Going to the in-laws, so I just make the salad and something else green --- usually an asparagus medley with mushrooms and redd peppers........The family relies on me to bring the healthy food choices.....

No idea yet, but possibly a large roast since my family likes Yorkshire pudding at Christmas.

We are vegetarian and my daughter's favourite what has become traditional christmas meal is a veg lasagne made with ricotta instead of white sauce. There will be others bringing but that is what I will be making. I will probably also make a christmas pudding ice cream (it is hot at Christmas where we live).

Not sure yet, but probably turkey since I didn't cook for Thanksgiving, and I LOVE turkey.

My mother-in-law makes Christmas dinner but we are bringing sweet potato casserole (the super health, super yummy recipe we used for Thanksgiving) and some healthy desserts as well.

12/3/12 7:06 P

I usually do a roast beef but not sure if it will be the same this year. Maybe I'll try something new - beef wellington or lamb chops or something

On Christmas Eve, I am making this...

and Wisconson style cheddar soup with bacon, my own recipe...
and we'll be having some bakery breads with that. During the day, we'll munch on veggies. Lots of veggies.

On Christmas Day, the plan is to have surf (shrimp, crab stuff) and steak, with salad or asparagus, and baked potato for dinner. During the day, leftover soup/chowder, veggies, deviled eggs, and bacon-wrapped, blue cheese stuffed dates. I'll probably make either pancakes, cinnamon rolls, or pumpkin muffins for breakfast.

I'm not cooking Christmas dinner, but do need to start planning our "second Christmas dinner". My sister is visiting the week after Christmas, so we will have another full family meal while she is in town.

Depends if I can get invited somewhere. If not, then the same thing I did for thanksgiving-- nothing. Just moved to a new state and because of work, will not be able to get to family. Maybe I will pull out a piece of steak or just have a salad. Christmas isn't about the food anyway. it's about JC.

Shrimp salad, turkey, stuffing, gravy, brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes & misc vegetables - all family traditional recipes. We used to have plum pudding with lemon sauce for dessert, but since my Mom died, no one knows how to make the pudding! Now my sister makes trifle for dessert.

We are going to do all individual serving foods - found a bunch of recipes that are done in muffin tins so that we can formally plate the dinner and not have a bunch of leftovers.

Yum, This all sounds good! It will either be cassarols or soups. I am bringing over lots of fruit and bread since all the rich food gives me a tummyache!

Last year we were invited to another couple's place for the meal.

Another turkey will be made along with roast beef (my brother in law has a turkey allergy) , I go the extra mile for my BIL because I couldn't imagine him watching everyone else eat and him just eating side dishes.
He always thanks me cause he knows I do make the roast beef special for him and he always tells me how much he appreciates it and enjoys it.
We'll have lots of veggies, stuffing and mashed potatoes (I even keep some stuffing out of the bird so he can enjoy some).
What will you be making?
