I dont know whats on the menu for the next meal let alone Christmas. I'll worry about Christmas dinner a day or 2 beforehand. No friends or family here so I can do that.

Don't know if I'll have room for Christmas dinner. We're going to my parents' so there's always plenty of country ham, eggs, potatoes, fruit salad, and a bunch of my mother's tiny biscuits! My uncle used to give speeches for Ralston Purina back in the 60s. He told one crowd he had a sister-in-law that cut her biscuits out with a Coca Cola cap! lol

We have a German Lutheran Christmas Dinner on the 24th:
Beef roast
Sweet cakes (Liquor Barn in Lexington sells the delicious Stollen!)
Noodle salads
Potato dumplings
Gravy. Lots of GRAVY!
Mashed potatoes

The following breakfast is the leftovers from that meal.
The 25th:
Turkey! Ham! Gravy! Mashed Potatoes! Corn! Beans! Cranberry sauce! MORE BREAD!

Then on New Years we have a meal that dwarfs both of these.

I usually fast a day or two after Christmas and New Years :P No amount of exercise can get rid of that much yum stored in the body.

Snappy cheese for an appetizer. For the meal, country ham and beaten biscuits, corn pudding, green beans almandine, scalloped potatoes, and maybe a waldorf salad. For desserts, jam cake, Derby pie, and bourbon balls.

Back in the day when my Christmases were spent with now dearly-departed kinfolks, our Southern Christmas dinners included turkey, dressing, sometimes duck, rice, green beans, corn pudding, sweet potatoes (a young cousin would scoop off all the marshmallows unless kept under tight surveillance), rolls, country ham, cranberry sauce, iced tea, and for dessert, choices of wine jelly with boiled custard, pound cake, ambrosia, coconut cake, mincemeat pie, lemon chess pie, and fruitcake, in any and all combinations.

Post Christmas dinner naps were another tradition for the adults in the family, while the kids played with their new toys or tried to see who could make our grandparents' front porch swing go the highest - then bail out!

Memories....my cousins and I preserve what we can.
