What food have you still got left over from Christmas Day?

Obviously there's no green lumps of stuffing lurking in the fridge, but...

-there's still a spare Christmas pud (should be mature by now)
-and some turkey giblet stock.

Sadly that's all.

I have a Xmas pud too........but it's from the year before last

A Fortnum and Mason Christmas pud. It serves 16 and the other one wasn't that nice, so I think it will be maturing for a while.

Plus lavendar chutney.

Nothing, but we went to family for christmas. Normally we still have some chocolates left but my OH quit smoking in January so all the chocolates got eaten!

I have two packets of crackers and a bottle of champagne left.

I've still got some vacuum-packed smoked sockeye salmon that my brother brought over from Vancouver. I think I keep thinking I'm gonna save it for some special dinner, but then never get round to opening it.  Maybe I'll just have some dead posh sandwiches for lunch one day.  It's good for five years apparently.

Ooh I didn't think about the booze....I think I have some Baileys left

Weeble: Cook the pud, eat what you want, then chop up the rest and stir it into some rich vanilla ice cream. Pop it back in the freezer, and hey presto! Christmas Pudding ice cream!

I did this trick with some Army rations fruit cake in a tin. It became haute cuisine.

That sounds pretty good, Blisters.  Then you could take the Bailey's, mix it with some grenadine and peach schnapps and wash down your festive ice cream with a brain hemorrhage.

We've got a couple of puds - can't remember when we bought the first one but it has a best before date of June 2001! The other we bought a few years back and has a best before of this month - better get that in a steamer this weekend!

The only remnants of last Christmas are about 4lbs of lard around my waist...

There's smoked salmon in the freezer, crackers and a bottle of champagne left here.

I get given a whole side of salmon at a press do each year so I always cop it up and get it out through the year as I'm the only one who eats it and you can have too much of a good thing!

Christmas pud and a ball of some sort of fruit thing wrapped in leaves could be vine leaves. A jar of putty that will never be eaten and some preserves.

I have an unopened bottle of that green mint liqueur from my 21st birthday. i'm not telling you how old that is.

A bottle of M&S gingerbread cream - sort of like Baileys, but gingery

A mini gluten free Christmas pudding - two in a pack. The first was awful, the second is kept as a grim reminder of the first 

Crumble Christmas pudding into melted chocolate, and form into little balls - et voila! Little Christmas pudding chocolate truffles

Bottle of 12 year single malt, we were way too full to drink it

Just a pud here.  Like the ice cream and truffle ideas, ta

Some crackers.  I finished the chocolates from 2010 last month.

Bottle of red wine and a few unopened presents for the cat.
