In the past, Christmas has always meant homemade lasagna at my house. Luckily, DH doesn't care about tradition! I'm tossing around a few ideas for the main dish, maybe prime rib (if I can get financing - :D) or roast beef. What about side dishes, maybe an Atkins-friendly treat or two?
What is everyone else doing foodwise for Christmas or Hannukah?

Side dishes.... well you could always make the mock mashed potatoes out of cauliflower (you can even add cheese in it mmmmmmmm ). Check out the recipe area http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=83 I know you'll find lotta goodies there :D

If ya try that mashed cauliflower recipe, definately have a back up plan or try it before Christmas. I know everyone if differnt and a lot of peeeps like that but I hated it. :) I'll just have to save up my carb intake and have REAL mashed poatoes, lol.

allowing myself to head over budget on the carbs for xmas will stay off the booze ( a very slipperly slope otherwise) but will indulge in some spuds and fruit juice
