My thought has turned to Christmas dinner,....

what traditional foods are served every Christmas dinner? In my family, it is alway the noon time mean, some you pervs that were unlucky enought not to born in the south, would call this "lunch" but here we eat dinner in the middle of the day, and supper is the final meal of the day...

the star of our table would be a golden brown baked turkey, (or chicken)
cornbread dressing,
deviled eggs,
a dish most are problaly familiar with a 7 layer salad of some sort
usually scalloped extra cheesy pototoes
green bean casserole
and probaly another type of bean
hot rolls
oh and usually sometype of the jelly is my fav,m but i like the green too
deserrt....a few different types of pies, and one of my sisters favorite cakes...and you aint eat cake till you have had a cake made by my sister....yummy

oh and cranberry sause....the jelled stuff that slides out of the in an almost obsense way

anybody readyfor a little holiday talk yet?

I tend to graze myself so, the three distinct daily meals, tend to blend in with my grazing habits!

Ohhh... and ONLY when I see the first snowflake, am I willing to even consider holiday awareness!

Holidays? Oh hell, why not....

Years ago, Thanksgiving was with turkey and all the trimmin's...sweet potatoes, oyster dressing and dressing without oysters for those fussy people. Gravy, deviled eggs, mashed potatoes, some sort of veggies and of course pumpkin pies 'n some kind of cake. A hodge podge of desserts carried in by family members.

Christmas? Not so elaborate. Usually ham, potato salad, baked beans and family carry in food 'n desserts. Christmas gatherings was usually on Christmas eve or day and those were hectic for each family anyway so we didn't put a lot of effort into the meal because back then we exchanged presents and the kids were too excited to do anything formal.

Now we just keep it casual and rarely do we get together on Christmas. Often after the first of the year. The family is so fragmented with so many directions to go it is sometimes a real headache to make plans.

welll....laws...yes, how did i forget sweet potatos...

since the youngerts have so many stops to make, her mother, her father, his mother, his father....a mix of grand parents, so many times we have"thanksmas" and it workes out wonderfulyl, also my deceased mothers birthday is on Dec 17, so we try to have it on her birthday, or the closest weekend as possible.

so our family dinner is always the first one, therefore the one you enjoy more, the kids havent had a gift opening session yet, so they are very excited...and you dont have to make all those comprimces that will occur as the calender fills.

the only sad thing .....many times this leaves me alone and Christmas day and Thanksgiving, but i dont really mind

The green bean casserole is always in demand with my family. On occasion we will change it up a little by adding a can of asparagus to it or just making it substituting asparagus for the green beans entirely.

Smaller gathering so not nearly as much variety as T Day but still served in the two to three range. Sometimes it would be turkey, sometimes ham, sometimes a large roast. Unlike T Day with many families where everybody assembled at one place, everybody usually did the Christmas opening of presents at their own homes before heading off to eat some where, if even leaving their own home.

Fun fact: In Japan, the traditional Christmas meal is fried chicken.

My family never did a big, traditional Christmas meal. On a few occasions, we tried to have one. I remember a Christmas ham, and a couple of years where we had Cornish game hens. I always ended up eating Chinese food, because it was the only thing open.

For Thanksgiving, though, we had all the standards (Turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce etc.). We also always prepared green beans wrapped in bacon. Sweet potato pie and some dark chocolate pie were also staples. My mother always made the kids make at least one dish to spread the workload a bit. When I was young, the only "cooking" I could do was to mix pistachio jell-o with whipped cream and pineapple chunks. I always think of that when I think of holiday meals.

Anyway, it is waaaaay to early to be thinking of winter. Summer is still hanging around. It's getting to be harvest season. Time to start making pumpkin pie and delicious things with cinnamon and nutmeg. Oh, and cider! But we have months left before we have to pretend to like fruitcake and Egg Nog.

NO!! It's too early to think of Christmas!!!!!

Traditional Christmas dinner at my parents house is really quite simple. Ham, mashed taters, carrots, dressing, dinner rolls, and pumpkin and cherry pies with whipped cream.
