@mayflowerbride13: I considered that but I’m afraid to experiment so close to Christmas lol.
Also, do you have a Bass Pro Shops around you? They have tons of information regarding turkey fryers. My Fiance actually has an infrared fryer and it’s amazing! His brother has a standard oil fryer and he’s actually going to be doing the turkey, but we normally use the infrared one because it’s healthier (since there’s no oil) and you don’t have to constantly watch it. (my dad and his brothers actually caught the yard on fire once haha)

It’s normally 40c (104f) degrees on Christmas where I am from so we traditionally have cold seafood like crayfish, prawns, smoked salmon for Christmas lunch while drinking beer and champagne and swimming in the pool!

We do our big meal on Christmas Eve as it is also my Dad’s birthday. We have pasta and red sauce. The noodles are homemade and hand rolled. My parents, brother, SIL, Fiance and Pop-Pop all get together and have various jobs for the noddle rolling. Mom is the runner and SIL straightens them as they dry. Dad mixes the do and cuts them into strands to be rolled. My brother, Pop-Pop and I roll. Fiance sometimes rolls and sometimes takes my Dad’s car out for his free birthday car wash. We have meatballs, hot sausage and spare ribs with the meal.
On Christmas day we have a big breakfast, bacon, sausuage, scrapple and eggs. I usually have mine as a sandwich. Yum. Then lunch/dinner is buffett style at my aunts with extended family. Sort of pot-luck.
Noodle rolling pics for your viewing pleasure (taken the day I got engaged last year, I didn’t have a clue at this point – haha).

We don’t really do anything in particular. We do tend to have great great grandma’s Lasagna on Christmas eve. Christmas Day normally alternates between Prime Rib/standing rib roast and ham depending on our mood that year. We don’t really do Christmas Turkey b/c we just had it less than a month ago and there are so many other DELICIOUS big meals to have/try.
This year it’s just Darling Husband and I, I’m going to try a ham crockpt recipe. scalloped potatoes, broccoli, and maybe macncheese

My families traditional meal is:
green bean casserole
And then some type of pie
I think thats all….sometimes my parents will make a turkey instead of a ham, but usually on Christmas (or whatever day we all get together for Christmas) its a ham.

We always have fresh ham for Christmas. That’s basically a ham with no preservation, smoking, curing, etc. Along with that is rolls, green beans, mac n cheese, etc. We also normally have dips, cheese, and a few other snacks. We really like to eat. 🙂
