    My personal preference is prime rib. You never get prime rib as good out as you do at home. However, if it’s just usually the two of you, a turkey feeds lots of people so not something you’re going to make for a normal meal.

    I voted prime rib, you can never go wrong with that, and there are recipes out there that are super super easy and fool proof! But I’ll tell you what we make on Christmas… a good home made Lasagna!!!!!!! (with home made sauce that sits on the stove all day)

    Mmmm, pizza…

    But if you do turkey well and like it, I’d go with turkey!

    Ok if I read this right…

    Christmas Day you are elsewhere (Turkey & Ham)

    Boxing Day you are hosting… Fiancé, Dad, Stepmom & Brother

    Seeing as everyone has probably had Turkey the day before… and you like to cook

    I’d opt for the Prime Rib or the Ham
    (the latter with Scalloped Potatoes yum)

    OR you could go the entirely British route… and try your hand at Beef Wellington, and often seen dish for Christmas or Boxing Day.

    I voted pizza. And I meant it. I don’t like turkey or ham. And Prime Rib sounded a bit intimidating. So I’d do a nice, homemade pizza with really good, fresh ingredients that everyone can choose from!

    ETA: I’m having 18 over for dinner tomorrow (we’re doing Christmas early) and I’m making baked chicken. Why? Because it’s yummy and I can make it in large volume easily. My dad wanted a turkey. I told him if he wanted a turkey, he was welcome to make one. But if I was making the meat, it would be baked chicken. He said chicken sounded just fine.

    @MsGinkgo:  ugh boys…. how about one of your #1 go to nice meals? Like I have a few meals that I’ve cooked multiple times that are OUTSTANDING and that I’m super comfortable with. Examples for me are lasagna, chicken marsala, butternut squash and sausage pasta, and roast chicken.
