What Will Be Your Christmas Dinner?

Mon Dec 05, 2011 4:33 am

Hi all,

what will be your christmas dinner this year?

well in my current country the traditions is turkey .... also I am from germany and their might be several traditional dishes, but most popular are roasted goos, roasted duck, these days also turkey or meat fondue or even raclette.... (well dishes to spend a few hours with your family).

I am still not sure were I will be on christmas ... hence so far no clue..

What will be your christmas dinner?

Cheers

I'll be with the in-laws in South Africa this year, so instead of the traditional roast turkey, we will probably be having braaied (barbequed) turkey

Haven't decided yet - it's our first Christmas at our house in Sydney, so haven't decided whether to do the turkey and trimmings that I've grown up with, prime rib that my hubby is used to, or something more appropriate to the climate which would probably involve a trip down to the fish market.

Hmmm... choices choices.

Used to be turkey & ham with the trimming until a few years ago, now it's a barbecue with some seafood. Still include the turkey & ham for those who want it, we just don't cook a huge turkey like before.

I love them, needless to say they will be on our plate on Christmas Day. We will be having a turkey crown as we usually do. Starter will be king prawn cocktail, and for dessert we will probably have a cheesecake (if I have anything to do with it, it will be a Baileys flavoured one)

All of this will be after the 'bar' has opened at 10am in our house, gawd knows how we make it through the day after all the drink we have, lol

On Boxing Day, we have home made twice cooked chips with our cold meat and pickles, accompanied with home made bread buns with lurpack smothered in them.

On December 24th we prepare 12 different dishes, all of them are with fish. Except from one or two additional salads and the soup made of beetroot. Meat is allowed to eat on Dec 25th - then we have roast goose or something like that.
And there is always an additional cover for an unexpected guest - so feel free to visit.

I ususlly cook a turkey on Thanksgiving and a ham for Christmas.

One year I cooked Prime Rib for Christmas instead of a Ham, either one is good and a change of pace from turkey.

I can't think of any Christmas I've ever had turkey for dinner. I've been trying to convince the family to let me make duck or goose this year, but no one seems that interested. Since we moved from the Midwest it seems less accepted in Washington state.

We generally have roast beef or ham as well as enough food that we snack the whole day after opening presents and watching football on TV. One of the benefits of being the father of both side of the family's first and only grandchild last New Years is now both grandmothers come here for major holidays and make food for everyone.

Totally non-traditional for me. This year I'm stuffing a fresh Rainbow Trout with a lime/dill garnish. The stuffing is made fron breadcrumbs, shallots (scallions), shrimp, crab meat, and perhaps some diced scallops

It's rolled tightly in tin foil (aluminum foil for some) then baked in the oven.

It will be a dinner on 26th Dec starting at around 2pm at the home of my sister-in-law (brother got out of the race back in 1994), and we will have a fondue. Neither she nor I particularily love it but the Fiancé of her daughter is very fond of it, and she is such a superb cook that I nevertheless look forward to the meeting.

In the evening of 24th I possibly will, as each year since 1988 (when Mom passed away) attend a ceremony at "my" old church, and, if time permits, take a nice Turkish meal close to the place.

My aunt (by marriage, but like any other aunt) grew up in a traditional Polish Catholic household, where meat (other than fish) was not eaten on Christmas Eve. So, each year, we do a big seafood spread. My uncle and I rotate in making cioppino (mine is better   ) and we make a few other things. Christmas Day is usually a turkey lunch/dinner in the refrain of Thanksgiving, though we sometimes do something different.

I doubt it will be that many of the crew. The cockpit crew stays 48 in BOM the cabin only 24 hours. So the evening where we could have yummy diner, our cabin crew heads back to FRA already. So I guess it will be the Captain, me and maybe one or two F/A's who get a quick meal before heading to the airport...

I see you have made a Norwegian of yourself for christmas   Typical Norwegian christmas food ... Will you have beer and Akvavit / aquavit too ?



We will have roasted pork belly here on the 24th ( In Norway it is 24th of december that is the big day with presents etc ) and also typical Norwegian Julepølse ( christmas sausage wich is pork made with powdered ginger, cloves, mustard seeds and nutmeg. Served steamed or roasted ).and Medisterkaker ( large meatballs made from a mix of pork meat and pork fat )



We will have several other christmas dishes on various other days during christmas ( days between christmas and new years eve ), such as:

Pinnekjøtt - salted, dried, and sometimes smoked lamb's ribs which are rehydrated and then steamed, traditionally over birch branches

Koldtbord: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koldtbord

Filet of turkey

We usually also include some tradittional Swedish dishes:

Swedish Julskinka ( christmas ham )

köttbullar - Swedish meatballs

Norwegian Christmas food with the exception of Lutefisk is the best food in the Norwegian cookbook, I stock up on ribbe and pinnekjott and eat it several time throughout the year, bummer that there is a shortage of both along with the great butter shortage this year, I'm amazed that Norway has run out of butter. Beer yes, aquavit no.

For Christmas Eve at my Gradparents, she prepares prime rib. It's entiretly too fatty and rare so I suggested fillet of beef this year. Crossing my fingers. She makes all the usual sides like mashed potatoes, etc and we have Christmas cookies for desert.

For Christmas, my family comes to my house, and I've taken over Christmas dinner. This year I will be making Beef Wellington. For those who dont know, it's fillet of beef wrapped in puff pastry. I make a peppercorn sauce to go with it. I also make mashed potatoes and gravy. Additional sides include green beens in a shallot sauce and corn. I may substitute asparagus for the green beens this year. I'm also in love with bressels sprouts (when prepared correctly), so they will be on the table.

For desert we will have cookies along with my orange zest cheesecake topped with a brandy strawberry sauce.   yummy.
So we beat on against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

Not just wrapped in puff pastry or the pasty goes soggy, which is the most common mistake people make when making beef Wellington, you have to wrap the beef in something like parma ham.

I'll be at my brother's so I don't really know what will be for dinner. Traditionally his wife makes prime rib, but with money being a bit tighter I am not sure what to expect.

As a rule I go Prime Rib > Turkey > Ham..... I'd be game for other game like venison or duck, perhaps lamb.


If my memory serves me right a few years back I made a small pot roast for XMAS dinner.

There is probably a reason why we only do it twice a year. A roast turkey with all the fixings is a pretty good meal, but outside of Thanksgiving/XMAS they are nowhere near as inexpensive. I think there is a lot of nostalgia around that meal.... the debate over jellied or whole cranberry sauce and the Stove Top stuffing.

After a lifetime of turkey (which is good for sandwiches, but indifferent for other purposes), we have settled on an assortment of tamales. A good tamale is proof that there is a God, and he (or she) loves us very much.

Thats why we Canadians do it right, we celebrate Thanksgiving on the second weekend of October so it gives us a nice two and a half month break between turkey dinners 

For us this Christmas, being German, we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve, so we'll be heading off to my sisters for a ham dinner and then Christmas Day, we have a turkey dinner with stuffing and cranberry sauce and then usually have another dinner at friends on Boxing Day.

I was just teasing! I think it's nice that each family has its own little traditions - I know mine certainly does too. Generally we're very traditional when it comes to the main meal though, in fact there was an outcry one year when it was suggested that we might have a goose rather than a turkey ("What??? It wouldn't be Christmas without turkey!!") even though I'm thinking that if you go back far enough, a roast goose on Christmas Day was probably more traditional than a turkey is today! Personally I can't stand Christmas Pudding either, but we always have one, although I usually ask for a big bowl of custard with a teaspoonful of Christmas Pudding...just to show willing you understand!

But Boxing Day has to be cold meats with mashed potato, my brother-in-law's (in)famous chilli pickled onions, Piccalilli (sp?), pickled cabbage etc., etc. Plus we always have a choice of either tomato or vegetable soup with freshly baked rolls first - although the soup is never home made, it always has to be Heinz, no substitutes allowed!

Haha, that's why we don't have it. My folks worked, they used to get hampers from their place of work and we would end up with two puddings, one used to end up with my aunt as we aren't keen on it. We used to keep it until Christmas was well and truly out of the way (about June) and we would have gallons of home made custard made with carnation cream, yum yum)

I'll be spending Christmas with the German side of my family. The Christmas dinner, served on Christmas Eve will be Carp. It comes from the Polish part of the family (Grandad).

Not the best fish to eat I have to admit. Hundreds of tiny, tiny little bones ensure you spend more time pulling the thing apart and "fishing" out the bones, than you do eating it.

If I'm not working at BWI for SWA Life /FL I'll do the ritual of my fellow Jews: Chinese Food! Chinese restaurants do a bang up business on Christmas Night in many towns.
