So what are you planning to cook for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day dinners?
For us on Christmas Eve we are having Italian Wedding soup, pecan crusted chicken breasts, rice pilaf, green beans and a salad. For dessert if anyone has room we're just going to have ice cream with warm berry sauce.
Christmas Day dinner we are having a feast, with turkey, stuffing, gravy, ham, meatballs, scalloped cauliflower, glazed carrots, some sort of rice dish, mashed potatoes, salad and homemade bread. Dessert will be the same as Christmas Eve if anyone has room. I'm not making lunch on Christmas Day... I'm just going to put out some appetizers and we can graze until dinnertime. I know it's alot of food but the kids love having the Christmas feast every year. I'm doing the rice as my mother in law will be here and she can't eat potatoes. (I also hate potatoes and also would prefer rice!)
Boxing day I'm working, but I have the rest of the week off so the turkey carcass is going to go into the freezer and likely on the 27th or 28th I'll roast it for soup.
