How about Cornish game hens?  They are small enough for two (my mom usually makes one for each guest), and you could make appropriate sized sides of your liking.  And once you eat all of the meat from the hens they make excellent stock for cooking other things (like dumplings!) Merry Christmas!

@Miss Rosie: We’re doing those for Christmas! I always have them at Thanksgiving but since we went to his relatives for Thanksgiving, we’re staying home Christmas Eve and cooking them! I have an amazing recipe that my mom makes with pinapple rice inside. yum!

My family always makes a ham or beef roast for Christmas dinner, but we also have a tradition of making a lasagne for Christmas Eve dinner. It’s so that we can hurry up and eat before heading out to the Christmas Eve church service. That lasagne has been there every year as far back as I can remember!

We do seafood for Christmas Eve.  Every year its something different, but always delicious.  Its also easy to do for two!

You could also do steaks and make them a little fancier by adding crabmeat on top.  So good!

We always do a ham for Thanksgiving.  Most grocery stores sell those little 2 pound ham cuts that only take like 30 minutes to cook. 

Also, this yam recipe is sooooooooo good.  We make it for every holiday (and like twice a month additionally :).  It’s nice because we can make up the “stuffing” ahead of time, and then we only bake the number of yams we want (usually 2 or 4 at a time).

My mom started doing lasagna and crab legs awhile back and I would have to cook the lasagna for her. I thought that was weird too but thought she just liked giving me a role, since I’m the only one who makes that homemade.  For the past years while not living near my mom, I like to do turkey and stuffing. At other Christmas visits,  aunty always does a brunch and DH’s mom does ham.
