well, I'm not a lover of cold meat so usually go for something hot and scrummy!

    Enjoy whatever you do

    Usually for Boxing Day, I go to my mother-in-laws and end up having 'another' Christmas day foodwise. Ideas for you (that will also include the veggie.............)

    Thick puree carrot and chilli soup (quick and syn free) or ratatouille. Both taste great with chunks of bacon added (for the meat eaters). How about making bombay potatoes or other veggie curries, rice and some tandoori'd meat along side?

    What about a big oven baked pasta? A lasagne/veggie lasagne, macaroni cheese, tuna bake. This can be made in advance and just put in the oven 30 minutes before serving with some salad and fresh bread.

    Think I'd go for a good curry!! Leftover turkey would be a good option!
