Christmas menu

I its my first attempt at cooking our family's Christmas dinner. I don't like many sides so I don't really pay attention to what there usually is for choices. Lol. I'm making ham and cheesey potatoes. What else?

Re: Christmas menu

We usually do rolls of some sort. That is the one thing all my kids will eat.

Re: Christmas menu

Yep green beans and a salad. Fruit salad too- I usually have it as part of the meal rather than part of dessert. And some kind of roll. We've started adding a raw veggie tray because all the kids that eat with us prefer the veggie tray to cooked veggies (small raw sweet peppers, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, baby carrots, small cuts of broccoli florets and black olives- I put celery on too but usually only the adults eat those).

Re: Christmas menu

Is it just you guys? I'm asking because people do love their sides.

I think people neglect the veggies. You need some sort of veggie. I like having a salad too.

I do a Christmas Eve feast and usually some casserole breakfast type thing for Christmas morning because of all the cooking the previous day. Then everyone has leftovers all day because there is always so much food left.

Re: Christmas menu

Depending on how many people... baking powder biscuits made from yogurt, stuffing that includes apples and celery and sausage, cranberry something (tart, not sweet), homemade oj jello with mandarin oranges, lime jello from the package, mashed potatoes with gravy. We don't have much for veggies at the meal itself, but all afternoon we have a raw veggie tray out with all sorts of fresh veggies plus pickles and olives, that's all you're allowed to snack on while all the good cooking smells are in the house so it gets pretty well devoured.

This year we will have 13-15 people & our menu is:
Ham, dressing, sweet potato casserole, corn, green beans, rolls & prob cookies & brownies for dessert. I always set out veggies & trail mix & things to munch on.

Re: Christmas menu

When we're home just the 5 of us, we do ham, mashed potatoes & gravy, green beans, stuffing, rolls, mac & cheese, and corn plus dessert (usually just cookies). We end up with a lot of leftovers, but doing that much makes it to where there's a few things everyone loves.
