    With Christmas next Wednesday, what is everyone planning for a meal?

    This year, I will be grilling several pork center loins. In addition, we will be having mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie, and deviled eggs.

    This year will only be me, my wife, and my in-laws. I'm going to be doing pan seared arctic char, filet mignon, redskin potatoes, and steamed asparagus. Dessert is going to be a caramel apple custard pie courtesy of my wife.

    We thought about doing the same meal but that’s what I’ve cooked the previous 2 Christmas’. Plus it is not my father in law’s favorite cut of meat; he says it’s to fatty and not cooked to the point of being a hockey puck.

    Prime Rib, scalloped potatoes, couple different vegetables, wifes' fresh baked rolls, the usual condiments (pickled beets, home canned pickles, olives ,etc.) assorted pies and cakes. We'll be nibbling on homemade banana bread, prune bread and who knows how many different kinds of cookies all day. Usually have dinner about 6 PM.

    Usually have bacon, hash brown casserole, fancy french toast and eggs for brunch about 10 AM after gifts.

    We get to live off the left-overs for several days after (chili made from left-over prime rib is some of the best chili you'll ever have.)

    Whatever my 87 year old mother cooks. We will be bringing cheezy potatoes and vegtables. It will be a house full. This will be the first time in 3 years that my wife and I's children will all be here and together. Looking foward to that. The food will be good but that is secondary to having us all together. Wishing everyone on this site a merry and blessed Christmas.

    Can of Hormel chili or maybe Dinty Moore stew heated on the Coleman single burner in the spearing shack. Quietest day to be on the ice. Celebrated Xmas the week after Turkey day before the parents went to FL.

    Plan on going to our kids' for Christmas. They eat box food. Not normally a culinary experience unless my wife or I cook something.

  10. At Moms we will be Smoking a fresh ham glazed with a mustard rub. Homemade gnocchi's covered with either family made red sauce or homemade basil pesto, seared venison with a red wine butter au jus, Italian sausage with roasted peppers/potatoes/turnips. garden grown seared green beans, homemade egg bread, antipasto salad.
    i am sure more because someone usually in the family always brings a surprise wild-game, smoked meat and or Italian dish or two that is outstanding.
    Lots of libations including outstanding wine and most importantly ceegars for after dinner. i will finish the night at home cracking open a bottle of Bourbon and sipping life's pleasures in front of a fire watching a good movie with my wife. Merry Christmas All

    Having a simple finger food type dinner at the middle son's house Christmas Eve, so Christmas dinner will be just the girlfriend and myself. So I'm cooking a small prime rib and crab legs.

    Smoking spare ribs while our oldest is at work cleaning out the kennels. Christmas is going to be different this year, hope the wife transitions easily.
