Christmas Dinner

Am I missing something here? What are YOU having today? I'm lucky, it is my friend's turn to cook (I did Thanksgiving) and we're having prime rib with all the trimmings, British style (my contribution is a boozy, light, trifle). Life is good!

Looks like it's a prime rib year!! We are also having it. Plus crab/shrimp stuffed baked tatoes and upside down pumpkin cake.

A few little hot buttered rums and have not decided on a appy yet - guess I'd better get my whatever in gear and figure that out. Do have some Raclette left, so probably do something with that, hmmmmmmm

Happy grazing everyone!!

Normally we do a prime rib, this year it is seafood (which I adore).

Shrimp cocktail, fried scallops, lobsters stuffed with crabmeat and baked. OK, will make baked taters to serve with the lobsters.

Maybe will do a standing rib for New Year's. The best part in my opinion is the Yorkshire pud.

But Yorkshire pud does not go with lobster.

I've tried to figure out some way to do it with the seafood, but nah. Rats.

Oh well, auntdot will just have to deal with it, somehow.

Merry Christmas y'all.

Plus all the other bits and pieces. Totally awesome day with all the family - 3 children and partners, 11 grandchildren - some with partners and various friends.

Prime rib is what I wanted! All your menus sound so good! I got outvoted though! I am making our traditional stuffed shells, meatballs, brochiolle, sausage and salad. Merry Christmas everyone!

We're having a whole, bone-in ham, twice-baked potatoes, green bean casserole, killer baked beans and chocolate pie.
We get by with a little help from our friends

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas - and as for me I am having Christmas Dinner at my best friend Sandy's house. I will probably leave here about 3:30PM because I don't want too much traffic on the 405 Freeway and arrive there around 4PM.

She has asked everyone to be there at 5PM but I like to talk to Sandy and her sister Shirley and play with her dog Shalom.

When's dinner?

For the noon meal, I had a frozen pizza. Dinner @ SIL's should be decent, but I don't know what all will be there. Some of the IL's have unique tastes . . . .
