What do you guys have for Christmas dinner? We don’t do anything special on Christmas Day. But I think I’d like to fire up a prime rib this time.

Any traditions for you guys?

The hillbilly inlaws always want to do a nasty spiral ham.

I’m so tired of that


Prime rib sounds good

Might be a prime rib. Local market gives out a calendar every year with a discount coupon every month. This month's is for a standing rib roast, a whopping $10 off.

Not sure that's going to be enough to make it affordable this year, beef prices being what they are.

Might just have to see what nice cuts are remaining from the 1/4 steer we got this spring.

Or buy a ham. I like ham at Christmas. Even if I am celebrating the birth of a Jewish kid with a hunk of pork. blush

At Christmas it was always ham growing up. I’ve never changed. Cumberland Gap ham is one of my favorites.

At the risk of repeating myself many times over...

Because my mom was born and raised in (what used to be) Czechoslovakia and her family had been living in what used to be Germany for a few generations before that, we eat what used to be traditional there, even for Jews. Roast duck, red cabbage and potato dumplings are our Xmas eve dinner. Sorta weird since we don't do anything else Christmasy, but it became a tradition, I can cook a damn good duck/dumpling dinner and it's delicious.

I prefer to slice ham myself. I'm not a fan of little skinny slices. I like a manly slice of ham.

And I can make it sweet enough with some pineapple juice and slices and some maraschino cherries.

We always do Christmas at my sister-in-laws.
Never look forward to it, especially this year.

She is hell for woke, and couldn't possibly ever be wrong. Got into an argument with her on the phone the other night concerning Bidet's energy policy, or lack thereof. Told me I'm full of crap, and everything is going to be great.

I told my wife this morning that I should do something on Christmas Eve to get myself thrown in jail for a day.
No other way out!

we do pizza for Supper, and have done brisket for lunch.
By the time Christmas comes we are tired of holiday foods

tzone;
Good morning again my cyber friend, I still hope all is well in your world.

While I grew up eating roast goose for Christmas, since we've been married we've done a turkey.

When our girls came along, when one of them was younger they coined Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas to be "feast days" and that's sort of stuck.

Off the top of my head then it'll be roast turkey, whipped potatoes - with garlic and butter, mixed vegetables, creamed corn, mounds of stuffing, Brussels sprouts - because my good wife and son in law believe they're food and a bunch of pickle varieties.

Desert will be a pumpkin pie with whipped cream and either an apple or strawberry rhubarb pie with good vanilla ice cream - both always as one daughter likes one and the other, the other!

Thanks for the fun thread and for letting me remember feast days from years past and look forward to them in future as well.

All the very best to you all tzone as we head into Christmas.

Dwayne

We do prime rib for Christmas most years.

I don't know. Was trying to get my girls to commit. We've got elk, deer, ducks, a few geese, a turkey and a ham. Something out of that will get cooked. Probably have roasted blue cheese tomatoes, oyster casserole, green beans, rutabaga puree, and some others.

Christmas eve is always Swedish meatballs, spinach balls with spicy dipping Mustard, oysters and Christmas cookies.

We did prime rib for Thanksgiving. My eldest son was given a turkey at Thanksgiving so we will have it on Christmas day. Christmas eve will be Italian as usual. Both days will involve olives...
