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".
Prime rib, twice baked potato, vegetable medley, salad and lots of wine.
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 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
It's looking for turkey, dressing and collard greens for dinner.
Going with lasagna. Probably garlic bread/toast, salad, and prolly throw in a ham. Only got to feed the immediate family as I have no parents left and distant siblings. Nothing fancy
you could always go with.....
probably a frozen burrito.
working all day.
Christmas Eve: Lobster and Pasta with tomato, anchovies and garlic Wine: Villa Antinori

Prime Rib(Lobster for the no meat eater daughter)

Best part I will have both kids here for the first time in about 10 years
Then off to Vegas on Jan. 3rd with daughter, SIL 2 nieces, great niece celebrating her 21st birthday.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Still trying to decide which restaurant in Las Vegas to eat at. I prefer SLS ones, but we'll see.
Christmas eve with MIL pizza deep dish.
Christmas day my mom is making ham and I am making my famous funeral potatoes.
Boxing day dinner with full in laws and presents with those clowns I am making a crown pork roast and shrimp ettouffee.
can you elaborate on the funeral potatoes as i have never heard that term
Turducken, ham, Lasagna to start.
Going to my in laws and my mil makes an awesome prime rib every year
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!
Christmas Eve homemade tamales and chili. Christmas day- spiral sliced ham, green bean casserole, creamed corn ala Rudy's BBQ recipe, mac n cheese fir the grandson, fresh fruit salad, chess pie and whatever other dessert I feel up to.
