    I thought it would be great to hear what everyone here does for Christmas Dinner. Being that it's such a big food day, I'll bet there's lots of great traditions out there.
    Here's what we do:

    Appetizers

    Mushroom Turnovers
    Shrimp Cocktail
    Swedish Meatballs
    Cheeseball
    Pate
    Cold-Smoked Salmon

    Dinner

    Wiener Schnitzel with Bearnaise Sauce
    Spaetzle
    Red Cabbage sauteed with Onions and Caraway
    Green Beans with Country Ham, Corn and Potatoes.
    Baby Green Salad with Herb Vinaigrette

    Dessert

    Hot Fudge Sundaes with Brownies
    Polish Coffee (Made with Krupnik, a Polish honey liquer)

    Everyone have a Merry Christmas, and put on those buffet pants!

    Definitely Chinese. Always a good choice on Christmas.


    This year I hope to hit all the major food groups, whisky, wine, beer, chips, salsa. And some junk food. the traditional stuff does nothing for me. Particularly turkey. ick. At its best it is horrible, dry, nasty garbage. And that's if you don't get hit w/ salmonella or campylobacter.

    I am on duty at the fire station on Christmas eve and Christmas day. I have started the prep cooking already. We are having the families in on Christmas Day for:

    Turducken;P ;P

    Yes, we will partake of this luscious feast and treat the families again.

    A turducken is a boned turkey stuffed with a boned duck stuffed with a boned chicken. The chicken if stuffed with oyster dressing, between the duck and the chicken is a layer of sausage dressing, and around the duck is a layer of cornbread dressing. The whole thing goes in the oven and cooks at 190 degrees for 13 hours.

    Along with the turducken we will have:
    Candied yams
    Mashed potatoes
    Sweet Potato and eggplant gravy
    String beans
    Sourdough dinner rolls.

    I have made this 3 years in a row at the station on Thanksgiving. Each time as we served the families, the quick call went off. Two years it was for structure fires, and the other year it was for a traffic accident. I hope we can all sit down together and enjoy dinner this year.

    better get hoppin'!! my wife took today off from work to start getting everything ready. shoot...the brisket alone takes about 4-5 hours including prep time let alone everything else she's going to prepare ahead of time.

    the more you can do ahead of time the better. that means a LOT LESS STRESS on the day of the dinner. and more time for coCktails!! ;f

    well I feel like sh*t right now so probably Raman noodles and beer:( If I can dig up some more money and feel like going to the store maybe I can get a box of mac and cheese instead of the noodles.














    Or I guess if I feel better tomorrow I could eat with the family and have turkey, Ham and all the other stuff.

    Well I decided.

    I got a duck from the market, some fresh asparagus, fresh spinach, and a bag of Yukon Gold potatoes to mash. I will roast the duck with rosemary, apples, celery, and onions in the cavity and make duck gravy from the juices of the pan.

    This is my FIRST foray into cooking duck... wish me luck! DUCK LUCK, I guess it would be called! Hee hee.

    good DUCK LUCK, but that's pretty much how I do my ducks when I buy them whole but I take away the celery and add a few strips of season bacon and a few garlic cloves.
