Thanks for the video @aubie My one indulgence every year is a small prime rib for myself and I usually cut a few steaks off it and freeze first before cooking. I actually cut off a very thin piece to have with eggs and hash browns this morning, it was AWESOME! I can't wait to try your recipe. Didn't know about the room temperature thing.

@boots @COWCHICK77 and @aubie : I am not sure how helpful I can be on them because it is my cousins who help her to cook them. They are delicious though. Pork ribs with stuffing between them. They are cut in twos, so on the bottom are two ribs and on the top are two ribs. Thanksgiving type stuffing between. I have helped her with stuffing before, and she does it the real way and not the Box way.

Not sure exactly what we are having yet, I do know there will be lots of wine though. LOL.
OMG I love mashed potatoes. You guys are making me hungry!

Usually my parents do a nice Christmas breakfast. We are going there for that and then later on going to my BF's family and having dinner. Not sure exactly what is on the menu though. Last year we had ham & prime rib. It was pretty good.

Of course, cookies, and snacks. Plenty of hors d’oeuvres.

Christmas Eve, we are going to his aunt's house & having some drinks/food, not sure what we will have but I know it'll be good!

Ride more, worry less.

We have a pretty typical British Christmas lunch - turkey, stuffing, mashed and roast potatoes, cranberry sauce, roast chestnuts and veggies. I have to be really strict about portion size control though because we're weight watching all winter.
We have Christmas pudding, which I don't think is a US thing.
In the late afternoon/early evening we have 'help yourself' snacks and Christmas cake (another mostly UK thing) which my DH always makes.
The recipe is fairly standard - this is Mary Berry's which is much the same as ours

If we host Christmas, we do a simple, easy meal and just relax, open gifts if we share them, and watch Christmas movies. We just had a big meal at Thanksgiving, so it's nice to have a simple meal at Christmas, especially if it's just our usual small group of parents and a friend or two. My mom is the music director at her church, so with 12 Masses between Sunday, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day, I don't want her to have to worry about cooking! This year I'm trying to decide between Cheeseburger Soup and fresh bread, Tuscan Chicken Pasta, or French Dips and broccoli salad. We'll see what's available when I get time to brave the grocery store tomorrow and go from there!! Last year we had a rich beef stew. The year before a ham with potato casserole and a vegetable. Nothing too fancy or time-consuming.

We set out a table with munchies like party mix, cookies, fudge, almond cake, etc. too. I'm all about simple, hearty, and easy!


ETA: my assistant and I were visiting the other night and decided one of these years we would like to host a 'traditional Victorian-type Christmas meal' with roast goose, potatoes and trimmings, Christmas pudding, roasted chestnuts, etc. We shall see if that comes to pass or not! It sounds like it would be a fun thing to do with a group of friends.

One year my mom made the big beef standing Crown Roast. It.was.awesome. She said it wasn't worth the effort, but it sure looked neat on the table and tasted divine!

Christmas Day is a day of big rest. Christmas Eve is an enormous church thing. Since I sing in the choir, I'll be pretty bushed on Christmas Day. I'll have a (very) few immediate family over for a simple supper of baked ham (our town Polish smokehouse makes a fine ham), potato pancakes, and home made applesauce with local Empire apples. That's it. The ham cooks itself, I'll make the applesauce ahead, and my husband will make the pancakes. No worries.

This year I made lots of cookies, which I never ordinarily do at all, because no one in my family likes cookies particularly, including myself. I gave them all away to neighbors and friends. It was fun.
