Spike's has good taste ! Love sauteed scallops, crusty bread, salad - enough for me !! Merry Christmas to you both !

Wow - kindred spirit here! It's just my husband & I AND our cockatoo too!!! (Although we also have dogs, cats, fish, & horses. . . ).

But even tho it's just the two of us, we always have a traditional Roast Goose (a whopping 15-3/4 pounder this year) with Port Wine gravy, buttered brussels sprouts, buttered carrots, Czech bread dumplings with sauerkraut, & good old Pillsbury crescent rolls.

Even tho it sounds like a lot, we have Xmas dinner, an "encore" of Xmas dinner later in the week, I snack on the goose wings & legs for lunches, & whatever's left goes into our traditional New Year's Day French Cassoulet (which also makes a good number of meals for us). So we get a lot of mileage out of that goose - lol!!

It's the two of us this year as well and we picked up a small ham. Doing it the traditional, way just smaller. I agree though...you should buy what you two want and go from there. Appetizers can be pretty filling so that is a great idea as well. Good luck and Merry Christmas to everyone!!!

Mr HB and I have decided on our favorite. Toasted English muffins, top with a MR filet, covered with bernaise sauce. Lobster and mashed potatos on the side a big salad (a la Elaine) and Mark Bittman's bread.

A friend of ours sent a wonderful dessert.

Oh, how I miss my kids. We won't be alone next year!

We love turkey so much that it's made several times a year.

So we just choose not to eat it on any holiday besides Thanksgiving.

Not dumb at all. I made a big turkey dinner for myself one Thanksgiving.

Turkey is great, we just decided to do seafood this year.

But I am clearly the dumb one here cause I don't know what an 'MR filet' is.

It is now 17 minutes to Christmas, and I gotta get some sleep.

Merry Christmas to all and the best of the season.

Just hubster and I at lunch today and we had lobster, oysters (well I did !!) and far too much fudge for our own good but worse is to come.
We have friends for dinner and are having Jeans Duck and Risotto amongst other things. Have a Summer Pudding for dessert, the berries at market yesterday looked so colourful, not faded like I thought they would be given our lack of sunshine so far this season. Also, I dipped fresh raspberries in white chocolate a few minutes ago...gorgeous!! Thanks Jo S!!

I have consumed a bottle of Moet over the last couple of hours so need to compose myself and go get dolled up for company.
Have a great dinner everyone!!

xxx Lyn

My DH wanted ham so bad I almost made it for dinner this week. If we did, we would have had turkey as well. I personally love turkey dinner so that sounds great to me. Merry Christmas and good luck to everyone who is cooking today.
