One year my Christmas present to my daughter's family was a standing rib roast with five ribs. Cooked to perfection along with the Yorkshire pudding done right in the roasting pan. Everyone of us could barely leave the table when we were through stuffing our faces. Not even a smidgen of room for the chocolate wreath cake. We had that for supper with a tall glass of ice cold milk. They are still talking about that meal.

I'm not a turkey eater, but I do like cranberries. Here is a link to my recipe:

We seldom cook a turkey for Christmas. Ham is the main attraction.
As for Turkey.....I like mine neat---maybe one ice cube--- and a good Dominican after dinner cigar.

Hoot, we are on the same wavelength but for me, no ice just a touch of spring water and a Cuban panatella. (lady size of course )

Consider making some cranberry chutney. Here's a good recipe: Madhur Jaffrey’s Ginger Garlic Cranberry Chutney {recipe}

I am also a fan of fresh cranberry relish. Here's my hubbies recipe:

Fresh cranberries - 1 lb
1 fresh, lovely crisp apple (with skin)
Some fresh orange rind, finely shredded and some of the juice
Dark brown sugar
3/4 cup walnuts
ground cinnamon
a little ground clove

Grind up the fruit, berries and walnuts and add sugar and seasonings to taste. Chill for several hours before eating.

We don't usually do turkey on Christmas, either. More likely a beef or pork roast.

I'm not a fan of cranberries, so I made this cherry sauce for Thanksgiving this year: Turkey Sauté with Fresh Cherry Sauce Recipe | Epicurious.com

It was really good.
