Try a veggie Haggis by McSweeney's .YUM. Goes well with cranberry sauce and all the trimmings

I'm happy with just a plate of veg...not sure what we are having, but obviously must include sprouts, parsnips and roast spuds....think the Mrs is going to make me good old Veggie joke favourite....yes, a nut loaf :lol:

Her indoors does a lovely dish with sprouts...oven baked in a kinda bechamel sauce...with other bits :?

I'll probably faff about in the kitchen for several hours making my favourite champagne sauce to go with everything.

People always ask me what I eat on Thanksgiving and Christmas since I am a vegetarian and I always reply-"Everything but the meat".


that tends to be my stock answer to people who ask the faintly ridiculous "you dont eat meat, then what do you eat?!" question...

Think Im going to aim for something Mushroom based (the standard grown in a shed variety, not the 'ohmigod my arms are turning into caterpillars' variety) and maybe spice it up a little, I will be drunk by 11 a la Jez so it doesnt really matter :)

some great ideas there, I think I may have to combine a few and have a huge Yorkshire pudding with a Fry-up, rice, Gin and cocaine in it. then an afternoon of strip poker with the Queen whilst downing rum and doing mushrooms. Christmas will be fun this year.
