    Well, let's see.


    We'll start with some Jack Daniels.

    That's all I got.

    We're going easy-peasy this year. We're going to do a spiral ham, sweet potato, brussel sprouts and green beans. For dessert, I'm doing a low-sugar, gluten free apple/berry crisp, because that's the kind of party animal I am. We did it for Thanksgiving and it was GONE before the pumpkin pie.

    I wanted to do a seafood feast. I was thinking cioppino, crab stuffed mushrooms, cedar plank salmon, probably a couple veggies. Dan gave me the veto because "that's not what people eat on Christmas".

    Wish I knew the answer to this one... My daughter/husband have been going through the 1st home purchase/closing from hell, which is now 32 days overdue. Original plan was to close on Nov 15, and my daughter was so excited and wanted to break with our life long tradition of Christmas dinner at my Mom's house, and cook her first ever Christmas dinner all on her own, and at her brand new 1st house. Not sure what that dinner would consist of, but the lastest closing date - tomorrow - was just once again delayed as of 5PM today :thumbsdown: Soooo...it's again looking like the traditional trek to my mom's house for turkey, ham, and all the Thanksgiving-like fixings is back on the menu... :santa

    We are very traditional here, turkey, mashed potatoes, mashed turnip, carrots, a couple of salads, gravy, buns and haven't decided what to make for desert yet. All these different menus sound so good.

    This is my niece's year to host (lucky me!) but if I had to guess it would be our traditional meal...turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, lots of gravy, baby carrots, green something - maybe green beans or asparagus - buns, butter, pickles.


    For us Canadians, it's been a long time since Thanksgiving so we're ready for a turkey feast!
