No idea what's for Christmas dinner. But we are hosting Christmas Eve for my family and we'll be (okay, JM will be) cooking a Beaufort Stew.

If anyone is unfamiliar with this wonderful concoction, it's shrimp, sausage, potatoes and corn boiled together with crab/shrimp boil or other similar seasoning. You cook it in a huge pot, dump it out on a table covered with paper and everybody grabs what they want.

I can't wait!!!

I have no clue.

QS mentioned a ham but I'm kind of keen on hitting up the Waffle House around lunch time for some killer hash browns and taking the staff a box of cookies.

Dessert suggestion for Abby:
Trashy Brownies. With ice cream and chocolate sauce of course.

I have no idea - I want to eat something healthy since I haven't been doing that lately.

My son might be in town, which means vegetarian. He's always raving about tofurkey but I just can't. do. that. So traditionally, we break out the Morningstar Spicey Black Bean Burgers and sweet potato fries.

But if he doesn't make it till after Christmas, I'll probably go nuts with brussels sprouts and maybe roast chicken

You are welcome to crash. Bring your Derby pie with you!

If anyone is unfamiliar with this wonderful concoction, it's shrimp, sausage, potatoes and corn boiled together with crab/shrimp boil or other similar seasoning.

This is called "low-country boil" here and it is SO yummy!

Trashy Brownies. With ice cream and chocolate sauce of course

What are these trashy brownies??

We are going out for Chinese

I totally suggested that to my family! Didn't go over but I'd still love to do it one day!

NIK- Happy Birthday to DS. Your menu sounds delicious. As does HUFI's and whattodo's.

THAT ^^^^^ is a Trashy Brownie.

Christmas Eve - we're going to a family party where they have a potluck style dinner. Usually ham, pasta, chicken, salads, and lots of finger-food desserts.

Christmas - SO's family is having roast-beef, I think. My family is having ham, turkey (for my aunt who doesn't eat ham), and there was talk of a lasagna. Not sure what the sides will be, my guess is usually stuff - some kind of potatoes, salad, veggies. Pies and cookies for dessert. I'm pretty sure we're eating at my aunt's house.

It's hard to say for sure when you're not doing any of the cooking!

ninebark posted 12/19/2013 11:09 AM

Turkey
apple sage stuffing
Cranberry brie bites
Green been casserole
I haven't decided on the potatoes just yet
Ginger glazed carrots
Gravy
Rolls

Pumpkin cheescake with salted pecan brittle
Apple pie
Christmas crack (yes its a dessert)

itainteasy posted 12/19/2013 11:57 AM

Some kind of beef dish, because there is a poultry allergy in the family, other than that, no idea, as I am not cooking!

lynnm1947 posted 12/19/2013 12:03 PM

My son is cooking the starter and main course for dinner so apart from turkey, I have no idea what he's doinf\g. I am in charge of appetizers and desserts. I'm doing something with shrimps, and a baked brie with crackers and my homemade spicy red pepper jelly. Desserts will be an eggnog cheesecake and a chocolate hazelnut (flourless) torte.

(mouth watering)

Such a helpful thread since I'm still in the "hmmm? What should I cook for Christmas Dinner" phase. Keep the ideas coming!
