Life is too stressful to spend all day on Christmas in the kitchen anymore. We now do finger foods all day. What do you do?

Anything, but traditional! This year we're doing steak and crab legs. Last year we had lasagne.

I like your finger foods idea!

We're having tacos. LOL 

We just do a typical dinner on Christmas. The only time we do something really elaborate is Thanksgiving. And even then, our idea of elaborate is way different than most people.

I made a traditional dinner.  A beef roast and a glazed ham.

Pizza! I'm sick of being the one missing out on 2 seconds of relaxation and the enjoyment of watching the kids play just so I can spend all day in the kitchen mashing potatoes and basting a turkey.

Roast in the crockpot. Spend the day in pajamas and play games.

We had ham and scalloped potatoes....Nothing special.  It's just us and there was no point in making a huge meal.
