What are you making or having for Christmas dinner?

I can't believe no one has started a thread on this, not unless I missed it. I haven't been on here in a few days. What are your plans?

We are going to a friend's house for dinner tonight. She is having roast beef and yorkshire pudding. That is all I know. I'm making crock-pot scalloped potatoes. I had no idea what else to make, since I don't know what else she is having and what another couple is bringing.

Tomorrow night, we are going to Mark's family Christmas dinner. I am not sure what they plan to prepare, but it's always good! I'm sure it will be turkey with all the fixin's, because his cousin is visiting for the holiday, and that is his favorite meal.

What about you?


A little kindness goes a long way.

We have had cod fish the last 9 years and it is very good :) We always buy a big one (at least 1,9 lbs).

I have caramel cinnamon rolls in the oven right now for breakfast then later I'll bake the home made pizza I put together yesterday. That along with the cookies and candies will be enough. If anyone is hungry later, I have sandwich fixings that they can make a sandwich. We had our big meal last night. It was good! We went to Nara of Japan and my son cooked for us a wonderful hibachi meal.

Would not a fair sized cod be more like 1,9 Kg instead of 1,9 Lbs?
Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas all! We have a feast planned. Giant turkey in the brine right now, there will be stuffing, potatoes (can't decide between lemon chunky ones or just seasoned oven roast), broccoli wild rice casserole, steamed green beans (last ones from the garden), maybe carrots too. I'll do a big coleslaw with Dad's recipe, and to finish we will have rhubarb pie, chocolate peanut butter pie with whipped cream, and whatever baking survives the afternoon. I normally have sparkling drink stuff, but didn't bother buying any so we'll make Italian sodas in pretty wine glasses. I'm so EXCITED!!! My sister in law and her family are coming home from Africa this Christmas. Its been so long since we've seen them.

Geez I'm the biggest kid in the house. Everyone else is still asleep and I'm sitting here watching the lights twinkle on the tree and listening to the dog shred the toy Santa brought him. Merry Christmas everyone.

Just getting up and going this morning but i will be fixing a ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potato casserole, chicken and noodles, green bean casserole, sweet corn, cheese ball, deviled eggs, all kinds of cookies, and pumpkin pie. Oh and a roast chicken for some little ones who don't eat ham. And if the weather doesn't improve I'll be eating it alone! Merry Christmas!

We are doing a large turkey, and going over to my in-laws for dinner.

We spent the least amount on presents this year, and it's been the best Christmas ever!

My daughter and her family are coming over, and my errant grandson is home again. DH is cooking a 20 lb. ham, and I have made twice baked potatoes (potato boats) that just have to go in oven for about an hour. We'll also have rolls (brown & serve). My daughter is bringing Killer Baked Beans and a Red Velvet Cake. I might fix another vegie, although DH will say we don't need it.
His daughter and family will be here tomorrow, when we'll have ham sandwiches and snack off leftovers and Christmas goodies.

Merry Christmas to all of you! Here's wishing you peace and love!

We get by with a little help from our friends
