Sounds awesome expatgirl. I was thinking pork tenderloin for Christmas dinner. Next time you have corn on the cob try lime juice and salt instead of butter. The sharp lime flavor mixing with the sweet creamy corn is a bomb.

That sounds interesting! I'm inviting two Chinese, one Australian and a half Jamaican for my Christmas dinner. Any ideas? Something they would like?

We will be having a standing rib roast, baked potato with the usual add-ons and broccoli with cheese sauce (this is a compromise veggie - it's the only one my DD, SIL and we will all eat with pleasure.

For dessert I'm trying to make a lemon meringue pie again. SIL's favorite. SO has made paklava and several great cookies.

Actualy, We are having Christmas Dinner on Wed. due to family's work schedule. On Thursday I am cooking a Standing Rib Roast, Green Beans with New Potatoes, Honey Glazed Carrots, French Rolls and Salad. A much smaller crowd on Thursday, I am planning on using my slicer and thinly slicing the leftover meat for French Dip Sandwiches. Oh, tis the season to pig out.
