We just made our list/menus

For a family of four.

Christmas Eve will be an apero, basically a bunch of finger food and snacks rolled out over the night.
Everyone chose a few things they want each, kids want things like crisps, chicken fingers, little franks etc. Also home made feta triangles, fresh baguette with brie and coloumier and a nice red to go with. Then some home made biscuits and a vienetta for desert.

Christmas Day brunch is crÍpes with a range of sweet and savory toppings, my favourite is to put some ham and a slice of brie on the crÍpe while it is cooking to melt it.

Christmas dinner is a new one for us but hey ho, it will be a curry night.
Start with papadoms with two dipping sauces, probably a spicy onion tomato one and a mint raita thing.
Then 2 main curry dishes, a butter chicken and a Goan spicy coconut chicken. Served with homemade garlic naan.
This will be a lot of work as it will all be made from scratch, no jars of sauce just spices and good recipes. I'll have to start the day before to marinade a chicken tandoori tikka which will eventually be the basis of the butter chicken.
