Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinner?

What do you make for Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinner?

We have a big meal and we usually have the same things. This year I will have a brand new baby and I want to plan my meal now.

  • Thanksgiving is at our house every year. Turkey, stuffing, mash potatoes, green beans, carrots, buns, cranberry sauce and desert( I change that up every year but will have a pumpkin pie)

    Christmas is usually at my hubby's Aunts place. They always have ham and then the rest is different. They draw names and see how brings what that year. but the last couple of years due to bad weather we have had it at home. I made BBQ meatballs with rice one year, lasagna one year and last was taco's(per request of our oldest) This year we are having it at home again and not sure yet. I should figure that out soon.

  • Thanksgiving we do the traditional turkey with lots of vegetables, rolls and several different desserts (mostly pies) Christmas is more unconventional we have a huge breakfast w/ bacon, sausage, hashbrowns, eggs, coffe cake, eggnog and english muffins sometimes pancakes as well. Then for dinner we have finger foods i.e...bagel bites, veggie tray, pickles, cheese and crackers

  • I brine a turkey for thanksgiving, serve some traditional sides and try something new out. Christmas is usually lasagna or we order Chinese food. It's an odd tradition I know.
