It's still in the works a little.
Dh is working on Christmas, so we'll celebrate the day before.
I'll be making
Pork Tenderloin with a black peppercorn sauce
Mashed Potatoes
Broccoli Rice Casserole
Cranberries
And I'm not sure what else
Chocolate Kahlua Mousse Pie for sure.

On Christmas, we'll have a dinner at the station.
We're bringing spiral ham and a dessert but I'm not sure what else will be on the table.

We will have a roasted pork loin and all the trimmings. Dessert is still up in the air, possibly a maple/pumpkin pie or a coconut cream cake (plus a variety of cookies I baked).

Christmas eve will be one of my favorties:


Pizza Pie

and Christmas dinner has changed a few times. It was going to be goat tenderloin until I was discussing this with a friend and he made it clear that he really wished he could be there for that meal, so I will serve the Korean tenderloin at a later time for him and his wife.

Now it looks like a beef pot roast in the slow cooker, with garlic, onions and shredded potatoes and carrots
with a side of garlicked mashed potatoes
baked sweet potato chunks
vinegar cole slaw with a dollop of maple syrup for my serving
fresh bread with amish butter
and a few chocolate almond cookies for dessert

Christmas menu:

-4 bone prime rib (home aged) w/ a sea salt-garlic paste crust
-Sour cream-chive horseradish sauce
-Shrimp cocktail w/ homemade cocktail sauce
-Marscapone mashed potatoes
-Green bean casserole
-Butternut squash soup
-Creamed spinach w/ parmesan
-Chocolate lava cakes w/ marionberry filling
-Cranberry martinis
-Cranberry compote

There will be 3 or 4 other dishes, but I haven't sussed them out yet. Menu's a little too basic for my tastes, so I need a few complex things to keep me balanced.

We long ago did away with the 7-Fishes in place of a far more simple fish/pasta dinner on xmas eve. This is our nicer dinner where we sit down and eat like civilized human beings.

We do still make Strufoli... actually my 85yo grandmother does its one of the only things she makes well.. she has always been a terrible cook but there are a few things she can do best.

x-mas day will be a mish-mosh buffet of who knows what.... the highlight is the handmade manicotti.. unfortunately this is a paper plates... lucky if you can find a seat type of event.... actually most of the food is usually good it is just hard to enjoy in such disorganization....
