So the fiancee and I are on our own for xmas/xmas dinner this year. This is our first xmas dinner alone ever, and we both decided we want a romantic xmas and a romantic xmas dinner. The problem is the only thing we' ve planned out is that we are having a roasted lamb leg as our main course. And I have been having troubles finding any ideas on the internet.

I was wondering if you guys had any ideas/recipes in regards to appetizers, salads and/or soups and of course dessert.

I'll even take suggestions on the main course (as long as it isn't turkey)!



Thanks in advance for any help.

GirlfromNWO..

I am not really sure what you are allergic to, but most of this you can make with allergen free ingredients. You can start by creating a theme for your romantic dinner, such as a Turkish or Middle Eastern theme, since you chose lamb. The dessert and soups could match along. I've done that before. Actually, in the Middle East, Muslims often celebrate Ramadan by doing a lamb dinner, which is the equivalent of our Christmas turkey dinner here.

For appetizers you can make tabouleh for a salad or different dips like hummus or tahini (if you're not allergic to sesame). My husband absolutely loves lamb, so I typically mince a few onions with salt and pepper, and cumin (or whatever other spice you like), and I marinade the lamb in it for a full day, then stick it in the oven to roast. For dessert you can try baklava, very sweet (I think it's a heart attack on a plate) but it tastes like you died and went to heaven. For something lighter, try rice pudding with cinnamon. I may have recipes for some of that stuff.

I hope this helps, and have a happy and healthy Christmas.

It was really good. Now that I have more of a base in cooking for my FI I do a lot more creative things. Vegans have really helped me out these past few years. Thanks!
