My hubs is gonna smoke a turkey and I’ll be making dressing(for the first time ever lol) sweet potato casserole and Mac n cheese, all on Christmas Eve. On Christmas Day I’m making chicken n dumplins.

My mom has a tradition to where we do a no tradition dinner. One year sea food, one year deep fried turkey, this year we’re doing tamales! We change it up every year and skip the basic turkey and gravy.


For family Christmas dinner - Ham, turkey breast, mashed potatoes w/gravy, hash brown casserole, green bean casserole, deviled eggs, Mac n cheese, whole kernel corn and rolls.
For Christmas day with just hubby, mom, son and I - ribeye steak w/ sauteed mushrooms and onions as well as blue cheese crumbles, potato salad, macaroni salad, Coleslaw and baked beans.

Nothing I’m skipping Christmas this year. I know humbug but that is how I feel

Ham, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, lasagna, Caesar salad with homemade caesar dressing, garlic bread, deviled eggs, and appetizers.

We always do beef at Christmas. So prime rib or tri tip or even just a nice roast depending on how many are here. Also we do a big salad, baked potatoes and sourdough rolls and a second vegetable sometimes asparagus, Brussel sprouts, rainbow carrots , broccoli some kind of vegetable.

Whatever you can manage so you can spend time with your guests.

If they’re coming from out of town is there an iconic food from your area? Cheese steak, grits, pecan pie, peach cobbler, avocado toast, posole?

I make this blueberry French toast, ham and cheese slides, cream cheese and sausage crossiants, bacon and homemade biscuits and gravy. We eat on that throughout the day.

Lasagna, a family tradition for the past 23 years


pot roast is always good. and it feeds a lot, can cook for hours, and smells delicious.

We’re ordering Chinese food! I’m excited to not be cooking this year :blush:
