With all our needs and tastes we have quite a buffet for just for people! My sister brings the turkey, regular gravy and two stuffings (one mushroomless for Dad). I do all the vegetables, stuffing and gravy for DH (gluten free), tourtiere, munchies and dessert. I also do a salad, but because Dad can't eat it anymore I am doing a broccoli salad instead of regular because the rest of us love it. Dad supplies a ham and a shrimp ring (ironic because he can't have seafood, but he has done this for years!).

Veggies this year are:
Garlic and green onion mashed potatoes
mashed yam (no marshmallows)
mustard glazed carrots
peas (Dad's and DH's green veg)
Brussel sprouts (Sister and my green veg)

Appies:
Shrimp Ring
Meat and cheese
Cashews (also from Dad)

Dessert:
Mandarin Orange Upside down cupcakes
Whipped Cream
Cool Whip (DH)
Assorted baking.

A lot of food for four people, but it is small amounts as not all of us eat everything!
I'm on my way Laurie!

Actually they are called fattigmands bakkelse in Norwegian and spelled slightly differently in Swedish. It means poor man's cake.

There are a number of dishes that start with the word "fattigmands". Most of them aren't cookies.

The Italians have these also. But I don't think they last long enough to give them a name. All I have ever heard them called is "Oohhh yeah. I want some!

Our plans have collapsed. We were going to visit the in-laws and leave early tomorrow morning. But, I have a bad sore throat and feel like cr*p. I'm not driving 100 kms with snow and other people's holiday cheer.

I have no idea what we will have. Xmas is not a big deal for us. We already had our Solstice party. But, we do enjoy getting together with DH's parents and they celebrate Xmas. Oh well.

I have a friend of several years with whom we share holidays. Neither of us has family near-by, and I do Thanksgiving, she does Christmas, and other holidays we either go out together or flip a coin.

Addie, you made me giggle. Its Boxing Day. Whether that was an accident or on purpose, thanks for the chuckle to start my day. I had images of Ali dancing in my head!

Our dinner is the standard Christmas fare.

Turkey
Potatoes (NOT mashed if I have the final say)
Stuffing
Wild rice casserole
Green bean casserole
Steamed yellow and green beans with chile/garlic
Joe's coleslaw
Another salad to be named later
Cherry cheesecake
Chocolate tart with peanut butter whipped cream
assorted baking (shortbread, nut roll, gingerbread, krumkake, tea rings etc)

There will also be mulled wine this year. I'm trying out a new syrup recipe. I'll post if it works out.
