Christmas Eve Dinner. What's On The Menu?

The kids are coming over tonight to exchange gifts. We're ordering Chinese take-out for dinner.

What's up with you?

We ordered some home made tamales from a neighbor lady for dinner tonight.
We always have tamales for Christmas Eve dinner. I'll pull out some of my homemade chili verde from the freezer to go on top of them, and maybe make some Spanish rice and a green salad for sure. I can't believe it's Christmas Eve already. Still looking for a delivery for the rest of the gifts...they were promised to get here by today......holding breath!

Good question. I've been "dining" on Christmas cookies and candies all morning. Hopefully my appetite will pick up in time to decide what to take out of the freezer. Could be frozen pizza, could be lobster.

Probably a lot of nibbling today. I don't THINK anyone is coming by, but you just never know. I think I'll put on a pot of chicken soup, and make some dumplings to go with. (Might try kitchenelf's slippery dumplings) I JUST remembered to take out the turkey last night! *forehead slap* So its sitting in water outside the back door. Cross your fingers people!

No plans. We'll see what we're in the mood for later. I've been too busy baking and cleaning to think about dinner!

I envy you.. We have a neighbor lady who brings us a batch of Tamales every Christmas morning. You should see my husband. He has no shame when it comes to her Tamales. He's hanging on the door drooling on the knob, looking out the window waiting.. Kid at Christmas.

Every time I ask her what she puts in it. She just says pork. That's not telling me much.. HO HO HO...
