On with the Buddist Chef:
(1) Buddists are not Christians and do not celebrate Christmas, so I would be able to have the chef work on Christmas.
(2) Buddists are vegetarians and many of my family are vegetarians.

I would have huge numbers of delicious vegetarian dishes on a buffet. Every Chinese dish can be prepared as vegetarian by Buddist chefs. Sweet & Sour Pork, Roast Duck, Orange Beef, etc. So there would have to be tons of food - because the nonvegetarians would want to eat lots of it.

Then, I would order a Christmas dinner from Whole Foods Market - precooked. (They do this.) Roast turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, rolls, stuffing, Honey Baked Ham, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, peas, cold asparagus. Everything would be put on buffet tables.

However, the most important table would hold the pies. (With luscious, rich ice cream in many flavors for those who like it.) These pies would come from WHole Foods too - because they make great pie crusts. And I would order pies made without sugar. (Don't worry, they are loaded with butter. But they are sweetened with reduced fruit syrup which gives them incredibly intense fruit taste.) Apple, cherry, pumpkin pies. Then, Boston Cream pie, lemon meringue pie.

The chef would set up lots of decaf coffee pots and delicious tea too. And tasty red wines would be open and available. Along with milk, sparkling water,
lemonade and orange juice for the kids.

The chef would have several assistants, who would keep the dishes washed, and clean the kitchen so it was gleaming.

Turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, burn and serve rolls, grandma's homemade dressing and deviled eggs. Yummy!! Luckily this is my actual Christmas dinner each year (along with a few other sides).

Breakfast: Hmmmm...I'd have some left over dinner from my mom's house that we ate the night before- Turkey, Ham, Mashed potatoes and gravy. I'd also have some sugar cookies.

Lunch: I'd have Ham and mashed potatoes or cheesey potatoes

Dinner: More leftover Turkey, Ham, mashed potatoes, gravy or cheesey potatoes, sugar cookies. I'd probably squeeze in some christmas candy too! Then I'd lie down totally bloated and sick to my stomach!

I can't wait for christmas, heck I can't wait for Thanksgiving!!!!

My perfect Christmas meal would be:

Breakfast: French toast or pancakes with powered sugar and fresh fruit

Dinner: Spiral Ham with glaze, Maybe a nice turkey too, my Grandma's homemade dressing, mashed potatoes with a little bit of garlic and lots of butter, greenbean casserole, deviled eggs, corn, homemade rolls and for dessert pumpkin pie with lots of whipped cream and homemade Christmas cookies (an assortment please).

Yummy now Im starting to get hungry again and I just finished lunch!

ok, haha, we have the same meal here! But my mom makes this awesome stuffing, it has fresh herbs and apples in it. So good.
