need help with x-mas dinner
Hey everyone I can not think of what to have for Christmas dinner. The only
thing I have
been able to come up with is Ham, and either Macaroni and cheese, or fettuccini
I think I have overloaded my brain this year trying to getgood ideas for the
kids gifts without
breaking the bank, and then finding out the company that I work for is closing
this office in
So if anyone has any ideas I would appreciate them.

What we are doing this year is this. We have baked a ham already. J We are going to cube it, have cubed a block of cheese and picked up a couple of boxes of cheap round crackers. Rather than having a formal ?Christmas Dinner? we are going to snack all of Christmas day on Cookies, the ham, cheese, crackers, carrots and celery. My kids (8, 9, and 11) are actually excited that they will be allowed to snack all day! The adults will probably have oatmeal for breakfast. Santa for some reason always includes an apple and an orange in my kid?s stockings. My 11 yo told me that she thinks it?s because he wants them to be healthy and not get sick on all of the candy he leaves so they have something nutritious to eat while they are opening gifts,

My husband cooks a BIG breakfast. We cook sausage, bacon, biscuits, eggs, gravy, jelly, etc. We invite his parents, my mom and step dad, over for breakfast Christmas morning. We usually have lots of leftovers that we snack on all day. We also have some finger foods like chips and dip, veggies, crackers and cheese, and fruit for snacking on all day. It isn?t your traditional Christmas dinner but we have been doing it for 8 years and prefer it. Everyone looks forward to our Christmas breakfast every year.

My husband's family does Christmas breakfast, too. In the past few
years, it wasn't on Christmas morning, because we used to drive to
my home town Christmas morning. Tomorrow, we'll be up here, having
the breakfast FOR breakfast on Christmas Day.
We do Crepes, mostly, which I'm not a fan of. I'm brining along home
baked chocolate chip muffins, and I'll bake up a few tubes of
cinnamon rolls when I get there. There's usually a bunch of cut up
fruit sitting out, and crackers, cheese, and veggies, too.
