I'd love to make a leg of lamb with my "famous" :roll: rosemary/dijon pesto but no one would eat it but my husband, son and myself -

Steaks probably. Definitely a turkey for Thanksgiving, and I might do that again at new years. Actually, I want to roast turkey breast more often during the fall and winter months. Great meal at a great price.

Lamb's too pricey, but I would love to try mutton along with beef in a goulash. :)

Here, here, Otter! This is the same in my family...with the insertion of Burns Night in January with Haggis! (You know this is otherwise known as Pate'...I can't believe the disgruntlement over such a fine dish!)

Audeo, that's what my parents served every year when I was growing up, so it just seems unnatural to have anything else. Never done the haggis thing tho.

In my family Christmas was a virtual replay of Thanksgiving. I lived near them for a few years, and any time I tried to insert anything remotely different (for example, replace the turkey with a goose), Mom would reply, OK, but then I'll bring the Turkey. Since the purpose was to have Mom do LESS work, I'd be in a corner. Back to recreating Thanksgiving at Chritsmas. I didn't live near my family for long, and I think my biggest successes were a big prime rib roast and the year I did a lot of game hens. They were supposed to be a l'orange, but I learned that the teens I was cooking for love oriental cooking so I added garlic and soy to the sauce at the last minute and they were a huge hit.

My family always has a main dish of Ham. There are people in the family that don't like ham... so then there's always a chicken or beef main dish, also.

Growing up, we always had 'roast beast' for Christmas dinner. Having married a Southerner, tho, and with the whole crew coming in for Christmas dinner, it's ham this year.

Maybe I'll do a gingersnap crust on the ham, and a bourbon/maple/pecan/white raisin sauce - hmmmmm!

doesn't anyone do the feast of the seven fishes? we need more italians around here.
well, technically, the feast of the 7 fishes is on christmas eve, but it's one of my favorite holiday meals...

i don't think we had a standard christmas dinner, just whatever roasts or fowl were fresh, or more likely on sale.

Bucky, I've helped prepare the "Feast", but never served it in my family (PA German/Irish) growing up! It is an awesome spread, and interesting to see the ways people 'cheat' by combining different fishes in one dish.
