We will be having honey baked ham for Christmas. I want to keep it fairly simple so I am trying to plan sides that can be prepared on Christmas Eve since DH will be working. That way we can just reheat on Christmas Day. I'm thinking old-fashioned macaroni, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes (can I do those ahead of time?), and ot sure what else. Maybe a salad of some sort?

Things are really tight... Looks like mac and cheese, sliced apples and carrots, and hopefully some chicken tenders if I can find chicken REALLY inexpensive.

I'm sorry that it's so tight mama, sounds like an awesome meal you have planned.

You can. I did, I think it was two years ago. I think it was the Pioneer Woman recipe, but it took forever to reheat them (the time given in the recipe was WAY off). They were good, tho. Also, you can do them in the Crockpot and keep them warm that way.

Re: What are you making for Christmas Dinner?

We're hosting Christmas Eve for the first time this year. I'm making a vegetarian lasagna, creamy tomato/basil soup in the crock pot, and a salad. I think I spent about $15 and I'll be feeding at least 10-14 adults and 4 kids.

Re: What are you making for Christmas Dinner?

Our Christmas Meal Menu

Pineapple ham with coke cola basted
Sweet tater casserole with brown marshmallows on top
Green Bean casserole
Devil Devilish Eggs
Rolls
Pumpkin rolls
Kickitupaknotch party mix
Party winniners
Homemade party punch.

Nothing big this Christmas as money is getting tighter each year on people. Like to had fixed duck but too high in cost so went for Ham as that is what have each Christmas.

Re: What are you making for Christmas Dinner?

I ended up buying a turkey breast and finger foods (cheese, olives, beef summer sausage) and will make deviled eggs and scotch eggs. My birthday is Monday so we'll have left over homemade cheesecake from that and I plan on making a pumpkin roll.

ccserrano were you able to get chicken to make chicken strips?

Re: What are you making for Christmas Dinner?

I'm making a pot of chili on Christmas Eve, and putting a round steak in the crock pot on Christmas morning. I wanted something that would be quick, easy, and cheap. We have beef in the freezer, beans that I canned in the summer, and potatoes for mashing. We are too tight to purchase anything special, so it has to be whatever I have on hand.
