So whats everyone gonna do for Christmas dinner?
Im not sure where I wanna go with this. Maybe a prime rib (god I have not had that in so so long.....its expensive)


I will also have to do it either before Christmas or in the new year. Hub is gonna be away for the holidays visiting his daughter and his Dad.

We have turkey on Christmas Day with all the trimmings and ham hock on Boxing Day. We have tried goose but prefer turkey

We don't celebrate Christmas. Instead, there is an unwritten tradition that we get Chinese food on Christmas Day, since Chinese restaurants are some of the only places open here.

I should retitle this and add for other celebrations......Just how about December holidays?

I just remembered, we could have tamales! Since hubby wont be here and you can buy them already made (cause I aint going thru all that work for just two of us)
Although Chinese food also sound good. Could also consider going to the casino where they have some good restaurants.

I would love prime rib but don't know how to prepare it. So it may be turkey wings on the menu for two

Since it's only me, I never cook anything special. After reading this thread, I may have to do some Christmas traveling though.

Prime rib... sounds delicious.

Lamb... oh hell yeah.

Tamales.... yep, I make a wickedly good hot sauce. I could bring a gallon. And chips.

Pizza... can it be a prime rib, lamb, and tamale pizza?

Can't go wrong with that!

In Italy it is traditional to have ravioli stuffed with braised meat, or braised meat and polenta; and goose as a second course.
After that, IF you're still alive, you can have a slice of panettone.

I'd try it. lol.
As for the prime rib, I'd for sure have hubby cook it. My bil can cook a mean prime rib.
Lamb, I love it. oh just yum.

Christmas (& Thanksgiving) --- I HAVE to have turkey sandwiches, I look forward to this time of year ONLY for these sammies!!!! I quit the whole holiday thing after my youngest married & had his own family and I married my i/m and that was almost 20 years ago. I also do the same sammies at Easter if I can find a turkey... New Years I do this southern dish (NOT for the luck but for the taste of) Hoppin John (ham and black-eyed peas).. There is NO 'luck' in the dirty south/ or america anymore....

I packed a cooler full of mexican stuff.

Pork AlPastor marinated
home made tortillas
Crema
queso fresco
salsa
avocado
pan dulce
marzipan

I brought it in and bbq for her and we ate so much. I brought a special gold rosarie that I bought for her way back when we were fighting the case. She never got to actually touch it till now. We made a prayer and had a good time together. It was the best a Christmas in prison could ever imagine to be. I wish I could have taken a picture, it was pretty awesome. Most other visitors were bringing other food to reheat, or something quick, ours was a feast that many folks at home don't go after hahah

I think many of us do that. At least everywhere I've lived. It is a MoT thing.
