Christmas Dinner . . .

. . . okay, so we've been to the grocery store three times in the past two days, and Christmas is still almost a week away. We'll still need to hit the store on Christmas Eve morning to pick up the perishables etc. But I think we've got everything else covered.

Anyway, looking at the different things in people's baskets and the different options at the meat counter, I got to thinking about the various things people do for Christmas Dinner.

I know some people do turkey, some do ham, and others do prime rib or roast beef.

So, let's talk about it. What are you doing for Christmas dinner this year?

We typically do fondue on Christmas Day, and that's not changing this year. It's a family favorite, one of my personal favorites and a great excuse to have friends over to join us.

On Christmas Eve, I'll be making homeade sauce with Italian sausage over fresh pasta and we'll do a stuffed artichoke, bacon wrapped greenbean bundles to go with it.

So, what about everybody else? What's for dinner?

We've just changed our plans, we are coming to yours!!!!!

Seriously though we have just had major plan changes. We were going to have a romantic meal with just the two of us based on my families traditional xmas meal - Lobster to start followed by Turkey with the trimmings and ending with xmas pudding.

As of yesterday, thanks to way too many cocktails, I invited my SIL and her family over for dinner with my usual cry of "the more the merrier" (Damn those mojito's!!)

This was great till I woke up this morning and realised that 2 have become 8 (+ 3 dogs!!) so have now upgraded the turkey to a "plus size" full bird and downgraded the lobster to smoked salmon and Shrimp, all still followed by christmas pudding with a cheese board for munchies later.

itll be great as we will have the kids there, which I think will make christmas, and we only have to convert our spare bedroom into a dining room for the occassion which should be a snap!!!

Hope everyone else has a great time!!

This year we are doing small snacks and hors d'oeurvres. Nothing fancy, family can come and go, enjoy some company, enjoy some food, and hopefully some laughs.

Christmas Eve we go to my DH's Aunt's house. His family is Armenian so they tend to have all different foods...string cheese, stuffed grape leaves and some other things I don't eat! This year they will also be having a pork loin and spicy baked beans. Before we go to their house at 7pm (once they get home from church) we are going to a friends house and they will be having a traditional dinner and 'picky' foods.

To his Aunt house I will bring beer bread, dip, spinnach florientine ring and homemade creamy corn. To our friends house I will bring bacon wrapped hot dogs in brown sugar, andscallops wrapped in bacon.

Christmas Day we have brunch here at our house with the in laws then for dinner we will be having steaks (good steaks!) and some fixings

The day after New Years we will go to NY to my mom's house for a full turkey and ham dinner, along with Italian stuff (her BF is Italian).

I'm pretty much betting I'll gain several pounds these next few weeks.

This is my first Christmas in Florida and since I was just back home for Thanksgiving I can't get the time off work to go back. Luckily, my DP is flying in tonight to stay for the week. We are having homemade baked ziti(I even made my own gravy), caesar salad, meatballs, italian bread, and homemade cheesecake for dessert. Christmas Day will be a traditional turkey dinner with TONS of leftovers! Luckily I have some friends flying down for New Year's Eve so hopefully they like turkey!
Happy Holidays to everyone!

We go to a differant Aunt's house each year but the menu is always Turkey and Ham with all the usual trimmings. Depending on which Aunt (or my Mom) is hosting determines the stuffing concoction that year.

Apparently we're having fried chicken this year? For the first time... I'm sure there will be potatoes and gravy, green beans, dinner rolls, cranberries, and some form of dessert as well.

Forgot to mention that when we go to my grandparents for "Christmas" the 2nd week in January, we'll likely end up having sloppy joe's, lutheran-style hotdish, homemade pickles, sharp cheddar on rye bread, some form of potatoes, several different vegetables, and about 30,000 different kinds of cookies, candies, and desserts.

I work overnights... the family decided to eat without me since I had to sleep... they didn't save anything for me. I ended up ordering a pizza. Blah.

For us Christmas meal depends on which family is hosting (parents vs one of my siblings).... but always always always our meal starts with a little Italian flare of homemade turkey cappelletti soup, homemade lasagna, then onto the more traditional turkey, homemade cranberry sauce ((mom would never forgive us if we didn't make homemade lol)) and some sort of potato (mashed or roasted). if it's one of my siblings they make some sort of veg and the meal ends there other than desserts.

On the other hand when my parents cook the table is full of food; enough food for us and the neighborhood. My parent's house at Christmas is always known as the house where extended family and friends show up throughout the day for food. LOL
