I started a tradition a few years ago, Prime Rib Roast, Salad, Potatoes and Green Beans, Honey Glazed Carrots and French Bread.
This year I have to wait until the sale flyer's come out after payday to decide what to have this year. I would love to stuff a ham and a turkey, but it will probably just be Turkey and the usual trimmings.

Christmas Eve will mostly be spent at work until about 6 or 7 - - Boss loves to play Santa and always brings his private stash of some favorite wines **woohoo**.

Not sure at all what Christmas Eve will bring as way of foods.

Christmas Day is spent at SIL's who prefers a mish-mash of stuff. Sometimes she wants me to bring my BBQ Chicken, another year it was a tomato soup (FIL's fav so far). This year...I'm just not sure. May do the soup and something else.

Still don't know, but I bought a Cornish hen last week when I shopped for groceries.

Everyone's meals sound so delicious. I'd love to have Christmas dinner with each and every one of you.

It will be just the 2 of us, so I'm thinking of duck breast with an orange sauce. What would go well with this? Please help!!!

Oddly enough, Essie, I just made this (all for myself ) and did one of my favorite sides--Brussels sprouts sauteed in duck fat. All it needs is salt and pepper, but if a little of the orange sauce makes its way over to the sprouts, well, all the better. This time I just roasted potatoes, but usually do a risotto or pilaf.

With duck I also like plain buttered brussel sprouts or broccoli, & buttered egg noodles. Glazed turnips or some carrots for color are also nice. I've also enjoyed shredded butter-sauteed cabbage with a dash of caraway seed with duck as well.

Our family tradition has always been tourtiere on Christmas Eve, as well. I grew up in a town that had lots of French Canadians living there. We lived in New York State, not far from the Canadian border. Anyway, I always make the pie and on Christmas Day, my daughter takes care of the dinner. Last year, it was individual Beef Wellingtons. Yum.
