A veggie platter
Deviled eggs
Ham. My husband bought a whole ham.
Cardomomed sweet potato casserole
Mashed potatoes
Green bean casserole

Also, leftover cheese balls and crackers, fudge, cookies, and Watergate salad- if any are left from Xmas Eve.

My dinner on the 25th is just gonna be a simple half leg of lamb. And im gonna slice the rest up and put in tubs with a covering of mint sauce and bung in the freezer.

I will probably boil a gammon as well. But most of it will be frozen.

You can’t call it that! Doesn’t work. You need to call it piecaken. Then for dessert instead of saying RELEASE THE KRAKEN it’s RELEASE THE PIECAKEN!

What is a Hawaiian roll? You mugged one of the Obamas?

That’s exactly what we are doing, although I’m having vegan Wellington and there will be bacon wrapped stuffing balls too

Awhh, I hope you get some quality company Christmas day too. We’ve got a friend coming by so thankfully will be sharing our meal too. Do you like a curry? I’m going to be reserving some of the lamb for a passanda type dish.

I don’t think we’re really having any Christmas dinner or meal on the 25th…

But on the 26th if my brothers family and my sisters family come over, we’re gonna do a burger bar type thing… cheeseburgers with a bunch of different topping choices. Plus there will be appetizers or sides that my sister will be providing.

(We will see if everyone comes though cause it’s supposed to start snowing here the 25th😬)

Sounds pretty close to what I’m making tomorrow. I’m putting a chuck roast in the sous vide today at 4 pm and will pull it out tomorrow at 4 pm. It will have the texture of prime rib, but still be medium rare. Also having mashed taters, sous vide carrots, and mixed roasted cauliflower and peppers. I’ll probably make some buns tonight.

Man that sounds amazing. Sous vide will be next level! I’ve always wanted to get/try one.

On our day after xmas party, I’m sure my sister will have a charcuterie board, and some other snacks or appetizers. For dinner, we’re going to have lasagna (I don’t know what sides/veggies.) And I’m baking the cookies for dessert.

All I’m having is a turkey sandwich TV dinner, as I’m not any good at cooking stuff.

My piecaken is in the oven. It’s not going to be the prettiest as the pie came apart while I was putting it inside the springform pan, but… It’s a success any time the first attempt at a recipe is edible.

Hope this is an epic win and not an epic fail.
