  • What are you making for Christmas?

    I'm starting my Christmas grocery shopping this week with the intent to be done by Friday. I'm going to 'roast' something, just not sure what it will be yet.

    What's one everyone's menu? (Or are you farther behind than I am? )

      Not my favorite. Now if you were making chili rellenos I might drop in for bite.

        My wife makes awesome chili rellenos... But her tamales are even better... Especially the Oaxaca cheese & jalapeno tamales.

        She'll usually make 4 different types of tamales:
        Carnitos (shredded pork w/ ancho chili paste).
        Cheese & jalapeno.
        Refried beans.
        Raisins & nuts (sweet tamales).

        I'm not allowed to help... Or even be in the kitchen till it's time to clean up...

            Just follow the directions on its label and you can't go wrong. Butterball turkeys are infused with a butter/margarine, plus turkey stock solution to keep the meat moist. It makes the cooking practically fool-proof.

                We'll have a houseful of people, so I'll be cooking a boneless ham, plus a medium-rare, bottom round roast beef for our Christmas main dishes. We'll also have candied sweet potatoes, garlic and horse radish mashed potatoes, an au-jus gravy, a green bean casserole, kernel corn, plus corn bread and a multi-vegetable tossed salad.

                That doesn't even speak about the desserts afterwards. Merry Christmas everyone!!

                    I'm making nothing. My sister and I pitch in money 50-50 and we buy Christmas food from a Polish deli. We celebrate and eat at my sister's. Our parents live in Poland.

                      We had Lobster and italian Frutti di Mare salad as anti pasti followed by Quiche lorraine and a bit of bread and cheese to finish.

                      Tomorrow will be lamp and the day after Turkey.

                      Also every day will see a large breakfast with various smoked fish, bread cheese and meat like wild boar cut. Oh and for in between Stollen, Nut-cake, butter cookies, Lebkuchen etc. We then cerimoniously explode with a piece of peppermint-choclate.

                          Elle, a Butterball is brand of turkey famous for being injected with butter. It is meant to keep the turkey moist when baked/roasted in an oven. Deep frying turkeys has become an American fad the last decade of so, being very dangerous and sometime starting a massive oil fire that can burn down a house. I was wondering if the injected butter might make a Butterball turkey even more dangerous than a normal turkey.

                          Yes, the Mars bar is sometimes fried, along with just about anything that is bad for you.

                              bon apetite

                              Been a rough year so we kept it simple. Corned eye-of-round with our favorite vegies, flaky biscuits, and slab of cheese cake.

                              Have a great Christmas everyone.
