What are you having for Christmas?

I know that people often have Ham for Christmas since Turkey is traditioanlly served on Thanksgiving, but I am just curious what other things people make? I belive we're having Turkey again (which is fine with me, YUM!) at the in-laws on Christmas Day, Ham at my family's get together which is later on, and I am having my brother & SIL over on Christmas Eve and am making Prime Rib.

What about you?

We're having turkey, home made noodles, home made gravy, potatoes.. hm.. idk what else.

We have the same thing on thanksgiving and christmas and easter because it's the best EVER and the only time my grandma makes it.

I could eat it ALL year round.

I don't know what we'll be having at the inlaws tho.

I'm picking up a goose, and then we're having some Asian dishes (Vietnamese crepes and peking duck) along with the typical side dishes and deserts. It'll be at my mom's house this year.

I've never cooked a goose before and we get the duck from a restaurant. I found a recipe at allrecipes.com for the goose and plan on using an oven bag. This was my first year making a turkey and ham at Thanksgiving and with the help of the oven bag, both turned our fantastic!

Re: What are you having for Christmas?

I always make a roast in the crockpot for Christmas Eve. It's just the 4 of us (DH, DS, DD, and myself) and we eat by candlelight. It's easy because I don't have to think about it at all after I put it in in the morning. I'm trying this recipe this year:
Harvest Pot Roast with Vegetables

I'm not sure what we're having for Christmas day. We'll be at my sister's with all my family, but we have so many strange diets in the family (one sister who is a raw foodist, one sister is diabetic and vegetarian, BIL is vegetarian, dad and other BIL can't have wheat/gluten, dad also can't eat a whole slew of other common foods because of allergies) so I don't know what we'll eat. Last year we did a potluck of soups and salads and that was a success, so we might do it again this year.

What I'm really looking forward to is our "treat table" that we have every year. We make way too many yummy treats and just snack on them for like 3 days straight. Mmmmm!

Re: What are you having for Christmas?

Its just me and my littles this year (DH is deployed)- so I am doing it easy - Chili in the crockpot and homemade rolls (which I made last night and are in the freezer ready to take out and thaw)

I tried the whole, cooking Thanksgiving dinner with four little ones under 6, trying to talk on the phone with everyone who called to see how we were doing, and stopping to feed the baby... and I ended up burning the turkey, putting too much salt in the stuffing (as I added salt, was on the phone and holding the baby, and then added salt again) and the yams were bitter - so we ended up eating pie for dinner!

My girls are so young, they don't care, so I'm throwing it in the crockpot and not worrying!
