What's Everybody Eating for Holiday Meals?

28 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm hungry and thinking about food, so I figured I would post about it as well.

For Christmas Eve, we are having a bastardized version of the Feast of 7 Fishes. I've invited a bunch of coworkers over and not everyone likes seafood so we added some non-seafood things and toned down the fish a bit.

We are having a bunch of appetizers:

stuffed clams, shrimp cocktail, scallops wrapped in bacon, deviled eggs, veggies and dip, buffalo chicken dip, lil smokies in bbq sauce, stuffed breads (eggplant, spinach, broccoli), antipasto.

For the meal: fried shrimp, linguine with clam sauce, spaghetti with crab and lobster sauce, tilapia.

For dessert: Italian pastries and cookies

Christmas Eve is a bigger deal in my house. Personally, I would just eat leftovers on Christmas Day because I love the meal so much. Hubby wants a Christmas Day meal though so we are having ham, mashed potatoes, baked sweet potatoes, green bean casserole and corn. Not sure about dessert. I might make a pumpkin pie.

For tomorrow, probably some saambaar (with bottle-gourd, daikon, and onion); Christmas Day, our church has a potluck breakfast followed by 7:00 am service, and we're making aaloo-matar and puris for it (other dishes there will likely include idli, dosai, ..., maybe some "american" food such as scrambled-egg with onion)

Tomorrow I'm making roasted cornish hens with cranberry wild rice and some sort of veggie. Apple crisps for dessert.

Christmas dinner is always my mum's standing rib roast with yorkshire pudding, potatoes, veggie, cranberries. And for dessert my stepfather's homemade ice-cream. I don't know what variety he'll have tomorrow.

Christmas dinner is French Canadian Tourtiere with mashed potatoes, green beans, salad, steamed carrots and tarte au sucre for dessert.

Christmas Eve dinner is at a friend's house and we're having turkey, stuffing, rolls, potatoes and gravy. I'm bringing over some creamy crab wonton wrappers.

Christmas Eve we don't really have a big dinner. I am making quiche and then we go to a family friend's house for a Christmas Eve party. Family of mine will be arriving before we go to the party.

Christmas Day is our big meal around 2pm. I am doing a lot of the cooking this year since my mom is coming from out of town, which makes me a little nervous doing a lot of it myself! :P I am making a version of the Italian's side of the family traditional meatball and sauce recipes. I've never done it by myself. Also making pasta and Sujeet is making samosas. We always have Italian on Christmas and now have samosas too every year. :)
