What do you eat for Christmas day lunch?

Not everyone eats the traditional Christmas turkey on Xmas day, some prefer beef or a goose, what are your traditional family Christmas eating habits?   I read with interest a recent article where it was suggested that Turkey or Beef was eaten for Christmas Day, Lamb for Boxing Day and Pork for New Year.

We normally have a fiercely traditional Christmas Turkey Lunch and then a cold Boxing Day feast of turkey, ham, prawns, salmon, salads more sausage meat balls, cranberry sauce, bread sauce, egg mayo, mince pies, Stilton cheese board,  Christmas pudding and Brandy sauce, the full festive buffet experience.

Sausage meat balls

Xmas Leftovers, what do you do? cold meat sandwiches, Bubble & Squeak, boring salad!

Can you Eat Healthily at Christmas? well you should have plenty of opportunity for vegetables & your five a day, Brussels sprouts, parsnips, satsumas, clementines maybe even the odd pomegranate with a pin in front of the fire?

If you have not already ordered your Christmas Fayre please take a look at the Paganum Christmas Poultry range, goose and turkey or maybe a lovely rib of Beef or a nice boned & rolled leg of lamb all available now on the Paganum Website.

Christmas gifts, food and wine hampers and much more also available for Christmas delivery in our Christmas Gift section.

And don’t forget to top up the wine cellar from our selection of quality wines.
