I really love the whole Christmas dinner, I really enjoy roast dinners anyway, and at Christmas when its all a little bit nicer (i.e. more expensive, hehe!) makes it even nicer. My favourite individual things are bread sauce - which we never have any other time of year! - the chicken - we don't have turkey, my mum just buys an expensive chicken from M&S - and the roast potatoes, which my mum somehow manages to make them taste amazing!

We also have this tradition in my family of having croissants on Christmas morning, with butter and strawberry jam. Yummy!

My least favourite, unfortunately, are the main vegetables you have with a Christmas dinner - brussel sprouts and carrots! My mum usually does some other vegetable as well though. Oh and I'm not so keen on Christmas pudding or mince pies - but we have trifle instead!

I'm sure you're all thrilled to know this about my Christmas dinner. haha! I wasn't very excited about Christmas until today, as I had a OU essay which I was finding extremely boring, but I've done that now so can relax a bit. And its not due in until 11th January, so I'm really ahead on the course, which is good as I'm planning to start another one before this one ends! :)

This post has made me hungry :) (Except for the sprouts and carrot which I agree are yucky!)

I do love roast dinners, I remember thinking last year when I cooked Christmas dinner that I really should do it more often! But I've not!

Good luck with your essay!

Yeah I want my Christmas dinner now as well :D I don't know what I'd do without my mum being there to cook such nice roast dinners - when I was at uni I tried a few times to cook a roast dinner for my housemates but it always went wrong in some way, hehe!

I hope I do ok on this essay - as the course is just a general "social sciences" course theres bits which I'm not as interested in and this is definitely one of them! But the next chapters look interesting - I think its going into talking about crime and society, which is interesting :)

I was hoping no one would ask that as I'm not entirely sure, I just know it tastes nice, hehe!

Although heres a recipe which might given an idea: http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/breadsauce_84755

It looks a bit like porrige (argh I can't spell that!), in colour and texture, and you have it hot as a sauce over the meat, and its a mixture of bread, milk, onion, and some herbs. I think its mainly supposed to be eaten with turkey but we have it with chicken as well :)
