What are you having for Christmas Dinner?

I thought it would be great to hear what everyone here does for Christmas Dinner. Being that it's such a big food day, I'll bet there's lots of great traditions out there.
Here's what we do:

Appetizers

Mushroom Turnovers
Shrimp Cocktail
Swedish Meatballs
Cheeseball
Pate
Cold-Smoked Salmon

Dinner

Wiener Schnitzel with Bearnaise Sauce
Spaetzle
Red Cabbage sauteed with Onions and Caraway
Green Beans with Country Ham, Corn and Potatoes.
Baby Green Salad with Herb Vinaigrette

Dessert

Hot Fudge Sundaes with Brownies
Polish Coffee (Made with Krupnik, a Polish honey liquer)

Everyone have a Merry Christmas, and put on those buffet pants!

Definitely Chinese. Always a good choice on Christmas.


This year I hope to hit all the major food groups, whisky, wine, beer, chips, salsa. And some junk food. the traditional stuff does nothing for me. Particularly turkey. ick. At its best it is horrible, dry, nasty garbage. And that's if you don't get hit w/ salmonella or campylobacter.

What are you having for Christmas Dinner?

I am on duty at the fire station on Christmas eve and Christmas day. I have started the prep cooking already. We are having the families in on Christmas Day for:

Turducken;P ;P

Yes, we will partake of this luscious feast and treat the families again.

A turducken is a boned turkey stuffed with a boned duck stuffed with a boned chicken. The chicken if stuffed with oyster dressing, between the duck and the chicken is a layer of sausage dressing, and around the duck is a layer of cornbread dressing. The whole thing goes in the oven and cooks at 190 degrees for 13 hours.

Along with the turducken we will have:
Candied yams
Mashed potatoes
Sweet Potato and eggplant gravy
String beans
Sourdough dinner rolls.

I have made this 3 years in a row at the station on Thanksgiving. Each time as we served the families, the quick call went off. Two years it was for structure fires, and the other year it was for a traffic accident. I hope we can all sit down together and enjoy dinner this year.

better get hoppin'!! my wife took today off from work to start getting everything ready. shoot...the brisket alone takes about 4-5 hours including prep time let alone everything else she's going to prepare ahead of time.

the more you can do ahead of time the better. that means a LOT LESS STRESS on the day of the dinner. and more time for coCktails!! ;f

well I feel like ***** right now so probably Raman noodles and beer:( If I can dig up some more money and feel like going to the store maybe I can get a box of mac and cheese instead of the noodles.














Or I guess if I feel better tomorrow I could eat with the family and have turkey, Ham and all the other stuff.

Well I decided.

I got a duck from the market, some fresh asparagus, fresh spinach, and a bag of Yukon Gold potatoes to mash. I will roast the duck with rosemary, apples, celery, and onions in the cavity and make duck gravy from the juices of the pan.

This is my FIRST foray into cooking duck... wish me luck! DUCK LUCK, I guess it would be called! Hee hee.

good DUCK LUCK, but that's pretty much how I do my ducks when I buy them whole but I take away the celery and add a few strips of season bacon and a few garlic cloves.

Sean, my family does the traditional Italian Christmas Eve dinner too. We won't be with them this year and I decided it wouldn't be the same having it without them.

A friend of mine said he never liked duck but he finally found a recipe better than all the rest. He called it the cardboard recipe. You put two or three layers of cardboard down under the duck and then roast it in the conventional manner. When the duck has finished roasting, throw the duck in the trash and eat the cardboard. ;f ;f I hope your duck dinner turns out divine. I personally like duck and enjoy it two or three times a year.

Merry Christmas
