What are you making for Christmas dinner?

I've got to go shopping for Christmas dinner in the morning and I was wondering what all of you are making.

I have a beef tenderloin that my grandmother sent me from Omaha Steaks. Of course I don't know how to cook that.... He he .

Hahha that's a good question. I think I'm making loin of pork, pasticcio (greek lasagna), maybe some baked chicken, cream of corn, some potatoes in the oven a salad, and not sure on what else.

We have the tradition of eating a big nice breakfast on Christmas morning (casseroles, etc) then I fix chili in the crockpot for dinner that night. It is just my husband, my 3 yr old and myself for Christmas. We get to spend the whole day playing in our pjs without a lot of stress and mess of cooking. Great way to enjoy each other!

WE GO TO MY MOMS HOUSE FOR LUNCH. THANK GOD SHE TAKES CARE FOR ALMOST EVERYTHING. WE HAVE A HUGH LUNCH, USUALLY TURKEY, HAM, THE WORKS. MY SISTER AND I USUALLY FIX A DESSERT OR PICK UP THE LITTLE THINGS FROM THE STORE (PAPER PLATES, CUPS, ECT.)
I GUESS WE HAVE IT REALLY GOOD. I WOULD HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO COOK ALL THAT FOOD. I THINK I NEED TO CALL MY MOM AND SAY THANK YOU IN ADVANCE.

Polynesian family here: making a giant pork shoulder and rice. Anything else is extra and doesn't matter much. :) Cake for dessert, because we have plenty of cake mix and won't have to buy anything.

We make loaded potato soup (see here http://publixpennypincher.blogspot.com/2009/12/whats-for-christmas-eve-dinner-loaded.html )on Christmas Eve and then a big breakfast Christmas morning. We'll have leftovers all day long!

We do the normal Christmas dinner- Ham, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, corn and green bean casserole, with rolls and I am making an apple pie. We stay home and anyone who drops in brings something besides what I am cooking (deviled eggs, relish tray, dessert, etc.) Never even thought of making something other than that- like chilli or a big breakfast and having left overs ! Cool ideas

My Mom has to drive to Dallas to pick my sister, from North Dakota, and her husband up at the airport that afternoon. My brother's family can't come until Sunday. We are still having a Christmas dinner, but not traditional. We are making Paula Deen's BBQ meatloaf. It is so AWESOME! You make your own sauce and you baste the thing like every 15 mins. This should be a staple recipe in your homes. Probably going to make the Brown rice spinach & cheese casserole that moneysavingmom always makes. It is great too! You can find the BBQ meatloaf on www.foodnetwork.com ...just search for it. Even the kids love it. -Lowry517 (Blogger still isn't taking my password...what's with that??)

We have a SUPER cheesy lasagna for dinner every Christmas with cesar salad (homemade dressing and croutons) and garlic bread. I can't wait.

For Christmas we change our theme every year. Sometimes Mexican, Chinese, this year is Italian. Im making lasagne rolls, fettucini alfredo, caesar salad and breadsticks. For dessert-panetone cake!

Ever since we moved to Texas I have been making fajitas for Christmas dinner! We used to have ham, but it seemed like a rerun of Thanksgiving and the fajitas are good! Ham just got bumped to Easter.

after reading these posts I might rethink christmas dinner next year. I'm cooking a ham dinner for 10 people. Everyone brings something so that helps. We're doig a monkey bread in the morning for the kids to pick at with some fresh fruit. I like all these other ideas, the ham is good, but then we end up doing it again for easter. Wish I could BBQ, but here in NH everything is presently under snow...

we are having a prime rib roast with twice baked potatoes,crescent rolls and broccoli/cauliflower with cheese.

Lizz said...

I make Tofurkey and gravy, mashed potatoes, rosemary potatoes, mexican corn, green beans, stuffing, broccoli/cheese casserole, and rolls. My sister brings a turkey, my brothers bring a side each. For dessert: Chex Muddy Buddies, chocolate pie, Christmas cookies, fudge. We decorate our own cookies at the party because I'm a cake decorator, so I set up some long tables and the kiddos have a blast. Yum!

We have appetizers all day long! No big meal, no cooking. It's a day off from the MADNESS!

Maureen said...

Once a year we treat ourselves to my husband's standard middle eastern fare. We have lahmejeune (armenian pizza), baba ghanoush, salad, hummus, and several armenian pastries. Easy to make and easy to clean up...and delicious! yummmmmmm can't wait!!!

Christmas Eve I'm making quiche and some sides for just us (husband, 3 kids, me) then heading to my mom's Christmas afternoon for snacky stuff all day. Husband's mom will be serving dinner that night - no idea what! OH and Christmas morning, we have Jesus' birthday cake for breakfast :)

my husband also received a box of omaha steak from his coworker, and we are planning to BBQ those on Christmas day. In case you wonder, we are at south Florida so it's still warm enough to do BBQ.

WE are having egg casseroles in the morning while opening gifts, snacks during the day and then Costco chicken soup for anyone who is still hungry in the evening.
