Her sister is cooking that on Christmas day.. :| :| :|

So I made some homemade broccoli and cheddar soup...
And pulled pork sandwiches.
Stuffed mushrooms
Cheese/crackers
And a couple of desserts


Different.

    We order Chinese food on Xmas Eve. Much easier, lol

    Then it's pretty much a repeat of Thanksgiving dinner on Xmas Day.

    If it were up to me we'd be having lamb or duck. But it's not up to me.
    Another habit says it's in love with you
    Another habit says its long overdue
    Another habit like an unwanted friend
    I'm so happy with my righteous self

    But it will all turn out good.
    I have to slow cook the pork for 8 hours tomorrow.
    The soup I made tonight. (Soup turned out OUTSTANDING!!!)

    I would do duck in a heartbeat.
    But of course my wife and her sister don't do duck. They wont do lamb either.

    I should have cooked meatloaf!

    Your menu sounds great. We do cracked crab on Christmas Eve and my husband makes an excellent Caesar salad. And cocktails. Of course we have cocktails.

    I thought of crab myself.
    But of course my wife will not eat seafood.

    I should have cooked cheeseburgers.

    My prince and I have a Christmas Eve tradition of lobster for supper.
    But this year there's a lot of family visiting and we'll be going to my mom's for posole and tamales.
    We'll have lobster New Year's Eve. :mrgreen:

    I had Christmas Carolers stop by and sing a few days ago.
    Made my day.

    I think tomorrow morning I am going to take Kathy ice skating.
    We will definitely have some hot chocolate.

    I know that at home in Germany, they will have potato salad with wieners tomorrow, venison on Thursday and port roast with all kinds of stuff a day after that ... For my home fix this year, I'm gonna do German style beef rolls, Rouladen. With red cabbage and sauerkraut. I'm drooling just writing this :oops: :lol:

    Happy holidays, everybody! Have the tums ready :P

    Yup, after the night at the cousin's house :) It's basically beef meat ( :think: we got wafer steaks, not perfect, but usable) with mustard, a slice of bacon, a little onion and some pickled cuke. All wrapped together and fried and then slowly cooked for hours and hours till it just surrenders to the fork :) I love them, and we got the meat to do them this year :D I'm not sure I will try Goldschlager :lol:

    On Christmas Eve I make a Cajun appetizer called Crabmeat Avery.

    Various spices and veggies mixed together and cooked with an egg to hold it all together. Toss with lump crab meat. Spoon into ramekins. Pour in heavy cream. Coat with homemade Cajun mayonnaise. Sprinkle with paprika and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes.

    It's beyond fantastic.

    No Green Bean Casserole?
  • Filets on the grill. Red wine (water for the kiddies - maybe we'll let them splurge and have a Propel).

    Do I need anything else? (eh. I'll throw some green beans in there for color)
    Sorry. The world doesn't work the way you tell it to.

    Eve:
    My wife's Uncle Joe's famous pasta extravaganza. A gravy (red sauce to some) that he works on all year...7 different types of tomato that he grows in his yard and jars for this batch. A thick pasta, homemade ziti or similar & homemade sausage, hard boiled eggs all mixed together with the gravy. Shit is downright amazing.
    They dont party too much so I will be the guy who evaporates 10-12 beers in a nice mellow evening with my wife's family.

    Christmas Day:
    A thanksgiving repeat -- turkey, stuffing, the whole deal

    Friday is Christmas 2 - my family is coming in and they put the entire process on hold so that they could celebrate with us...so Friday we do the whole presents, thanksgiving repeat part deux.

    We made Christmas Cookies last weekend -- about 20 dozen cookies for the different events/family members. If I dont see another cookie for a year that is cool with me but I imagine I will be gobbling them down all week.


    Pulled Pork sounds awesome, wish I could get my family to go for that!
    The love he receives is the love that is saved
