Will probably roast some brussels sprouts ahead of time since the oven will be full of bread and manicotti. Will serve that cold with a fish sauce based vinaigrette. All faves of my son who doesn't really like sweets, so I won't bother with dessert.
    I want to try making Ricotta too. I saw a show demonstration and it looked pretty easy.

    It's just me so I'll make shrimp, pasta and whatever veggie I can find.

    16 for dinner. Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cream corn, green beans,
    a small pork roast, pasta, rolls, pie, cannolis, ice cream, cookies. Whew, no, I am not cooking all of
    it, everyone is bringing something.

    Turkey roll, cornbread dressing, Louisiana fresh yams a corn and green bean casserole to die for------with that being said guess I need to give the recipe.

    Corn & Green Bean Casserole

    1 can shoe peg Corn
    1 can French style green beans
    1 can cream of celery soup
    1 can sliced water chestnuts
    1/2 cup sour cream
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    1/2 cup chopped almonds (optional)
    1/2 cup cheddar cheese
    Salt & pepper to taste
    1 stack Ritz Crackers
    1 stick butter


    Mix all ingredient except ritz and butter and pour into casserole dish.
    Crush ritz crackers, melt butter and mix with crackers. Spread over the top of the casserole and bake at 350 till heated bubbling and toaste on top. (About 30 to 45 minutes)

    I usually prepare everything, pour into casserole and cover with Saran Wrap the day before the holiday and prepare the ritz/butter topping just before I need to put into the oven (less prep on the day).

    My son is home for the first time in about 3 years and said he'd like to have ham, so ham it is. I ordered a small spiral ham and will pick it up later in the week. Just need a few sides to go with it but it will be a simple dinner. Only 3 of us for Christmas.

    The same! We always have a recipe from Taste of Home called "Must Have Salad". It is so good! Mashed potatoes and a green bean casserole my sister makes that uses fresh green beans, almonds, blue cheese and heavy cream (very healthy ) topped with bread crumbs. I think we will also have cheesecake and a new pie DD found at Aldis - Cookie Butter Creme.

    My sister started the prime rib Christmas tradition about six years ago and everyone kind of expects it now.

    I will be making a traditional meal at Phil and Jodi's this year, turkey, potatoes, vegetable, stuffing and gravy. I will also be making some buns, not sure about dessert though. I didn't make any that's for sure.

    New Year's is when we have the Seafood Fest, lobster, scallops, shrimp, maybe some crab, and steaks on the barbie.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

    It will just be DH, youngest DD and myself for Christmas Day. I usually make biscuits and sausage gravy for breakfast, but DH can't have it anymore and youngest DD isn't fond of it. So, I don't see the need to make B&G just for me.

    I'll probably cook a turkey breast in the crockpot, make green bean casserole (Halona's favorite), rolls and chips. It will be a solemn Christmas dinner, but at least observed. I still need to do Christmas shopping for Halona (her 16th birthday is tomorrow); DH and I are omitting gifts this year for each other. The move has been costly moving from one state to another in the recent week.
