    I'm gonna stick with the classics:

    PB & J
    Single Barrel Bourbon

    It's just me so I don't need a big spread.
     
  2. We just got back from my wife's side, and my father in law made up some ocean scallops and his unbelievable mind-blowing crab cakes for lunch...mother of god. We are a huge seafood family so this was bliss and unlike any Christmas spread I've had before. No need for dinner tonight.

    We are fascinated by the cold/snowy christmas. Every year we say next year lets go somewhere for a cold weather christmas. One day....... Its hot here today, and will be hotter tomorrow.
    I had to google what 32degrees f is. Its 0 celsius. Ok, thats cold. We get 35 degrees on xmas day. Thats 95 F apparently. Too warm for me.

    It's just my wife and I this year, as she has to work both today and Monday and our families are hundreds of miles away. So we decided to go nontraditional: Salad, and lasagne with (some spicy) sausage. A beer for me and a hard cider for her. Not completely sure about dessert, but if nothing else, we have four kinds of cookie dough that she made up last week.:D

    Christmas Eve is our time with Family here in GA...We've spent Christmas Eve with our son and his girls for the last 3 or 4 years...then they pack up the sleigh and head off to our daughter in law's parents for Christmas dinner.
    We're going seafood this year!
    They'll get the turkey an dressing tomorrow...tonight it's shrimp, scallops, oysters, and baked talapia!
    We've made a killer potato salad, broccoli salad, and these pieces of celery stuffed with cream cheese that holds the olives and sweet peppers in place...one of my wife's family's Christmas traditions.

    Christmas morning, we feast on Pork Pie...another Canadian/ New England tradition.
    We weren't here for Thanksgiving this year...and that kind of lends a l'il extra measure of Profound to the time spent together.

    Next year the Whole clan will gather up...
    We're calling this year 'The calm before the storm'!

    Happy Holiday-Of-Your-Choice to you all!

    (We're planning our Chrismukkah
    menu for Monday night as we speak!)

    Christmas is always interesting for me, since my wife is Jewish. Christmas Eve was also the first day of Chanukah, so there went the "seven fishes" thing, since we always had lobster as part of it. We had latkes with Caviar and sour cream or home made apple sauce, weiner schnitzel, and some other goodies, including lots of home made desserts.

    Christmas Day we had the traditional Jewish Christmas feast - take out Chinese.

    New Years is our big feast. We visit with our former secretary, who is also a great friend. She makes a southern feast, including a huge roast chicken or turkey, collard and other greens, black eyed peas, whipped potatoes, and my wife makes a huge prime rib. The husbands get to sit back and enjoy the good natured competition as to who is the better chef.

    we had a wonderful holiday, but not our usual as my great-cook spouse is hampered by pre-holiday surgery, but my real reason for posting: what wonderful/appetizing dishes you folks have served up! very impressive!

    and i think some of you are gourmets, to say the least! hope you all have a happy new year!

    saltydude , i hope the doritos worked out for you! :thumbsup:
