    Default What are you having for Christmas supper?

    So what are you having for Christmas supper? We're not being very traditional this year. On Christmas eve we're having Raclette with a Buche de Noel and on Christmas day we're having 2 types of fondue with Buche de Noel again.

    My MIL does Christmas dinner - and it's pretty standard fare (and what we have EVERY year):

    Turkey
    Ham
    Stuffing
    Mashed Potatoes
    Sweet Potatoes
    Macaroni Salad
    Deviled Eggs
    Noodles
    Broccoli crap (rice/cheese/broc. casserole)
    Baked Beans
    Rolls

    and for dessert:
    apple pie (w/ ice cream)
    pumpkin pie (w/ cool whip)
    assortment of cookies
    strawberry cheesecake
    jello cake
    banana split salad

    Every year - it's a feast, but some variation would be nice.

    When my mom was alive we used to have turkey every year. Now we don't. I miss turkey and all the trimmings, I'm lucky if I get to eat it once every 2 years. Every year I try to convince my father-in-law to make turkey, he made some last year so this time it's raclette.

    We always just go over to the inlaws for holidays like Xmas and Thanks Giving.
    We'll prolly have one of the three 1, roasted turkey 2, roasted chicken or 3, roasted ham.
    I'm gonna bring desert this year. Thinking of making cheese cake (pina colada flavour... )

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    We're going out for the second year in a row since my mother just can't handle it any more and this is what she wants. I am making a feast for Christmas Eve though.

    Christmas Eve: Seafood appetizer, veggie pate, seafood lasagne, spinach salad with pear, walnuts and roquefort cheese, an assortment of baking and trifle. Plus, a separate vegetarian meal for hubby including stuffed portabello mushrooms and Christmas pudding with brandy sauce. I'll be busy, lol.

    Pretty much the exact same thing we had for Thanksgiving: turkey, dressing, veggies, casseroles, etc.

    I do wish the two major food holidays weren't packed into a 6 week span, but I don't know where else it should be. I don't think Thanksgiving would feel quite "right" during the summer months.

    I'm doing Christmas Eve at my house for about 10 people (and the drifting friends that always seem to find our house!). We're having pizza and garlic bread, and Baker's Square holiday pies. Mmmm... French Silk! Oh, and lots of Bailey's Irish Cream in my glass! Could it get any easier? For the first time, I don't have to do anything but throw pizzas in the oven! We're forcing my hubby to make the mashed potatoes at my sister's on Christmas Day. He makes the best, artery clogging, buttery mashed potatoes. With lumps!

    You guys are all having some good stuff here.

    We're having a roast, potatoes, a salad, and some wine. Just the two of us this year- nice and quiet.

    The family dinner is tonight and is mainly nibbles. Hors d'ouvre, cookies, cakes, cheese, crackers, fruit, pate etc. The extended family dinner is tomorrow and is the turkey/stuffing etc thing.

    I've been making chocolate truffles. Quality ingredients are paramount so I've been extensively testing the liqueurs. I've got a good buzz going and so I'm going for a nap now. Cheers everyone!

    Ah yes, the Eugene O'Neill Christmas. I know it well.

    That's one reason why we go out to eat on Christmas Day now. Can't behave as badly in public...although we still have a few hours at home together first.

    Christmas Eve is my favourite now, and no, I am not inviting my mother and her husband. One day is enough. I feel a bit mean, but I cannot abide my mother's husband two days in a row.
