Wednesdays Question

It's Wednesday so that means it's question time. It's time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We'd all like that.

So here's this weeks question: Cooking the big Christmas dinner and having lots of company or going to someone's house for Christmas? Or are you going to a restaurant?
None of the above. Hubby and I are having Filet Mignon roast, garlic potatoes, french green beans and my great garlic bread. Just us and so easy. We've already had dinner out with our family and exchanged gifts.

    We aren't having our O-fficial Christmas dinner until my sisterdear arrives after CHristmas. I-talian. MotherDear's lasagna and meatballs and all. Yum. Maybe for Christmas Day we'll fire up the grill and have what you're having. ;)

  3. We have family in, so we're doing the traditional turkey dinner at my mom's. There aren't a large number of restaurants open in Nashville on Christmas Day--I think there are a couple of places doing special Christmas dinners, but most restaurants are closed.

    1. I don't think there are a lot of places open here either. I sure wouldn't want to have folks work so I could eat out on Christmas. :)

  4. Usually we have to host and get the food for any family event. Thankfully we still host but my wife's sister is bringing all the food.

  6. Just us this year. We are going to the nearby casino that day to rest, play a little, and eat. Kids and grandkids are 5 hrs away, and none of us can make it because of work schedules this year, so we are meeting halfway on the 23rd for lunch and swapping gifts.

  7. None of the choices listed. If the weather is good I'll be going to a Christmas Eve party with my family but it's just easy stuff like hot dogs and whatever anyone brings to pass. Christmas day I'll be alone but that's okay.

  9. Yes, I'm cooking Christmas dinner for my daughter & her family, my friends Al & Meilin and of course my daughter & wife. I enjoy arranging the Christmas dinner. It won't be any big thing. We're starting with seafood antipasto, next my wife's soup following with the main attraction of Breast of Chicken or lamb or ham ( Meilin is bringing the ham ) veggies of corn, broccli cheese pototoes ( my daughter is bringing it ) and stuffing. Also Meilin is bringing a Chinese dish of dumplings( very delicious, I had them before ) and for dessert a plate of my bakes goodies with either coffee or tea. After I think I'll go to sleep. Ha,ha,ha.
    Have a wonderful Wednesday Sandee. Also, I'm very happy that you received our Christmas card. See ya my friend.

  10. Everything was so up and down here with my MIL trying to rearrange everyone to meet the requirement of her (40+ yr old) daughter not to have this person there, this person there, or this person there, or she wouldn't come! that we decided to go to DC (to be with my oldest son and his family) for the holiday. :) Now my MIL is up and arms about when/how she can come and get her gifts since we're leaving, hahaha. Oh my, I'm not going to miss the drama... I'm going to love the day! :)

  12. Christmas Eve in our family has been traditionally held at my mom & dad's house where the growing family (new significant others, new spouses, new babies, etc) gathers. My mom has decreed that she will do it as long as she can. Thank goodness she's still healthy and active enough to do it.

    Christmas Day at our house is usually a quiet day with the nuclear family. Since we just had turkey on Thanksgiving, we usually go with a spiral ham or Yankee pot roast. My husband is from New Hampshire and loves this rib-sticking dish. I'm good either way as long as I get some brussel sprouts as a side dish.

    1. Yankee pot roast sounds really good. I was raised on that kind of rib-sticking food. I love brussel sprouts too. :)

    4. I do value my anonymity while online for obvious reasons. I'm not that way in person. For the record, I live in the crazy state of Florida.

  16. We bring food to Grandma and Grandpa's house, they cook the turkey and some traditional stuff, we bring cornbread and dressing and i make the gravy and potatoes when i get there. We also bring pie. My brothers also come, bearing gifts, and, in the case of the younger, more food. Uncle P usually only brings his appetite to the dinner table!
