The wife's family comes over,but it's very informal. Who ever shows up,great.
We have a turkey and ham in the oven. The fridge is full of beer,and I picked up a bottle of Jim Beam for me. Besides protein and liquor,we have some desserts too!
Christmas day,different story.
Race Less Train More
Run until the trail runs out.
Drake...Bourbon is always a good bet.
We divide the Christmas Eve meal up. I'm cooking a Rib Roast aka Prime Rib and Macaroni and Beer Baked Cheese. DW is making the three layer Chocolate cake right now.
Huge selection of beer. Something for everybody.

My family tradition was always Pancakes and Eggs on Christmas Eve. My adopted family does soup - usually chowder. I made a big pot of vegan Minestrone last week. Half of it went to Saturday's race. The rest is going to dinner tonight.

I put other as I havent decided yet but probably nothing special. Xmas day is the big meal and we had friends over last night. I probably should have clicked "leftovers" as there is a good chance that is the deal.
After dinner we'll have eggnog and cookies.
I have become Death, the destroyer of electronic gadgets

Growing up we did something like this...a random buffet of everyone's favorite foods in our family of 5. There was almost always boiled shrimp, broiled steaks, pickled herring (we're Vikings, after all), Swedish fruit soup, Sloe gin slush, olives, pickles, Boston cream pie, 5 year cheddar (nowadays our favorite dairy also does 10 and 15 year, so we have that any time my family is together).
roasted lamb with russel sprouts, broccoli and freshly dug own garden parsnips and carrots.

Not a dude
Our kids are with their other parents tonight. We are going to see The Hobbit here in a little bit and then we are going out to dinner, probably to The Olive Garden so we can stuff our faces and then come home to lay waste to the vodka we purchased at the liquor store this afternoon. We hate not having our kids on Christmas Eve, but we try to make the most of it and enjoy our time together.
day after day sameness
Steamers, lobster, & cheese souffle. Can't buck tradition.
I've done my best to live the right way; I get up every morning and go to work each day...
lobster & cheese souffle.

Wigilia here too.
Add some pickled herring, and there you go.

Hopefully take out...as my cupboards are bare, but I'm not even sure if there are any restaurants open around me!
Chicken fajitas, twice-baked potato, a taste of bleu cheese potato salad, yellow cake with chocolate frosting, and banana pudding.
Longboard lager and koko brown ale.
Bufala pizza from Bianelli's would be good.
DGF's apple pie.
