Does your family do a traditional (Christmas, Chanukah, etc.) dinner? Or do you do a dinner based on family history?

We do a Swedish dinner at home for Christmas and I'm heading out tonight for a "Sons of Norway" dinner in Mission Hills. It's Scandinavian food, not solely Norwegian food and sans lutefisk.

Just curious if your dinner is turkey/ham with typical sides, or some interesting foods from the homeland.

Haven't done a traditional holiday meal for years. I made chicken noodle soup on Thanksgiving and will likely make chili on Christmas.

Tamales on my Mom's side. I have been making a Gumbo, crab cakes, and shrimp brochettes for the past four or five years on Christmas Eve. Not this year though, back to tamales. Topped off with a ton of booze of course!

I remember my neighbors making tamales every year, an awesome tradition. We always had turkey and/or ham. My Mom always gave everyone a choice before the big day, we got to choose a side dish or dessert, whatever. I knew there'd be good desserts and so on anyway so I usually asked for dilly bread. Now that you've reminded me, I may need to make this one myself from now on.

(Note - this calls for you to add dill seed to a stiff dough. That is NOT the same thing as a stiff dildo. In case there was any confusion)

Keystone Light? I don't drink it... I mean I have... I just named it because of it's place as a skank beer. I won't judge you though.

We have the usual... turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, etc. for dinner on Christmas Day. Then for New Years, we have ham and blackeyed peas.

Haven't done a traditional holiday meal for years. I made chicken noodle soup on Thanksgiving and will likely make chili on Christmas.

Dear Santa,

I think that it would be in your best interest to just keep flying past Fever's place this year. Just sayin'.

We do two. The first is a Swedish dinner complete with lutefisk, potataskorv, meatballs, lingonberries, home made rye bread and homemade cardamom bread

The second is a huge prime rib a couple days later

We traditionally make Hot Toddy's and Ben and Jerry's for our alcoholic beverages.
Otherwise the food is typical Mashed potatoes, green beans, potato salad, ham, turkey.

Usually appetizers and drinks at night on Christmas Eve and everyone opens presents. Then Christmas night is steak and shrimp.

Just curious, does anyone actually eat the lutefisk?

No not so much. Keith Stone is so smooth. Always.

I drink skank beer just not often Keystone. If I go all skanky I'm more likely to go PBR.

I change up the Christmas meal every year. Its actually the gift I give my parents so we head home and I bring all the grub and we feast on Christmas eve.

This year the menu is as follows.

Parmesan and Walnut stuffed dates
Blue Cheese and Walnut spread served with apples
Beef Tenderloin with garlic herb butter
Caramelized carrots, potatoes, and brussel Sprouts
Bread and butter
Apple Crisp

I was in Napa last week and bought some outstanding red wine from two different small producers. We will be drinking "F" in Red from the Fleury Estate Winery and Cutt from Hunnicutt Wines. Can't wait to drink the wine!

Sunday night we will have spaghetti and meatballs.

Yasure youbetcha we do. Its an acquired taste when my son was a little guy even he liked it. There are some ways to prepare it that are really horrid. Usually those crazy Norwigians have that. They have always been an odd lot though.
