Christmas meal

Post  bowhnter on Fri Dec 21, 2007 12:06 pm

Well, it's almost that day, what's on your menu for Christmas?

Here we are foregoing the traditional ham and big meal. I will be smoking a Pork Butt and brisket, and we will be making some apetizers to graze on Christmas eve and leftovers for Christmas.
Will be trying Roxy's mustard sauce for the pork too!
Plan to put some of Ian's ACDs on the menu sometime next week as well!

How about y'all?

Originating in warmer climes (Africa), it was generally to hot to have a Christmas lunch time meal, so we always held our main do on Christmas Eve. We've found this habit hard to shake, but it has the advantage of leaving Christmas day blank, so the kids can play with their toys, whilst the adults can kick back and relax (not trying to cook vast amounts of food, whilst also making running repairs to the now "not so new" toys).
I'm going to be doing a Turducken and the ladies will do all the sides (taters, brussel sprouts and such) and puddings.

Ham, scalloped potatoes, green beans and home made rolls. It's been traditional here for us and since the kids all come home for Christmas dinner and that's what they want, that's what we fix.

My son's birthday is Christmas Eve and we have always let the kids pick the dinner on their birthday. It used to be hot dogs and hamburgers. He's going to be 22 so it's Rib Eyes and baked potatoes this year. Go figure!

Standing meal for past 20 years has been Prime Rib, cut from the bones, rolled in seasioning, then re-cradled. Twice baked taters, fresh green beans & a cesear salad. Chocolate cheese cake & sour cream apple pie for desert.

This year I had planned to also try and smoke a small roast beast, along with some smoked BBQed oysters & some of Mack's ACD's for "horse de overies"

BUT . . . been sick this year so I have had to cancel the family for at least a week. So my Christmas meal will probably be chicken soup & a piece of toast. Sad

A very Merry Christmas to all Y'all, U.J.
