  • We have honey baked turkey breast slices with gravy and green bean casserole, a potato dish (variety of them) and at least three other vegetables dishes, since I and a few others do not eat meat.

  • Oh my, that's too much typing! When money allows, we do a traditional Swedish smorgasbord.

  • I love Thanksgiving dinner!! I usually make roasted turkey with sausage stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, corn pudding, pearl onions in cream sauce, cranberry sauce (fresh and canned) and the little soft dinner rolls. YUM. Dessert is generally just apple and pumpkin pie and my grandma's waffle recipe.

    Christmas doesn't have a set menu, depends on how many people I'm having and it varies each year, but generally, I like to do a bunch of appetizers on x-mas eve and a ham or roast beef or prime rib on x-mas day, with a variety of sides.

  • we usually do turkey, stuffing with sausage, apples and hazelnuts, mashed potatoes, green beans with almonds and dinner rolls. we usually have nuts, cheeses, crackers and a relish tray while waiting for dinner. we usually have cookies and scotcharoos too. dessert is usually apple pie.
    Christmas is either a ham or a roast. we usually have a huge Christmas breakfast too.
    Christmas eve is usually jambalaya.
