What's for dinner for your holiday meal? Main course...
I was going to ignore the damned holiday due to forces outside of my control, but have decided to at least try to cook something special, since I enjoy that. I'll be cooking for 2, one who probably won't even come to the table until hours after it's ready. So...
What are you having for the holiday meal? I'm leaning toward a nice rib roast since they're on sale at Stop and Shop. Also may get a fresh swordfish steak, blacken it and slap it on the grill. DH mentioned a spiral sliced ham, but gads if I never see a ham again it will be too bloody soon.
We have the same thing every year - Christmas Eve, we make tacos and have a veggie tray and stay up real late. Then Christmas Day we do a turkey, stuffing, crescent rolls (quite possibly my fave part of the meal!), etc.
My wonderful neighbor gave me a gift certificate from Omaha Steaks this year. Among other things, I ordered a boneless leg of lamb, which is now thawing in the refrigerator. I'll have that, baked squash and onions and baked yams. I just may have my first real ice cream in a year for dessert.

Not doing much this year, going to braise some chicken legs w/carrots and taters and making enough for two days. Will probably end up at my cousin's before the New Year if it warms up past 0°F and feast on some kind of game.

Mr. PoPo is making sausage lasagne. We're pretty non-Xmas around here so it is just another day. Although the day after we are going to friends' house and Mr. PoPo is making butterscotch pot du creme...mmmmmmmmm.....
