Lightbulb What is your Christmas menu?

I'm just writing out our Christmas dinner menu plans and wondering what others are doing. I've included many non-SB items to cover the variety of tastes, but then also enough vegetables that I can bulk up on those and just sample the rest.

Some kind of veggie soup (or V8 for me)

Turkey
Mashed Potatoes
Ginger Sweet Potatoes
Corn kernels
Red cabbage
Swiss Chard
Green beans
Roasted turnips

SB Cheesecake + regular xmas baking

Coffee, wine


Christmas morning is a write-off due to the traditional cinnamon buns! But it's one day so I'll enjoy it guilt-free.

We have four adults and two children joining us so I will be fixing a variety of foods.

Butterball turkey (they add no fat to their basting solution)
stuffing (whole wheat bread - converted for South Beach)
gravy
Spicy Cranberry Relish (uses Splenda)
Regular canned cranberry sauce
Sesame Ginger Asparagus
Steamed broccoli
Candied sweet potatoes (SF orange marmelade and a little honey)
Strawberry banana muffins (splenda and whole wheat flour)
Inside Out Peanut Butter Cup cheesecake (phase 2)
fudge (Brian was selling. I'm hoping everyone else eats it so I won't be tempted)

We go to my sister's place for dinner around 6 PM with ten adults and one adorable baby who is 14 months. Joan serves the traditional turkey, stuffing, mashed taters, turnip (yick!) and green beans. I'll stick to white turkey meat and green beans plus the usual raw carrots and celery that she always serves. (I do not intend to mention SBD because her two skinny daughters know all about evey diet on earth although they've never been on one or read a book! Some subjects are best avoided!) Dessert will be a fresh fruit salad with her Christmas baking which I will probably avoid by just cracking a few walnuts over my salad.

Our traditional Christmas breakfast will be ww bagels with cream cheese, smoked salmon and capers. Well, Mary was Jewish and probably Joseph invited the shepherds to stay! We sometimes have champagne and OJ too.

:merry:

We're doing Disneyland on Christmas Eve which is usually when we make a big dinner so we're pushing that to Christmas Day.

In the morning:
Mom's Cinnamon Rolls

Christmas Dinner :
Spinach Salad
Prime Rib
Yorkshire Pudding
Twice Baked Potatoes
Homemade Horseradish Cream
Some kind of sinful dessert (maybe a chocolate eclair cake or bread
pudding)
I also baked all day this past Saturday and have everything from cookies to chocolate dipped pretzels to chocolate dipped mint Oreos. Needless to say, it's been tough being around my house this week and haven't really been OP but I fully intend to be next week.....hopefully.

First let me just mention that there probably is very few items I can eat on this menu at my DM but this is the ususal.


Liver pate & crackers
Cheeseball & crackers
Hopefully (but I haven't seen it yet) Veggie tray

Baked Ham
Caraway Rye bread
My moms super famous sugary baked beans.
Kielbasa
Saurkraut
Meatballs
Augratin Potatoes
Birthday Cake
Cheese cake

And numerous other things too good to mention. It sounds like I'll have to have a stash of veggies, pistachios and stick with the ham and drink lost of wine!

We are not very traditional downunder because we are 5th generation Kiwis so it will be whole fillet of beef stuffed with something yummy, marinated, and cooked on the BBQ with roasted golden kumara and asparagus salad and mediteranean vegetables. Dessert will be some type of chocolate pie and a platter of fruit (including fresh strawberries and chocolate dipping sauce), cheeses, nuts, dried figs and handmade chocolates.

Xmas eve dinner is BBQ steak and sausages with salads, garlic bread and cheesecake. I am providing the cheesecake and making it with l/f cream cheese, l/f sour cream and splenda with grated dark chocolate.
