What's for dinner Christmas Eve?

We're having beef stir fry with udon noodles today. With all that is going on around here today I figure I'd better plan on fast and easy or I'm hooped!

A take away. Saving my energy for tomorrow. Plus I had a long night out at a work christmas do last night, and perhaps had a little too much to drink. No hangover, but I have the cuts and bruises to prove it! Definitely sore today.

Lots of stuff going on in the kitchen but all of it is for tomorrow. We'll probably get Chinese take out or something.

It was supposed to be pan seared duck breast.

SO is on her way to Florida and she hates duck so this was going to be my chance to have duck. Two supermarkets didn't have duck in stock.

Dinner tonight will be country-style pork ribs marinated in a chipotle marinade.

I'm having at the last of my prime rib. I'll give it a couple flips on the grill to warm it through, set it on some garlic toast and pour the au jus all over it. As a matter of fact, I may have just talked myself into that for lunch.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

Combo #1 - Chicken Teriyaki with steamed vegetables and fried rice. Delivered by a nice Asian man who is always very grateful for the business. He gets a nice tip!

We always have pork tamale's and chili beans on Christmas eve. Our nearby Mexican grocery store has a hot deli and sells wonderful handmade Christmas tamale's.

Pizza, with everything but onions, and a bottle of 2009 Duca di Cardino Chianti DOCG
