Come On Christmas Dinner!


Cabin Fever

Recommended Posts

For the past week, I've had a 13lb prime rib roast staring me in the face every time I open the refrigerator... which is sadly quite often! :rolleyes:  Can't wait to sink my teeth into it! Since we have the typical turkey and ham for Thanksgiving, we make prime rib the star of the show for Christmas dinner!

What do you have for the main course?

That looks so good Bob!!!

We do Italian, with lasagna from my wifes special recipe. Sooooo good!

OMG, that sounds delish!! We used to go to my in-laws for Christmas dinner and they made homemade raviolis with fresh sauce and it was AMAZING! That's what everyone looked forward to all year long! My mother-in-law's lasagna is killer too! Actually, everything she makes is delish!! :cool:

Italian Christmas Eve here.. We started hosting when we bought our home in 2016. We start with cold antipasto (assorted meats, cheeses, olives, etc) and ice cold shrimp with cocktail sauce.

The main deep dish is Linguine with mussels, calamari, clams, shrimp, etc. in red sauce.

Then it's Bacon wrapped scallops, fresh fried flounder, fried calamari, penne vodka, fresh salad, lots of Italian bread, And we're adding on live fresh lobsters this year. One and a quarter pound per person. I am steaming them Christmas Eve before we all eat.... Fresh!!!

Homemade sugar and rainbow cookies, pastries and desserts from the local bakery that people are bringing, asstd nuts. And of course beer, wine, and cocktails galore lol. My wife usually makes a holiday punch for the adults and one for the kids. 

And me and the wife always take at least a few minutes to stand in a corner or sit back with a drink and just soak in everybody enjoying our insane family Christmas. 

Palma non sine pulvere

Prime Rib and Turkey . I have two Ronco Rotisseries . 10 lb prime Rib in one and a 12-14 lb Turkey in the other. Those " Set It And Forget It " rotisseries cook to perfection every time . Turkey at 12 min a lb and Prime Rib at 15 min a lb .

Scallops wrapped in bacon , shrimp cocktail , lobster tails with butter ,  stuffed mushrooms , veggie dip platter , chips with dip,  spinach pie , fresh salad , green bean  casserole , butternut squash . And last but not least , homemade apple and banana cream pies with ice cream and homemade cookies  !

We do nearly the same thing. Wife's family is right off the boat Sicilian. The only thing I'd add to what you listed is that we have lasagna instead of the linguine and panettone.

Stone crab, raw oysters, oysters au graten, shrimp and scallop scampi and baked clams on Christmas Eve, followed by my wife's lasagna and a Panettone for dessert. 

Christmas day will be more of the same shellfish and antipasto during the day. Dinner will be a rib roast and lobster tails with twice cooked cream cheese mashed potatoes  and creamed spinach. Dessert will be homemade cookies, brownies, and assorted mini Italian pastries.

Forgot to mention some patio time with a nice La Flor Dominicana a couple of drams of Irish.

Merry Christmas
