Hi all

I thought it would be fun to have a thread where everyone can add their "foolproof, fantastic, no fail" Christmas Recipes.

You know - that one you make EVERY Christmas, and that everyone LOVES every Christmas.

Maybe we can all add something new to the Christmas table this year??

Bye!

Goody, are you getting into the Christmas spirit after all?

Sad to hear you don't enjoy Christmas (was you wasn't it?)

My absolute favourite!

Eggnog

12 eggs, separated

2 1/4 cups castor sugar

4 cups whiskey

2 cups dark rum

4 cups full cream milk

4 cups cream, whipped

Freshly grated nutmeg

Beat the egg yolks well; add sugar and continue beating until smooth and yellow-coloured. Slowly stir in the whiskey, rum and milk. Fold in the whipped cream. Whip the egg whites until stiff but not dry. Fold into the eggnog mixture. Transfer to a punch bowl and sprinkle with freshly grated nutmeg.

Serves 20

Yummy, get anyone into the Christmas spirit!!

Yes - I am in fact the Grinch who stole Christmas.

But this year - for hubby's sake, I've decided to make a real effort and try to like it.

He is very into Christmas and being far away from home and family - AGAIN - won't help the situation. So I've decided to go all out. Decorate the tree, eat as much as possible and go caroling etc etc etc.

If you don't hear from me after 25/12 you may assume that the effort has, in fact, killed me.

:hug:

Legal buff, as a christmas addict i am so glad you are coming over to the dark side. LOL! I am sure that you will enjoy it.

In terms of the signature dish i dont have one for the day. We always do the typical roast and veg and lots of pudding. I always cheat and buy a fruit cake from the lions ladies group (Pour brandy over it and it looks homemade!).

But for me xmas is all about baking and i like to bake boxes of biscuits and rusks. I will pull out some of my recipes and post them. This year i am planning to bake home made biscuits for my sons teachers. And then for those who are still in JHB, i went to the Jozi food market this weekend. It runs every saturday in Parktown north and there was a guy selling bottles of spreadable nougat. I mean it is absolutely amazing and you can use it instead of icing on cupcakes! I was in heaven! Bought some (Comes in vanilla, chocolate and coffee). It is like nougat but without nuts and fruit in it. Will let you know how that goes!

Does anyone else have a favourite biscuit recipe that they would like to share with me?

A real quick and easy pud which we do for Christmas and the kids love...

Ingredients

2 litres vanilla ice cream

I packet good quality ginger biscuits

4 flake chocolates

100g cherries

Leave the ice cream to soften but not melt completely. Crush the ginger biscuits and flakes. Chop cherries into quarters.

Mix all together well and then return to deep freeze. If you want to serve "pretty" then freeze it in a glass/plastic dish lined

with cling wrap and can then turn out on a glass cake plate and sprinkle with more flake.

Enjoy - it is so simple but really divine

Next year we can get back into traditions..

I too fall into your Grinch category. DH and kids (of course) are Christmas verskrik! But this year is our last Christmas in SA so I too am going to go all out. We are decorating our house and spending lots of rands on Christmas lights, etc. so that we have Christmas decorations to take to Aus because when we get there in the last quarter of next year we will most likely not have the funds to spend on decorations and I will be back in my Grinch box again... :blush:

Hosting Christmas this year, for hors d'oeuvre we are doing:

Pork-my-Cherries :)

Maraschino cherries

Pack bacon (rashers since they’re long and slim)

Toothpicks

Wrap each cherry up in bacon and secure with a toothpick.

Slap it on the braai and serve as hors d’oeuvre’s

Foolproof decadence ;-) :ilikeit:
