    What Are you Having For Christmas Dinner?
    This is kind of like the earlier thread on Christmas Eve dinner, but for Christmas Day itself. I was curious about what people traditionally have for dinner on this day. We used to do the full turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, etc. thing, year after year, but with Thanksgiving being only such a short time ago, we have decided to break with tradition this year.

    This year, we are having a big lasagna! Easy to prepare, low stress and very good.

    What is everyone else for the usually very tradition bound dinner?

    Bit like your tradition set-up but with roast potatoes, roast parsnips, carrots, gravy and Roast Duck (instead of turkey)

    Tourtière (= meat pie), Caesar salad, pickled beets, Yule Log, red wine.

    No turkey this year, at least not yet. Maybe for New Year's.

    That sounds really good!




    For lunch (at my girlfriends house): I had Ham, mashed potatos and gravy, stuffing, rolls, corn and for desert Apple Pie and Chocolate Cake. (all home made).

    For dinner at home I'm having more Ham Sweet Potatos and some more stuff. And for desert: Pumpkin Pie!

    Wow, sounds good. Reminds me that we are also having a homemade Caesar salad, a fresh apple pie and a robust Cabernet Sauvignon.

    Korean style BBQ. Our family doesn't really celebrate Christmas. Besides recognizing the 'religious' significance, we just spend the time chillin with family and friends.
    Nothing is more itis inducing than a bowl of white rice, and Korean style marinated sliced prime rib with spicy kimchee and a nice glass of fine wine.

    Unfortunately, that is just about what I did. I ate WAY too much! Groan!!
