    I always cook for at least 4 on Christmas Eve, and it’s usually baked ham! It’s very nice with a honey and orange glaze.

    We are having Christmas Eve Dinner with my in-laws. Traditional Turkey, ham (Honey-Baked), stuffing, green beans, carrot souffle, Mac and cheese, deviled eggs, creamed corn, potato souffle and cranberry salad.

    We take on the job of smoking the turkey breast. We have two this year and my mother-in-law found some the size of a regular turkey. I make a brown sugar/cranberry jelly rub and pt them on the smoker with a pan of cranberry juice in place of water in the water pan. They come out moist and tasty.

    Everyone else brings sides. My mother-in-law does the cranberry salad and green beans. I do the carrot souffle, deviled eggs and macaroni and cheese. The carrot souffle is my favorite. Sweet like sweet potato souffle and you will never know you are eating carrots. I use Splenda in place of all the sugar to make it more low cal.

    Carrot Soufflé

    1 1/2 pounds carrots, sliced
    1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, room temperature
    1/4 cup small dinner mints (heaping)
    3 eggs
    1/4 cup plus 1 heaping tablespoon all-purpose flour
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 1 1/2-quart soufflé dish; set aside. Cook carrots in boiling water for 15 minutes or until tender; drain. In a food processor, combine the carrots, butter, dinner mints, eggs, flour, baking powder, sugar and cinnamon and process until smooth, stopping once to scrape down the sides. Spoon into prepared dish. Bake for 1-1 1/4 hours or until just set and lightly browned. Serve immediately.

    My sister in-law always gets a Honey Baked Ham. Mt other one and her daughters always bring the other sides. Sometimes they make it there without a catastrophe and sometimes not.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours!

    Christmas Day it will be the three of us me with my husband and son (15). We are making a large pot of Mexican Cheese Dip and I will have had about 50 wings marinating for the smoker. Other than that we will have leftovers from the night before.

    After the hussle and bussle of it all we just lat back and relax Christmas Day.

    I like to have a nice sit down dinner with my friends (8). They have fondue pots, and I’m fortunate enough to have 2. It works out very well. I buy 2 pks of Swiss Cheese fondue for 1 pot and cut a crusty loaf in chunks. It’s o.k. if the bread dries out a bit because the chees adheres better. I also make a big salad and throw 12 potatoes in the oven with aluminum foil on them.
    Next I use peanut oil for the cubes of beef bourguinnone fondue.
    Then up cut up 3 chicken breasts in small cubes, and open the shrimps.
    I love garlic butter to dip everything in and cocktail sauce for my shrimps. I also mix mayo with ketchup for another sauce, HP sauce, and Heinz 57 , and I mix dijon mustard and mayo which I find goes well with chicken.
    For dessert I make a lemon merangue pie, and a chocolate cake.
    We sit around cooking and talking for hours and it’s great fun and truly relaxing. Then I make my Turkey dinner the next day for my family. I hope you have a Merry X-mas and a Happy New Year, and everything is well with you.

    For Christmas Eve, we’re going to my relatives’ house, it’s going to be a casual appetizer thing. There will probably be about 13-15 people there. I’m thinking of taking my creamy Swedish meatballs in a crockpot.

    Christmas Day will be just the 2 of us. We’ll be making a beer-glazed ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes, bacon gravy, and broccoli with hollandaise. Some of that could change though.

    This yr I am shying away from the usual traditonal turkey dinner,and doing my Christmas dinner Italian style.

    The main course will be a four cheese lasagna,with many side dishes to accompy it,
    and a cherry cheesecake for dessert.
