Two years ago my husband and I were getting hungry on Christmas day. I didn't feel like cooking, so we decided to get in the car and drive until we found something that looked good. We ended up at TGIFriday's in Charlotte. We decided to make that our new Christmas tradition. We went to Charlotte the last two years, so we decided to head toward Florence, SC this year. If we can't find anything there, we'll head down to Myrtle Beach. We're sure to find something open there.

I'm going to make a crown roast of pork with apple and whole wheat stuffing, hash brown casserole, and brussels sprouts cooked with pancetta. Poached pears with chocolate sauce for dessert. That oughta hold 'em for awhile.

All the larger casinos in Reno, NV have Christmas dinner. We have always wanted to go there, but you have to make reservations. We never have because the weather is so iffy this time of the year.

Barb - Do a google search for 'Restaurants' + Florence, SC - there are a lot listed, and you can get #s to call and see about Christmas day.

We will have either chicken spaghetti or red beans and rice slow cooked all day. We will be munching miscellaneous goodies all day, so I don't think we will be in the mood for a big dinner too.

Attention, choclatechef
I could not find a fresh ham to save my life in order to try your recipe with the sweet wine, so that's out for now.

We will have the "big" dinner on the 23rd, which is MIL's birthday, instead. Got a spiral sliced honey baked ham, and with it we will have this Jello thing I make with cranberries and mandarin oranges and nuts, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, Pecan pie and/or various cookie stuff I made for dessert.

Probably cooking a standing rib roast. Lots of sales this week, so, why not? Besides. It's a good excuse to bring out my electric knife again. 8)

Boeuf Bourguignon. Will start with a light relish tray (have gotten away from fancy, time-consuming starters, because then no one is really hungry at dinner time), and finish with a fruit & cheese tray with port and nuts. One guest is bringing a couple of salads, another has a sweet tooth and I doubt she'll find the cheese platter concept does it for her and will show up with sweets of some kind. I think I'll do a simple potato dish, just quarter bakes or something that won't take a lot of work but will work to soak up some of that (hopefully) yummy sauce.

I did a search, but then I decided not to check into it. Half the fun is picking a place as we are driving. :) I'm all for knowing where I'm going most of the time, but not knowing is part of our new tradition. We haven't been disappointed so far.

:) Barbara
