Christmas 2018 menu plans

Is anyone working on their Christmas eve or day menu plans?

We just found out that we're going to one of my niece's houses, so we're only bringing a few things. Dw will be making a casserole of 4 kielbasis, sauerkraut, onions, and potatoes. She will probably also make an apple pie.

I will stop off at the bakery in our old neighborhood for rye and semolina breads, Polish cream cheese pastries, and another Polish pastry called The Seven Sisters. Probably 2 of everything.

What are you planning for Christmas meals?

I'll be cooking a boneless ribeye roast by the reverse sear method and lyonnaise potatoes. We'll have some veggies my daughters will bring. I'm going to ask them each to bring a new appetizer (to get them out of their ruts).

When I bought my mother's house almost three years ago, I inherited the tradition of having people come here on xmas day..so, in keeping with this tradition, I usually go with the classic turkey dinner..I try to copy my mother's recipes and everybody enjoys it because it is a once a year thing..even down to the lime/carrot chiffon salad. People laugh, but it gets eaten..

Our family will be going to my older son's house again this year. The SC and I will again be taking 4 roasted ducks we'll cook here at home and others will fill in the menu. The recipe for them is a real winner and I'd be glad to post it for anyone interested.

Our Christmas dinner will be at daughter & sil's home.. Just the 4 of us..

While exchanging gifts, we will start off with an antipasto plate, a couple of dips, cracker and chips..

We will have a 4 bone (leftovers and no fighting for the bones) standing rib roast.

Standard sides of potatoes, a couple of veggies (potato type and veggies yet to be determined) green salad and, of course, yeast rolls..

A couple of different pies for later..

I heard from my niece that we'll be having a spiral sliced ham, and my sister's lasagana besides the kielbasis. Plus a lot of other stuff.

I'm glad for the kielbasi and lasagna. I find people often overcook and overglaze spiral sliced hams.

When much, much younger, New Years Eve, for my first wife and myself, was greasy bacon and eggs to prevent hangovers..

Seldom worked..
