    We always have turkey, but I would like some new side dishes this year. Anyone have some good suggestions?

    We always have turkey but add a ham since my nephew is allergic to turkey and chicken. We add homemade tourtiere since all of the guys love it. My sister has her mother in law's receipe and it is really good.

    Merry Christmas

    This year we are having steak. I am not a turkey lover and we have already had 2 turkey meals with different families.

    A friend who grew up in Nova Scotia told me that she remembers her Grandmother's stuffing as having mashed potatoes in it. Would anyone know of this? If yes do they have a recipe?

    My in-laws always put mashed potatoes in their dressing. I'm not certain of the entire recipe but I believe they replace half of the bread with mashed potatoes. The rest of the recipe stays the same. It is delicious!

    My mother always grates a raw potato into the stuffing. It seems to make it moister. Never heard of putting mashed into it though.

    How about Green Bean Casserole?

    I got the recipe off the kraft website, it's delicious! It was a hit on Thanksgiving for us.

    We go to my MIL's on Christmas and you had better have an appetite! She likes to keep everyone happy - including the 15 grandkids (good luck). So she has chicken (we are chicken farmers), roast beef (my BIL is a dairy farmer), ham (we are also pig farmers), meatballs - big and small, potatoes, hash brown casserole, fried rice, peas, beans, salads, jello's and then she still thinks we need dessert!

    Now my side of the family is a little (no alot) more laid back and tonight we will have finger foods, veges and dip and just snack all night long.

    Regardless of what we all eat - have a Merry Christmas everyone and enjoy the time with your families.
