We'll more than likely do Christmas wirh the DD and DD'S either the weekend before or after. Other than a buche de Noel, no.idea. I have been thinking about doing mini turduckens with deboned turkey legs, duck thighs and chicken thighs but I'll have to run that by DD. The things the girls will eat seem to change on a weekly basis. The oldest one, 15, has decided she no longer likes chocolate as her latest.

Pretty much the same as usual for Christmas dinner. Turkey for Thanksgiving, ham for Christmas.

I'm not a big fan of spiral ham, so I usually get a bone in 'picnic' ham. Sides will be scalloped potatoes, broccoli, carrots, and rolls. Oh, and pie.

It's a week long process of grazing. We'll have a half dozen sweets, some beef or venison, some shrimp dishes, something that clucks, a half dozen vegetable dishes, a vegetable/pickle/olive tray, appetizers. Someone will pick up some pickled herring, someone else picks up pizza. It's a week marathon of eating.

I was waiting for your menu. You always go above and beyond for holidays, but especially Christmas.

We are hoping to be at the mummy-in-law's place. She usually does turkey, mashed potatoes, roast vegis, crudités & dip, cranberry sauce, and gravy. I forgot to mention the Brussels sprouts. I don't remember if she steams or boils them. Whichever, they aren't overcooked, so I enjoy them.

I looove roast turkey and the trimmings. I probably have a hot open turkey with gravy, stuffing, and cranberry sauce about every fortnight or so.

My uncle used to consume either a full cup of whipping cream OR a 1/4 pound of butter before going out. Swore it coated his stomach and he stayed sober. I doubt it, since they never showed up at Mom and Dad's until about the 6th of January.


Not sure what's going on for Christmas this year. We are headed to OH, but whether or not it's just the four of us or we're headed to another home, I'll find out when we land at Loverly's. IF we have it at her place and it's just the 4 of us, I'll make some sort of beef roast with potatoes, two veggies (what looks good when I shop), and sauteed mushrooms out the wazoo. One year I made these mushrooms with lemon juice and toasted bread crumbs and bacon, onion, garlic... and OH MY were they good!

I think Christmas will pass unnoticed here. Mark’s birthday is the day after, so I’m gonna try to focus on that. But I think he’d really enjoy going to a diner! We have couple that are quite good and close by.

For NYE, I’d like to sous vide a couple of petit filets, and do invidual beef Wellingtons. Then maybe some snow crab legs with clarified butter and I’ll make some rolls. Mark likes Caesar salad and so do I. I saw that romaine is back, so a Caesar salad, and some black-eyed peas for luck in the new year.

All of this is contingent on what’s in the bank, of course!
