    Christmas eve is fondue, Christmas day is turkey and all that goes with it and New Years is a roast.
    Are you going to cowboy up or lie there and BLEED?

    I love butterscotch..that sounds so good.

    We have vegis, chips and dip with smoked salmon and sour cream pizza for Christmas Eve.

    I am roasting a nice previously happy, free range chicken with stuffing (corn bread ofcourse) mashed potatoes, gravy, asparagus and apple pie for Christmas Day. But now all I can think of is butterscotch pudding....

    For Christmas Eve, we're having steaks with mashed potatoes and green beans, with a tasty Napa cab.

    For Christmas, we're making pancakes for breakfast, and then a ham with a cherry/zinfandel/maple syrup glaze, roasted potatoes, brussels sprouts, and a kale salad. Haven't decided on the wine yet...possibly bubbles! For dessert, a salted caramel cream pie.

    For me, corned beef tonight, and ham tomorrow. I am a bit unconventional though for the most part. I had corned beef on Thanksgiving because I cannot stand turkey! It was so good I decided to do it again for Christmas Eve! We'll have a winter chop salad and some roasted veggies as well. For the picky child, I'm doing chicken breast and steamed cauliflower on both nights (it's all she wants).

    At the home of MrB's parents, it will be turkey breast, honeybaked ham (I'm good for one slice, then about sodium-ed out), mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, baked beans, green bean casserole, appetizers of cheese ball and sausage balls... I'm hoping not the 'fruit salad' that is like orange juice with grapes and walnuts, because it always makes my mouth hurt...
    I enjoy their food well enough- his mom doesn't make a bad meal, but it's very down-home and heavy. And there's always way too much of it! It's mildly stressful because I'm really trying not to over eat and change my portion habits but I'm guilted into more than I want.

    at the home of my parents (three days after Christmas) it will be seafood of some sort. Stone crab claws, shrimp and grits maybe? Or mahi mahi with a mango salsa? Lots of alcohol, lol. Dessert will probably be key lime pie.

    A ham, which is pretty simple, ham, whole cloves stuck into ham, some water in the base of the pan, cover with foil, put in the oven at 350 for about an hour and a half (its a small ham).
    We are also havin, rice, broccli and cheese casserole, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes and some corn.
    Just the two of us this year so we are having a big dinner tonight, left overs tomorrow and family time the rest of the week.

    It's just myself & Mr. B., but we like to do Xmas up right. Our traditional meal for several decades now is always roast goose.

    Full menu will be Spanakopita for pre-dinner snacks, then Julia Child's "Steam-Roasted Goose with Port Wine Gravy, Czech Bread Dumplings with Sauerkraut, Boursin Potato Gratin, Brussel Sprouts with Garlic & Breadcrumbs, my own tweaked & improved version of the infamous "Green Bean Casserole" (which hubby loves) & good old Pillsbury Crescent Rolls (another hubby favorite). Dessert will be a Mrs. Smith's "Razzleberry (read mixed berry) Pie" with whipped cream.

    With all that cooking to do tomorrow (although I may make the dumplings today, since they reheat so well), our traditional Christmas Eve dinner is - wait for it - TAKEOUT PIZZA - lol!

    Of course it is...all the food groups. Dairy/protein, vegetable, grains (crust).

    My traditional family meal at Christmas always included shrimp so tonight I'm inviting friends over and having steamed shrimp, guacamole and hummus dips, latkes (I'm half Jewish and I often have them on Christmas Eve, don't know why), salad and two blue cheeses for dessert, followed by chocolate truffles and spiced pecans. Tomorrow I'm going to friends and it's the traditional turkey.

    Tonight: leftovers

    Tomorrow - if the weather holds - I'll drive to a friend's for his annual Open House. Missed the last 2 as driving was awful.

    Food Frenzy there is always:
    Honeybaked Ham
    Beef Roast
    Fried Chicken
    Spaghetti - his own "secret" recipe based on bottled Ragu, but honestly it is so good everyone takes home as much as they can carry.
    Friends & relatives fill in with awesome homemade sides:
    Collard greens
    Mac & cheese
    Dinner Rolls
    Pineapple stuffing (my contribution - by demand of host)
    And more desserts than you can imagine including host's sweet potato pies.

    This group is truly a case of "Friends are the family you choose" - most I only see once a year, at this gathering.

    I made the cranberry relish and pumpkin pie today. Turkey with stuffing goes in oven tomorrow morning. We're going to friends for dinner tomorrow. They also have some sort of beef, shrimp, several kinds of vegs, I also take the black olives-my favorite, and a nice red wine. Very relaxed and a lot of fun. Also great since they live just down the road from us. Weather is supposed to be stormy. Who'd of thunk of thunderstorms for Christmas?

    Turkey and stuffing. This year instead of my usual mashed squash I am making a big pan of roasted veggies: squash, fingerling potatoes, leeks and brussels sprouts. DH makes a broccoli casserole; neighbor brings her homemade cranberry chutney. That's it. And pie for dessert, but not homemade. My grocery store makes very good, natural-juice pies and sells them by halves! So this year we get four flavors: pumpkin, apple, blueberry, and strawberry-rhubarb, for the equivalent of two pies.

    You know, Xmas eve *used* to be a Chinese food meal before I married the old fart. Ah, well... burned a half dozen burgers on the grill instead. Let's hope tomorrow I won't do the same with the prime rib!
