A delicious Christmas Lunch Menu for 8 people under $100!
This post is brought to you in partnership with our friends at Woolworths.
At Stay at Home Mum we are famous for our $50 Menu Plans. We have the $50 Weekly Shop and have done a Frugal Christmas Menu every year since we started for just $50. But this year, we thought we’d do something a bit different.
There are so many delicious and decadent foods out there (and it is Christmas) – so we thought we would challenge ourselves to set a menu for eight people – as decadent as possible – for $100.00.
And decadent it is! Here’s what we came up with!
Entree and Nibbles – Allowance $25.00:
It is surprising just how much food $25 allows. Now I love a hot nibble – because cheese and meats (unless you are buying a platter) – take time. With these delicious morsels, you just throw them on an oven tray and 15 minutes or so later – your entree is done. Pair them with a few dipping sauces, keep it simple with tomato sauce, sweet chilli and even mayonnaise! Even you have sauces already in the pantry (and most of us already do) – your entree will come in at only $25.00!
- Woolworths Zucchini & Fetta Fritters (Pack of 10) $5.00
- Woolworths Polenta & Parmesan Chips (250 grams) $5.00
- Woolworths Bolognese Arancini Balls (Pack of 8) $5.00
- Woolworths Pumpkin & Harissa Balls (Pack of 8) $5.00
Main Course – Allowance $55.00:
The traditional ‘rule of thumb’ is to allow 200 grams of meat per person. But it is Christmas – and to be generous – we are going to allow 250 grams per person.
- Woolworths Turkey with Apple and Cranberry ($36.60)
- Woolworths Cauliflower & Cheese Bake (400 grams) $5.50
- Woolworths Potato and Bacon Bake (650 grams) $9.00
- Baked Pumpkin (1kg) $1.79
- Fresh beans (340 grams) $4.50
Christmas Desserts (Allowance of $20 for 8 People):
Grab one of the delicious Christmas Cakes from Woolworths – they are priced from $20 – $30. I chose the Custard and Cherry Trifle Cake – and it serves 20 – so there will be plenty of leftovers to eat when the guests have gone home!
