Seafood. I'm having other stuff too but that's the main course and I'm having my dinner on Christmas Eve. I'm feeling pretty calm about it right now but at the end of the day I may be a lunatic after I've spent the day worrying things won't be perfect. If I don't think, I will be juuuuust fine.

We're having Christmas dinner on Christmas Day with my oldest brother and his family and friends. I hope they serve pig in the blanket and bacon wrapped scallops appetizers like every other year.

Celebrating Christmas the week before with my second oldest brother and his family at Mr. Fuji's. I love Hibachi.

Celebrating Christmas Eve playing pool and poker with friends while I stuff my face with rum balls.

RE: Christmas food

Do you like eggnog? I'm the only one at home that likes it so I buy it for Christmas, have a glass of it and end up throwing the rest out because I can only drink so much of it and it goes bad. I bought the one made with almond milk today and it's actually pretty good. It's not as thick and sweet as regular eggnog.

I love eggnog but like you, I'm the only one who drinks it and it's a special occasion drink only. It's full of fat & calories.

RE: Christmas food

No I've never thought of that, but I think it would taste good to add it to the egg mixture.

Mmmm French toast, another one of those special occasion things. I've never made it with eggnog but I have made it with raisin bread. Nom Nom Nom

I also love eggnog, but I am the only one who drinks it. Haven't bought it in years. I also liked this sample of eggnog liqueur Kringle Kreme I tried a few months ago. Seems like it would be less fattening/have less calories than regular eggnog and get you drunk faster.

What about beef wellington? Someone I know is making that. It's not my scene but it doesn't preclude me from thinking it looks beautiful and carnivores probably love something like that.

RE: Christmas food

Classic beef wellington is coated with liver pate and no one likes liver here except my husband and I don't care what he likes. I suppose I could do it with a mushroom pate, but then I have to be really careful that the puff pastry doesn't get soggy and that the meat is cooked a perfectly medium rare. Otherwise you'll fuck up a whole tenderloin. I don't know, it's a bit of work.

RE: Christmas food



How about prime rib? I have lots of ideas, I wish I had someone to follow through on them.

Yeah I was thinking prime rib, but seafood sounds good too. Maybe both.

RE: Christmas food

Get that whipped cream before it sells out. Or becomes the next e-bay sensation.

Just when you thought 2016 couldn’t get any worse, terrible news emerges from the Reddi-wip factory. “A whipped cream shortage is looming, just in time for peak holiday pie,” warns the Washington Post. “The Nation Is Facing a Dire Whipped-Cream Shortage During Prime Dessert Season,” says Time. “Whipped Cream Shortage Could Leave Your Holiday Pies Bare,” declares a CBS affiliate in Miami that apparently employs a crack team of headline-writers.
