What to Cook on Christmas?
This used to be a Christmas staple - Oyster Stew. I think I'll get a big pot out and get it ready for the day! Oyster Stew and champagne in front of the Christmas tree is always great at the end of the day.
Christmas Day dinner will probably be ham, standing rib roast, potato salad and cranberry frozen whip cream salad, and an antipasto tray. And more crunchy bread and rolls. Maybe a large, cold brocolli salad from the deli.
Looking for a menu for a keep it simple for famly Christmas eve supper. Maybe whole grain crunchy bread, oyster stew, and slices of roast beef and horseradish & brown mustard, left overs from night before, potato salad and a fabulous cake. I would like to go out and eat on Christmas day, but I would feel guilty being served by people who probably would love to be home with their families and friends.
Maybe mufalettas on Christmas day as well with leftover ham, spread thick with olive salad, provologne and other cheeses.
What are your Christmas food traditions?
