I started out not making too much as we are going to MIL Christmas eve and SIL Christmas night. But now I'm making a turkey breast for DH as he doesn't like ham and a ham for me and dd as she doesn't like turkey. And mashed potatoes and mac and cheese, stuffing and a onion green bean casserole for me as they don't like veggies. But one thing Since Christmas eve is on a Sat I will be home all day to cook. So cooking everything then and won't have to cook on Christmas.

I am starting my cooking today.. Will even have the turkey. My DH has Friday thru Sunday off. so I figure if we can get started eating it all on Friday.. we might be able to just eat the leftovers thruout the weekend.. Which would mean no cooking for me on Christmas Eve or on Christmas Day.
We planned on getting out a bit just to look around at lights. maybe see what was left in the stores.. but guess what.. we may get SNOW.. so if we even stay home and just watch the snow thats allright with me.
Kids are dropping in on Saturday.. Should be a relaxing weekend..

And finally I will get rid of a turkey out of my freezer. since we went to their house for Thanksgiving.. I never cooked mine. The rest of the menu is whatever I have in the cabinet. Looks like quiche too.. as I have loads of cheese and eggs and such.

Merry Christmas sewwolf..

Merry Christmas to you also Pigling. I just finished my Christmas shopping while doing an errand for work. If I feel like it might pop out on Sat and get my dd a few more little things. I think I have a sprained ankle although I have no idea on how I did it. Just taking advil around the clock and hope it holds up through the holidays as I'm not going to Patient first until after Christmas. Thank goodness the majority of the stuff is done.

Subject: So whats everyone cooking for Christmas? Date: 12/22/11 10:39 AM

We're going to my in-laws ( husband's aunt and family) as we do every other year or so.... I consider her my mother in law since my husband's mom was sick most of his childhood and died when he was a teen...

anyhoo, she isnt the best cook...I know that going in & just enjoy being with family regardless...

I will wait til cook a decent spread on New Year's Eve that will hopefully clean out all of the crap out of my fridge/freezer so we can get to start 2012 on a good healthy note...

We always stay home on New Year's eve and don't do much of anything. But since my dd has finally discovered she likes crab. We are having crab cakes and shrimp. At least her father and I are. Not sure if she will be home. Even when I was younger I never much like New Years. So seafood and movies.

Mom. maybe you could take some prepared dishes with you.. or take the fixins and do them at your MILs house. I bet she would not mind a bit.

I am in BIG trouble now. Just went down to the freezer. Apparently DH brought home 20 pounds of grated cheese.. for the quiche.. Also five more turkeys, four shank hams.. and a dozen large pies. Add that to that l0 pound cheesecake he brought home yesterday.. and omg I don't even know what else. Beats the time he brought home three huge boxes of bananas though.. I had to give them out ..
CRAP I am never going to get enough freezer space for the good food I like .. such as pizza..
Sign me.. dying for seafood..

I bought a reduced pork tenderloin right after Thanksgiving and I'm going to just quick roast that, and some leftover sweet potatoes, and peas from our freezer, and I've got a can of pumpkin and evap milk in the pantry to make a pie, and some cranberry sauce from a recipe from the boards just recently. Next year could be something else.

I've changed our meals up from what was traditional from both our familes, and we have smaller, simpler holidays, but we love them all the more.
