My mom is having dinner this year, everything she makes is wonderful! Yum!
Ham, smoked turkey, hashbrown potatoes, green bean casserole, crescent rolls, relish tray, and so much more, I'm sure! Dessert, not sure what she has planned yet!

all i know is that i am in charge of desserts. we a going to do a beef tenderloin from what i hear. and whatever else the baby bro wants!! but that is ok, because he can cook. we used to do turkey, yuck!!!

Im totally laughing at "the relish tray" every year my grandma would serve that up with olives and celery with cheese and PB. Now that she is gone..in honor of her we use her "relish plates" and you know that stuff is the first to go! but we would make fun of her for doing it-but now that is what I really miss(the bantering not the celery)

Now the recipe-It is top secret so I have to ask my husband if I can share it-but once he makes it everyone wants him to bring it the next year. The one thing I can tell you with having to kill you afterwards is that it has 1 lb of butter! mmmmm good

There is always way too much food. My mom comes from a family of 7 brothers and sisters. I am usually in charge of a salad.....Broccoli Salad.

I am making turkey, gravy, potatoes, (white and sweet), dressing, corn, rolls, relish tray, pumpkin pie, chocolate pie, cookies and wine. My favorite thing is the wine. Since I have two hams there maybe ham too. It always amazes me at how long it takes to shop, cook, and clean up as you go and then you eat the meal in half an hour and there is more dishes. Oh well, we'll all be together and that is what makes it fun. The real reason for the season is what makes it so wonderful and lets us know we are truly blessed. Merry Christmas everyone.

We are having leftovers. And graze. Like cattle. All day long.
I make the dinner on Christmas Eve so that I am not in the kitchen all day Christmas day. A traditional dish: Turkey and gravy. From scratch. No cans or jars or packets. Also, we have cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning. Pillsbury, of course.

Oh, and something that we have to have during the season is Chex mix.

Woo Hoo! Thanks for the prize! Love the stamps, they are gorgeous!!

My grandparents are Spanish and originally from Las Vegas New Mexico, home of Hatch green chilis.
Every year at Christmas (Easter and Thanksgiving too) we get green chilis and pinto beans with our traditional dinner. JT thought it was weird at first, but he can't eat mashed potatoes anymore without mixing in green chili!

We do Thanksgiving at our house each year, and so my inlaws invite us up to their house for Xmas. Each year my mother inlaws plans to cook, but her sister inlaw invites all of us over to her house...and she cooks. Basically, our tradition is going over to our Aunts house, always on her menu is Ham, Salmon, several casseroles, and always her famous creamy potato salad. She cooks, we clean!

My Grandma usually makes ham - and if she knows I'm coming, I get a pineapple glaze with it! Yum! Since we always travel, I never make anything myself!

I was going to fix a prime rib roast but just got a call we've waited 5 years for and may be heading for Seattle. My son has been on the transplant list for a kidney and he got the call tonite that one is a match for him. If everything goes good with the cross match -- it'll be a go and I'll meet him there. What a Christmas present that will be.

We have always done the traditional meals. Now that our kids are older and voice their opinion more, we are gradually breaking away from old traditions. Our families are all spread out, so last year I cooked on Christmas eve also. NONE of the leftovers got eaten, lol. So this year we are headed to the Golden Phoenix and then to a movie....

BTW....I found some really cool vintage Christmas stuff!

Cara said...

Oh boy...its early...The Golden Phoenix is me!

Kristen said...

I will make Christmas dinner. The usual stuff...turkey, sweet potatoes, etc. I am looking forward to a very relaxing day with my family. I got my Christmas cards done yesterday...yeah!

We will have turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green bean casserole, fruit salad, candied yams, veggie tray to munch on, Boston Brown Bread, rolls,and pumpkin pie. I will be up hours before everyone else to get the pie done before putting the turkey in, which will cook while we open gifts. We will eat about noon or so then play games in the afternoon and see a movie that night.

To Linda Woerth,

I hope the kidney is a match for your son. That call has got to be the best present ever. God Bless your son, you and all your family. You all will be in my prayers and I will light a candle for him at mass on Sunday. Nancy Schurger

(of all the things written on Kathy's site I am so thankful for this. This will be a true Christmas miracle.)
