The meals I serve are based on what is available and how hungry we are. I always ask how hungry everyone is because of all the snack stuff we have around us at Christmas. there's nothing worse than serving up s meal and everyone have stuffed themselves with chocolates and such like. I can't abide waste. When Christmas lunch is at our house we have Turkey and all the trimmings. Any leftovers such as the cold meats and stuffing are brought out in the evening as part of a small buffet as we have found we eat less and less each year. The following day the turkey carcass is stripped bare and boiled to make a delicious stock some of which is frozen. Then into the pot goes any leftover vegetables sprouts, roast potatoes carrots, parsnips, peas etc and some turkey. Any turkey I believe cannot be used up quickly will be frozen to be used another day. The turkey 'jollop' as its affectionately known in our house is left to simmer, thickened slightly and served with freshly baked crusty bread and butter on boxing day. A real NO WASTE recipe that's loved by all my family. Tea time may be cheese and crackers, followed by any dessert we have left. Another meal may be a gammon cooked with mash potato and cauliflower cheese.
