    So what are you guys cooking (or being served) for Christmas?

    Puppy 80, my son and I will be having baked ham and pineapple, with a gratin of root vegetables, and ice cream cake for dessert. We'll wash it down with a NY state reisling and some champagne.

    I made a bunch of Christmas cookies too: lemon glazed cookies, almond biscotti and chocolate and vanilla butter cookies.

    There'a also a whole wheat pumpkin and dried cranberry bread around in case any one gets the munchies?

    So what's cookin' with you?

    Merry Christmas.

    I'll be stuck behind the stove for hours in a little while. Lesse...the hell am I making...spinach and ricotta stuffed wild salmon...green beans with cranberry orange sauce (we didn't do Thanksgiving this years so this is basically a Thanksgiving carry over recipe), mashed potatoes (which sounds droll, but when you make them from scratch they're one of the most time consuming dishes)....uh.....I think that's it...it's only my parents, my sister and me this year, as opposed to the like 40+ people of other years with the rest of my family (and on my dad's side only).

    Ugh... Wish I was eating somewhere...

    Just making the normal Sunday lunch (same setup) with a starter and dessert...

    Starter: Garden Veg Soup

    Mains: Pork Roast with baked Potatoes, Pumpkin, Green Beans, Rice, and salad... (Traditional Afrikaans - rys, vleis en aartappels)

    Dessert: Mint Mousse with Ice Cream, or there is Christmas Cake with Brandy, I made about two months ago, or Tiramisu...

    Hate this period... Had about 30 people over on Saturday for a friend's 50th B-day, and today another 12... And all of them are very Afrikaans, so it has to be traditional food...

    Spending Xmas with mom and going to her retirement community's buffet dinner, which should be at 2 or 3 pm. It's the only place where x-lax is in the brownies on purpose.

    My annual deep dish eight layer Chrismukkah Lasagna!

    Serves at least 16. To serve restaurant dessert-style, swirl tomato sauce on a plate and top with a sprig of garnish. (It was supposed to be tricolor but red pasta was unavailable.) Manga!
