Christmas Cheer - Holiday Recipe

I'm joining in with the Christmas Cheer To The Blogosphere link up party with the 4th party theme Holiday Recipe over at Schue Love.

This year I'm having Christmas Eve Dinner with my family at my parent's house and in true Aussie Summer style we're having a cold dinner with fresh seafood, Xmas ham and plenty of salads.

I'm bringing the entree and a salad ... it wouldn't be Christmas without lots of seafood so I'm going to make Crayfish and Prawn Cocktails for the entree something a bit more fancy than the standard prawn cocktail. My friend dives for crayfish so they will be caught fresh just for me!
I usually alter recipes as I'm making them so this is the base recipe I'm using, but I will share the recipe after Christmas with any pointers on whether it was a winner or not!

I am also bringing a salad and my delicious Potato Salad With Mustard Dressing and Crispy Prosciutto should do the trick.

I'm spending Christmas Day Lunch with Mr P's family and everyone brings a dish to share.

This year we are bringing THE TURKEY! Which if you can't tell I'm just a little worried about as I've never cooked a freaking turkey before! While I have visions of bringing a big roasted turkey I know that is not going to happen I don't have hours to cook a bird! I'm going to cheat and go for a marinated and stuffed turkey roll roast much easier to cook and carve. I have bought this Ingham Turkey Roast to trial this weekend in the Webber BBQ to see how it comes out.

My vision
My reality!

Wish me luck!

  1. Ohhh love the look of the cocktail ... its breakfast time as I write this and I could happily swap my weetbix for one of those! I have to make 24 little prawn cocktails tomorrow for the staff xmas party ... I don't think they will be nearly as luxurious as yours.

  2. Yum, this post has made me so hungry! Sure the turkey will be a winner :)

  3. I have to say, that potato salad looks dangerously good!! I think I might have to try this on Christmas day!! Thanks so much for linking up!! :)
