Christmas Dinner?

What do you usually have for Christmas Dinner and Dessert? We usually have ham or turkey with mashed potatoes and stuff like that, similar to Thanksgiving. Last year however we had lasagna and turkey. We also got a big container of cookies and a container of danish's from Costco, along with a chocolate cake from our uncle.

Turkey and/or ham. Love maple glazed ham, soooo delicious. We also have mashed potatoes, a veggie, rolls, sweet potatoes w/marshmallows, bean salad and usually a couple of pies, a cake and cookies. Mmm...

For Christmas Eve, we have ham and baked mac and cheese. The great things about Christmas Day dinner is that's it's Thanksgiving Part II: turkey, dressing, corn cassarole, mash potatoes and gravy. It's so worth the year long wait!

Yummy..you guys are making me hungry! Christmas Eve varies..its usually a buffet style at my In Laws.. we usually do have Ham and Turkey though and everyone brings a dish or two. Christmas Day dinner is at my house. Spiral Ham, mashed potatoes, homemade stuffing, greenbean casserole, deviled eggs, peas, corn, brown and serve rolls....Christmas cookies and some sort of pie. Gosh I could go for a nice hearty meal like this right about now

Well this year I wanted to make something different for Christmas Dinner - Prime Rib however the kids had a fit. They want the tradition dinner - spiral ham and home made mac and cheese. Will also make a broccoli casserole, corn, peas and rolls. Dessert : pumpkin pie and apple pie.

I may do the prime rib for New years day!

We usually have Turkey and Prime Rib/Beef roast mashed potatoes, stuffing, and such, along with cookies, and pies, and one of my favorites Friendly's Jubilee ice cream roll.

Before my aunt moved to FLA in 1993 she used to have more of an Italian themed dinner with lasagna, antipasto, cannolis and so on

Hmmmm...I'm hungry after reading all these posts!

We always have turkey and the last few Christmasses I make a cottage role as well. We have all the fixings...stuffing, potatoes, carrots (and other veggies), etc. For desert it is normally apple pie.

Turducken!! I saw Paula Deen prepare one of those. It looked so good I wanted to reach into the TV and grab a bite! I never tried to prepare one before, but I sure wish somebody I knew would and I could try it.

Corn Cassarole? That sounds different. Please share the recipe if it isn't too much trouble. I would like to try it.

Cottage role? I have never heard of that. Care to share that recipe with us?
