Thread: What are you having for Xmas dinner?

  1. #1

    What are you having for Xmas dinner?

    We are having friends over for dinner and my wife and I do not want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Most of our stuff will be prepared or readied for cooking the day before.

    A salad of mixed baby greens and a fresh chive dressing. (My chives are still growing out back.)

    Roasted Cornish game hens seasoned and basted a couple of times with a mixture of melted butter and orange marmalade. (Smuckers, of course!)

    Baked sweet potatoes rubbed with butter and seasoned with cinnamon. When served, they will be dusted with powdered sugar. (Gotta have some snow)

    Homemade cranberry sauce (Basic but not as sweet as the canned stuff.)

    Steamed green beans.

    A German Moselle wine

    Our guests are bringing dessert

    My mom is doing Christma day, but I just planned Christmas Eve dinner. Going for easy this year ....

    Lasagna, which I can make in the morning, salad, fresh bread. My brother in law is in charge of wine, and guests are bringing dessert too!

    My extended family will get together on Christmas Eve so we will have finger foods and wine, lots of wine. For Christmas think I am going to make chicken and dressing for my husband and myself.

    Probably the usual:

    Glazed ham
    Dressing w/gravy
    Crawfish Pie (maybe)
    Green bean casserole
    rolls, etc.

    This is the first Christmas we have lived back in our hometown in 12 years so it will be nice to be close to family again..

    Traditional turkey, mashed potatoes, cauliflower casserole, stuffing, some sort of vegetable, buns ... and I've got to pick up some wine. My sister is cooking this year ... I wanted to but it was just too much with being off work and still healing.

    I'm thinking about doing 2 new cookies - Kahlua Gingerbread cutouts and toffee butter crunch. Though my sister likes cheesecake .. but she's watching her figure as she'll be in Aruba in less than 3 weeks!

    I might try Alton Brown's mac and cheese recipe ... just comfort simple food to bring ... not that we need it!

    Hope I can do the meal next year! I want to make some penne or lasagne for some folks down in Windsor I consider family ... but it'll have to be between Christmas and New Years and around work (yay) as I'm now back.

    Plans for the local casino with a co-worker for New Year's Eve too - yay! (Hardly ever get to go there ... David and I had a joke where every time we drove by I'd whine, "Can we go to the caseeennn.." and he'd finish with a hardy, "No!" lol The freak.
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    Doing a beef brisket on the Holland Grill by request from two of my sister-in-laws along with a spiral cut ham along with twice baked potatoes, green bean casserole,relish tray,seven layer salad, home made rolls, and pecan pie. After dinner we will enjoy a few cocktails made from my own homemade Kahula and Irish Creame, with my own famous verison of a Colorado Bulldog topping the list.

    Just found it myself as I was looking for something different. Also on the search for diabetic cookies - 2 brothers, a brother-in-law and now my first two cousins (husband and wife).
