We typically do Christmas Eve at DH’s grandparents, and Christmas morning/breakfast at his parents.  I think this year, since it is our first married Christmas, I might cook something that night just for the two of us! I am not sure what to make. We both love food and I cook a lot of variety at home, so nothing is very “special.” Hmmm…..

My family doesn’t do Christmas dinner. My mom always makes a good breakfast and then we just snack all day. 

Breakfast menu: 

breakfast bake (sausage/egg/cheese casserole thing)

hanky pankies (sausage/cheese on broiled mini pumpernickle toast)

orange rolls

champagne cocktails with pear nectar and pom juice


Then usually my mom will just have stuff for sandwiches, veggies, etc and we just snack whenever throughout the day.

I am having a Christmas party next week where we will be having appies and lots of baking. 

For xmas day, we go to my family’s house for Christmas dinner which is a very traditional English Christmas dinner. In the morning, Fiance and I make pancakes, sausage and bacon.

We’re starting with a salad then I’m cooking ham with a brown sugar glaze, green beans, and potatoes. For desert, I’m making red velvet cheesecake.  It’s just me and my SO this year, so I’m trying not to do too much.

We had our first Christmas with just the two of us last year, and we made Shepherd’s Pie together, and decided that would be our tradition.  This year we are hosting both of our moms and his sister at our new apartment, and trying to decide what side dishes to pair with Shepherd’s Pie πŸ™‚

At my BIL’s house we have steak (usually prime rib, sometimes flank) and potatoes on Christmas Eve. For Christmas day, we do a Thanksgiving dinner redux…turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, pie, rolls, etc.

Normally my mom makes ham, scalloped potatoes, broccoli casserole, deviled eggs, and a bunch of snacks! But I won’t be getting to see my mom this year so we are going to my SO parents. They make breakfast. We are going to have homemade donuts, eggs, sausage, bacon, and fruit.

My parents invited us over for both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day so they’ll be doing most of the cooking. I’ll probably bring some delicious Mac’n’Cheese and some Ranch and Pickle Devilled eggs for Christmas Eve dinner. Mmm, delicious.

African chicken curry and rice. πŸ˜€ We do the ham and all that kind of stuff for Thanksgivng so we have our other favorite meal. My grandparents were teachers/missionaries in Liberia, West Africa for almost 10 years when my mom was younger and it is a meal they brought back with them that we all love. But it has to have the right toppings, one must have boiled eggs, peanuts, and bananas on top then cover with curry sauce.
