Let me put it this way. EVERYONE cooks in my family. There is never a shortage of food. Last time I thought about it I counted 22 separate dishes, not counting desserts. That wasn't surprising so much that I counted 5 or 6 kinds of potatoes (scalloped, Au gratin, sweet, mashed w/ garlic, mashed w/o garlic). There was another kind... but I can't remember what it is off the top of my head.

We are going to a restaurant with my family. It is buffet.

I'll be cooking the Christmas meal, though. Turkey, ham, 2 kinds of dressing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans, sauerkraut, gravy, cranberry sauce, creamed corn, rolls, nut pudding and pumpkin pie, and others bring in pecan pie, apple pie, rum cake, mince meat pie.

Magus, I am curious about what you have, if you wouldn't mind listing them?

Let me see... This varies slightly from year-to-year, but mostly stays the same. These are the basic essentials:

Turkey

Ham

Smoked Ham

Mashed Potatoes w/ Garlic

Mashed Potatoes w/o Garlic (My Grandma doesn't like garlic, thus why we have two kinds)

Scalloped Potatoes

Potatoes Au Gratin

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet Potato Pie (That's the one I think I forgot)

Green Bean Casserole

Jello (Usually two or three kinds)

Hawaiian Bread (Not any kind of family gathering without this)

Strawberry-Spinach Salad

Frog-Eyed Salad

Rolls

Stuffing

Stove-top Stuffing (My cousin HAS to have this. Nobody else wants it so she makes it and is usually the only one to eat it)

some kind of Vegetable-Swiss Cheese casserole

French Silk Pie (Baker Square, making this from scratch would doubtless be a challenge)

Pumpkin Pie

Pecan Pie

Apple Pie

Cherry Pie

Raspberry Pie

Assorted Drinks (Milk, beer, water, pop... duh. :wink: )



I have a friend who's family makes Turduckin every year. for those of you who don't know, Turduckin is a chicken in a duck in a turkey. It's supposedly, and sounds, very good. I myself have never had it though.

wow magus. wow. that is...wow. our menu goes thusly:

Turkey

Stuffing variety 1 (cooked in the bird)

Stuffing variety 2 (cooked out of the bird, lest the juices seep in and offend my sensitive vegetarian palate ;) )

Mashed 'Taters

Cranberry Sauce variety 1 (from the can, cause my sister won't eat it unless it is shaped like a can)

Cranberry Sauce variety 2 (homemade. just because)

White Grape Jello with gingerale and grapes in it

red jello with gingerale and cranberries (i think) in it

asparagus

apple crisp

random pie

mmmm...can't wait!
