What Do You Make For Christmas Dinner?

With Christmas coming up, I thought I’d ask what everyone is planning on making.

The traditional dinner Americans inherited from England is the goose. Just ask Ebeneezer Scrooge. We’ve modified that slightly, and are more likely to do turkey. Ask the dad in A Christmas Story.

Then there’s the Feast of the Seven Fishes that we got from Sicily, but is now more common as an Italian-American tradition than it is an Italian one.

I’ve mentioned before that I like to do a standing rib roast. Big ‘ol hunks of beef are welcome at most any gathering.

You can go with the Christmas Ham, or tweak that a bit and go with a sausage-based dish.

Some people, unfortunately, don’t get to choose what they’re having.
