    Yay Ellie, was going to post the same question!

    I'm having gammon (ham) too pricked with cloves, because my Granny always used to do that. Also bread sauce. Think I have to call her for recipes.

    Can't think of anything else for the main course

    I'm so nervous. My inlaws turn their nose up at any English food (apparently we all just eat pies and chips for breakfast, lunch and supper) and my MIL likes to criticize....

    Oh well, Sofia will appreciate it :)

    we usually just have the little sausages on their own as a side extra if you want them! and we also have cauliflour and broccoli in the cheese sauce instead of just the broccoli. :)

    just normal shops! Like food shops, But you could maybe get some nice ones from the butchers? Just in Asda tesco etc, we just have them sitting in a little dish cos we all love them but also dont like the bacon around them, so no point! We also have yourshire puddings.....
