Default OT - What's on the menu at your house for Christma

OK - since a lot of us are not able to cruise over Christmas, I was wondering what is on the menu for your big meal. For us at my Dad's place, we are having Prime Rib, baked potatos, whole wheat rolls, sauteed mushrooms, mushroom gravy, salad and rum cake. How about you?

Hi sailinglisa,

For us at Christmas, start with champagne, pate and cheese for appetizers.
Dinner, a Honey baked ham, plum sauce, sweet potatoes, chinese long beans, salad, homemade bread.
A fine wine to compliment the menu.
Dessert are assorted cookies, fudge, and chocolate truffles.

And the best item of all, is the family gathering at the Holidays

For Christmas Eve at our house it's traditional pasta with shrimp and scallops and an orange salad (oranges, red onions, celery, anchovies, olives). When we were kids my aunt would do the 7 seafood Christmas eve dinner. I remember being shocked when I found out as an adult that not everyone did this.
For Christmas dinner at my sister's house we'll have a beef tenderloin on the grill.
I agree it's the family gatherings that are the best thing on anyone's menu.

We normally have prime rib...but since we ate out at Thanksgiving, I wanted to do the good 'ole turkey this year. Still craving the leftovers I didn't have last month!.....so Turkey, dressing, mashed pot. sweet potato souffle, fresh green beans & yellow squash (turnips for Marie) and hot yeast rolls.....all from scratch!!!!...well...I didn't grow the veggies. Dessert will be chocolate shells with a nest of vanilla I.C. and raspberry sorbet.

Gettin' hungry!!!!!

My sisters will be at my house (for a change) and knowing that I don't like to cook too much, my sister from Iowa suggests pizza!!! Not!!! I think I can come up with something better than that, proably will roast a couple small chickens with dressing, gravy, etc.!!! Pizza, even though I'm single I do eat more than pizza!!! :-)

Having Xmas Eve dinner at daughter's house in Delaware. We'll start with Baked Clams, then Beef Wellington and Ham, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Cauliflower in Cheese Sauce, Brocolli baked in the oven with a lemon butter sauce and for dessert Homemade Strawberry Cheesecake. Xmas day we drive back home so I can pack for New Year's cruise. Can't wait!

Have a great Holiday all.

We will start the meal eating festivities on Christmas eve. All our Children and Grandchildren will be here for and early Christmas eve dinner (as well and one son-in-laws parents and sister). We are having turkey with oyster dressing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberry/orange sauce and baby carrots with sugar snap peas. Dessert will be pumpkin and pecan pie.

Our Christmas Day tradition is to start the day off at my oldest daughter Mindy's for Christmas brunch. I bring an egg and ham casserole, her father-in-law brings his famous Oyster Stew, we also have a variety of muffins, cookies and fruit, etc.

In the evening the kids come to our house for spiral honey ham, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, baked beans, cole slaw and scalloped potatoes. Dessert will be pumpkin pie and Pineapple Pecan Cake from the Collin Street Bakery.

The New Year will ring in Weight Watchers...............

Chinese Take-out and a movie.

We have our "do" with the kids and Granny on Christmas Eve.

We have no shortage of "befores" ... pate', brie, crab dip, spinach empanadas and a pesto torta left over from the party last night. Plenty of champagne, too.

I'm seriously considering ziti with four cheeses and a simple salad.

After looking at all of these wonderful menus I feel a bit like a slacker. We decided this year to skip the "big dinner". Every year I have a brunch and no sooner do I get that all cleared away than it is time to start with the dinner so I am serving a really nice large brunch ( sausage & egg casserole, ham, breads, coffee cakes, crepes with fruit filling, scones, fruit compote, etc. ) and then later in the day we are just having honey baked ham sandwiches, relishes, and three kinds of homemade soup. That way I don't spend the day in the kitchen and everyone can have the later items when they want. I'm sure there will be lots of other goodies too so I hope no one is disappointed. We'll have about 20 people. Merry Christmas to all!
