Christmas Eve: tamales, chicken tortilla soup, and Mexican hot chocolate. Christmas Day: traditional turkey and sides...ham and Mexican sides as well if we are dining with DH's family.

Sometimes we have tamales, rice, etc. Most often we end up having ham, and the usual Thanksgiving sides... however, we've all decided that we really don't even like most of that food, or the usual Thanksgiving food for that matter. We just eat it due to tradition.

So, this year I think we'll have one of our favorite overall meals that we often have for birthdays or other celebrations:

Red pepper parmesan chicken (easy, pretty decadent, yummy) which is just chicken breast tenders, dipped in butter, then in a mix of breadcrumbs/red pepper flakes/garlic/parmesan, then placed on a baking sheet. Drizzle more melted butter and bake. Amazing.

Homemade macaroni & cheese

Homemade biscuits

Huge salad with mixed greens, red onion, red pepper, yellow pepper, broccoli, baby carrots, etc.

Something involving asparagus.

There is usually so much food around Christmas that we just order the sandwich plate from HEB. It's good to snack on, great with beer and easy to offer uninvited guests that alway's show up that time of year.

we love our munchies during the day -- veggie platter, rye bread dip, crackers and cheese, shrimp cocktail etc. but thought I would try and make a new recipe I saw in the Express Food section...the one with eggplant and shrimp. Ooooh, it looked good. Kids probably won't eat it so I'll force it on the company because I am dying to try it out!
