    Not bothered with a starter, much prefer to leave extra room for puddings...…………………………...

    It is a tradition[1] we have allotment-grown sprouts in Xmas day. I go and get them that morning/day before. Fry them with bacon and add a bit of chicken stock.

    This year, we are off to my folks and I am leaving from work on 24th. It will be too dark to pick them that morning. If I keep them on the stick will they keep any better (I work on the theory that home-grown veggies taste good due to extreme freshness as much as anything).

    I could brandish them at passers-by on the trains to get a seat...

    Re starters, we are doing nibbles. Small person won't have the patience to sit at the table for a long meal.

    [1] ok, not a tradition yet, this will be year 3 (and year 2 didn't work). But it will be a tradition, dammit!

    Liking the sound of the cooked cheese options, hadn't really thought of that.

    Really really like the sound of the scallops and black pudding, but unfortunately I'm the only one who likes black pudding and only me and Mrs G doesn't like scallops! What's wrong with people!
    Are y'oroight booy?
