The Married Guy Cook

Jeff seems to have run out of topics, so perhaps I’ll give it a try…

Christmas dinner: Is it Thanksgiving revisited, or something completely different?  What are your traditions, or lack thereof?

  1. We always have roast beef, Yorkshire pudding, some kind of potato dish, green beans or carrots.

  2. My mother always made duck.  Yuck.  I personally prefer lasagna, mainly for the reason it is less dishes than “traditional” fare.  Plus, it is easier to make and less time consuming, so more time can be spent actually enjoying the holidays.

  3. Before my mother-in-law passed away, Christmas Eve had to be the exact Polish feast her mother used to serve, with twelve dishes for four people. Now it’s catch as catch can. We’re having some of the extended family over on the 23rd, and the main dish will be chicken cordon bleu.

  4. Well, I know it’s a cliché, however our Christmas tradition usually includes a movie and Chinese food. 

    But Rosh Hashanah, in the fall, is a major feast with a menu much like Thanksgiving.  Usually a soup, a brisket and either chicken or a turkey plus varied sides.

  5. We don’t have a tradition. This year it will be Ham - the rest of the ham from Thanksgiving. Sometimes we’ll have stroganoff and one year I think we had frozen pizza.
