What's cooking for Christmas.
Job #1. Every year we have a company clam bake. With the left overs I make stuffed clams. (aka Clams Casino). I freeze them. For our shop Christmas party I put them in the microwave. They go great with beer while we play poker.
Job #2. No matter what the weather I'll be out on the deck deep frying a turkey. I'm probably the only idiot in the State of Vermont standing out in the cold cooking a turkey on Christmas morning.
Job #3. On New Year's Eve we have another shop party. Every year I make my world fameous (and parts of Bennington) chili dogs. I get good dogs made by MacKensie and of course we only have New England hot dog rolls.
Job #4. New Years DAY we have a family reunion at our house. I'm doing a spiral ham. Also I make an dynomite antipasta salad that people seem to like.
Mary Lou does every thing else. Twice baked potatoes, Harvard beets and green bean caserol.
Standing rib roast Christmas eve and a ham Christmas day.
New Years will be a pork roast with dumplings and sour kraut.
Now the freaks are on television, the freaks are in the movies. And its no longer the sideshow, its the whole show. The colorful circus and the clowns and the elephants, for all intents and purposes, are gone, and were dealing only with the freaks. - Jonathan Winters
My kingdom for a Christmas dinner with some sour beef and dumplings and saurkraut cooked with pork. Never thought there could be food that would gag a Cajun but I found at least two...
(The wise men of modern thought) adore a god made of putty or of wax - plastic, effeminate, molluscous, with no masculine faculty about him, and no quality that entitles him to the respect of just and honest men, for a being who cannot be angry at wrongdoing is destitute of one of the essential virtues, and a moral Ruler who is not angry with the wicked, and who refuses to punish crime, is not divine. ---Spurgeon
Jerry I'll be the cook this year...all week I have made candies to feed whoever stops by for a visit. Almond Bark, Almond Brittle, Almond Joys, Anise candy, Snikerdoodles, Sugar cookies, Oatmeal Walnut cookies,toasted coconut banana bread & pumpkin spice bread.
Christmas eve Rick likes his favorite stew of oysters & I'll have my crab cakes with potato pancakes with all kinds of dips & veggies to munch on ...Hope You & the family have a wonderful Christmas & see y'all next year by the beach !
You don't have to ASK
What I'm Against...
If you know what
Turkey with Cornbread Dressing,mashed potatoes, and turnip greens.
Ila, what the freak is a Snikerdoole? Ihave even seen reference to them on the post office commercials. but they aren't popular around here. I never ate a Snikerdoole.l

The feast is usually enough food for twice the number of folks attending... so we all end up doing the holiday thing... eating too much.
Dinner is usually around 4-ish on Christmas day... so I always go for at least a mile walk afterwards to start the digestive process... AND... Always plan some work the next day to regain my shape...

The ol' lady pulled a 6# Prime out of the oven. It was really good.
The views and opinions posted here are my own. They do not reflect the corporate policies of my employer and will most likely get me fired at some point.
6 lb. roast chicken, candied yams all the other stuff that goes with it. All the family lives out of state. Just Ma and I and the cat. Gonna have a lot of leftovers too.
One way to outthink people is to make them think you think. They'll think you're not really thinking what you're trying to get them to think you think...........
Best food around...

Your right. Made cream of mushroom soup and turkey salad sandwhiches for lunch yesterday. Tonight the War Dept. is making her Sheppard's Pie with what remains of Christmas dinner.
