What are you having for your Christmas meal?

Just curious to see what everyone is doing for your Christmas meal? :)

Christmas eve, I am going to grandmother-in-law's house to celebrate. We usually do store bought finger foods: chicken wings, cheese plate, cookies, sandwich rolls.

xmas day: breakfast at mother in law's house: something called apple skeevers (never had these)

xmas dinner: my dad's house for prime rib, not sure what side dishes will be made.

Daughter's getting married on Christmas Eve. We will be having a buffet dinner at Ihilani Hotel and Resort. The ceremony will be at sunset, on the hotel grounds overlooking the ocean.

CONGRAT's! Wasabi!

What a great day for you all!

The "traditional" stuffed turkey for Christmas, this year a 20 lb bird, stuffing to match size, smashed potato, veggies, wine and/or tomato juice, Christmas Pudding, pumpkin pie, etc! (Firms up in another week, with inputs from beloved children!)

Christmas Eve, since we are bringing in the "rental hottub", will likely be a "hot tub" related smorgasborg, with bacon wrapped scallops, and waterchestnuts, grilled tuna steaks, crabcakes, shrimp of at least two recipes (considering starting a thread on this!), many sliced veggies with a few different "dips", given God can find it possible to forgive the bacon thing and find this "meatless"...similar "knick knacks" and finger foods for the evening, as we welcome the neighbours to drop by and visit, and probably run up the world's worst Long Distance bill on the phone, calling all relatives, but its only once a year...five days with the eldest daughter and son being here in all the year long, why get "cheap" or "scimp" anywhere? we can do that on any other of the 360 nights...

Two dinners here, one on Christmas day with just me, DH, and my two sons - Roast Beast, potato gratin, some green veg - whatever looks good - and a salad. And Christmas cookies for dessert.

Monday after Christmas - DH's clan descends on us from NC, and we''re doing a ham with raisin/cider sauce, biscuits, green bean casserole (courtesy of SIL), maybe a black eyed pea succotash, baked stuffed potatoes, and pear/almond tart for dessert.

Happy Cooking, everyone!

On Christmas Eve, DH and I will have my parents over before church. I'm going to do a spiral ham, scalloped garlic 3-cheese potatoes, green beans with walnuts, cranberries, and either a cake or Christmas cookies for dessert.

Christmas day, we'll go to my parents and do the traditional turkey, stuffing, potato thing (essentially Thanksgiving over again!). For this one, I get a break and am only responsible for cranberries, sweet potatoes, and apple pie. We'll have a tray of muchies and Christmas cookies out all day since we won't eat until late afternoon.

In-laws are coming for a couple of days between Christmas and New Years. I'm not sure what I'll have for them. I have to work so I'll probably keep it easy and make a lasagna or something. And of course, more cookies!

Wow, Wasabi, I'm jealous! What better way to spend Christmas Eve! Congratulations, everyone around here describes that as the dream wedding (yes, even the rough, tough, manly men.) If I get airfare can I crash the reception??? Did I mention that I'm jealous? Did I also mention that it's snowing and cold and would KILL to be on a sunny beach right now? Sounds like a blast, Wasabi, best wishes for your family! :D
