Christmas Eve will start around 3:00 p.m. and continue ... we will have a mini- smorgåsbord--3-4 kinds of cold open-faced sandwiches, those SHRIMP for which Rock posted the recipe, a couple of salads, and the "hot" table will have Janssen's temptation, and I haven't decided what else will be on it, and 7 kinds of cookies for dessert.


Christmas Day will be roasted turkey with all the trimmings.


Boxing Day will be turkey soup.



It will just be the two of us, so I have to make sure I don't prepare enough food to feed the Swedish Army.

Christmas eve will be fried haddock, ravioli, corn, peas, and crab soup for me. Cookies and Ice cream for dessert.

Christmas day will be baked honey/brown sugar ham, sweet potatoes, scalloped potatoes, carrots, roasted brussel sprouts, asparagus, cherry pie for dessert.

I'm cooking both meals.

We're going to host Glenn's three children and their families, his mother and my younger brother for dinner, then wrapping paper mayhem after. There will be a handful of grandchildren (under age 8), so we'll definitely have a blast.

I've planned pineapple/coconut stuffed Cornish hens, Yukon Gold fingerling potatoes with rosemary en papillote, honey-glazed baby carrots, green bean bundles with shallots (haricot verts inserted in yellow squash "rings" and steamed), apple-raisin-cranberry relish flavored with Grand Marnier, homemade potato rolls with butter and white wine, sparkling grape juice for the young ones. For dessert, I've made an assortment of 20 different cookies, candies and sweets, which will be served on tiered holders with coffee.

I, too, love Christmas and this family is so sweet and loving it's easy to open our holiday and enjoy it with them. I can't wait.
Sounds lovely.

We are all going to one of our son's house on Christmas Eve to have supper and to open gifts. To eat we will be having our choice of his homemade chili, taco soup or goulash. Then on Christmas day we will be at our daughters house. They are having grilled steaks, baked potatoes and salad. Along with all of this food we will have lots of desserts and Christmas treats. :>)

I'm afraid I'm coming down with something. The plan is to drive to Cornwall, Ontario (~95 km) and spend Xmas with the mummy-in-law. If I don't feel better, it ain't happening. If we do go to the mummy-in-law's place, it will probably be turkey (oh joy, I don't really care for turkey). We don't really celebrate Xmas, so it won't be that bad if we miss it with the in-laws. We had our Solstice celebration on the weekend. It's actually tonight at 00h30 EST.

No you don't. If I'm feeling better I might show up at your house.

I picked up the smallest ham I could find and it will still be too big but, I really want the bone for some soup.

Christmas day will be Ham, cheese potatoes, broccoli, cabbage salad, and apple crisp with ice cream.

I have been fighting the urge to make some cookies but I may make a batch of snickerdoodles or molasses crinkle tops just to make the house smell good.

Being old and fat is such a bummer!
