Christmas Eve Dinner -
a honey baked ham (oh so yummy cant wait for it!) sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, my granny's dressing, dinner rolls (experimenting already with homemade recipes) and desserts, well there will be tons of those, and of course some cookies to leave out for Santa

Christmas Morning -
fresh cinnamon roll Christmas tree, oatmeal, fruit & juice

-and that will be our Christmas, at lunchtime Christmas Day we will be 'cutting off' Christmas and celebrating our sons birthday for the rest of the day

I understand the never eating it part. I love to make homemade cranberry sauce cause it's so festive and I don't really know why I like to make it so much but the problem is I really dislike cranberries and my family would rather have the sauce from a can so there is always a little bowl on untouched homemade cranberry sauce just cause I think it's fun to make.

I am still planning our christmas menu. This year I would like to try a couple new dishes. We usually have a traditional roast dinner with Turkey, cranberry and sage stuffing, roast potatoes with bacon, saffron mash, sprouts with pancetta and other winter vegetables with a nice dressing.

This year we will still have turkey but I'd like to try a couple new side dishes. I am getting some really good ideas from this site so I'm excited.

Breakfast is usually ham, croissoints or bread rolls since we don't have much time because we visit my in laws for a couple hours around mid day.

Desert is an array of seasonal biscuits, marshmallows, chocolate, cakes, apple crumble with vanilla/cinnamon custard or Winter Fruit Trifle.

My grandma makes scalloped corn, but I've never watched her do it. I know it involves creamed corn, butter and crushed crackers.
