    £2.63 Christmas dinner: Shop around and a Turkey meal for eight comes in at £21

    daily mail

    yuck, id rather buy decent stuff for such a big day

    the daily mail gets more like the sun/mirror/star every day....used to be an ok paper but its terrible now

    mind you i have rarely bought a newspaper in the last 3 years (used to buy them daily) as they are full of who cares gossip rubbish

    me too, but there are families out there who struggle financially and this might just help them

    Get a happy meal, it's cheaper and it has the present aspect covered also.

    mine even cheaper 0.00p we go to the MIL for christmas day and her dinner is fantastic, loads of different kinds of meat and birds and roast potatoes cooked in goose fat hmmmmmm

    why is this not in deals?

    must cost a fortune last year she cooked for 8 adults and 7 kids ...prob be same this year

    .. or do what we do, go to the local pizza shop on Christmas Day!

    Honestly, its great, means Christmas Day can be spent with the kids playing with toys, no washing up to do either and no making kids come and sit at the table and eat veg. Have been doing this for a couple of years now and it works really well for us.

    Yes, it's the meat that costs!
    A free range turkey is very pricey - I haven't decided what i'm going to do this year. I don't like to buy the cheaper frozen ones as they are generally reared in horrid conditions but they are mightily cheaper.

    We used to get it from our local butchers but wasn't working out worth it … We used to get it from our local butchers but wasn't working out worth it in the end. Also found loads of waste with a full bird so get M&S joints, get a turkey and a gammon usually.



    Good advice dcx.
    I have got a beef joint from the Morrisons offer on now. It's in the freezer. I might just get a chunk of pork as well and forget about the turkey for this year.

    I have 24 people for xmas dinner and it will cost a fortune but would not use frozen turkey

    we dont have turkey...with have chicken, pheasant (2 kinds), duck (2 kinds) and a joint of beef and lamb and some venison

    Wow!! Huge ovens No need to cook again for about 2 weeks after that lot.

    Lasagne can be made with turkey.
