I am stuffed! Why in the world I made an 18 pound ham, baked beans, and potato salad for Christmas eve I'll never know, other than it is a family tradition. I followed that up today with a 14 pound turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, Kentucky wonder green beans, deviled eggs, home-made yeast rolls, celery sticks with cream cheese, and a cherry pie! I thought I'd never fit everything in the refrigerator.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

Hey Dave, "Happy Festivus" back at you; I have my sweatshirt on today as It will get washed and put away for another year.

Hey Dwayne, we also cooked an 18 pound ham for Christmas Day for 12 and had plenty leftover to send some home with all the family members. Did a boneless pork tenderloin on the rotiserie for Christmas Eve dinner for seven. I think leftovers are on the menu for today.

Festivus for the rest of us!

I am already sick of ham and turkey, and we still have a uncooked turkey breast in the refrigerator. Why do so many Americans get hung up on ham and turkey every time Thanksgiving and Christmas roll around? But we do it, year after year.

I remember my father insisted on something different for Christmas dinner one year and said "no turkey!" I must have been 9 or 10 at the time. My mother relented but she was greatly annoyed when my dad prepared "spanish steak", which was really a chuck roast braised with bell peppers, onions, and tomatoes. I secretly loved it but acted like I was disappointed because I didn't want to upset mom. But hey, it had the Christmas colors of green and red in it!

Just got back from my brothers. Great Christmas. We have not had Turkey or Ham in years. It was as usual for us.. Prime Rib.

Family fun has kept me away from the computer! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Our daughter and grandson were at our house for Christmas morning. How fun to have Santa visit again! That was followed by the rest of the family coming for a big breakfast. Such a nice way to start Christmas Day.

Our family tradition is to have my brother-in-law fry crappie, bass, blue gill, etc. that he and my sister catch all year long. Delicious and a special treat when the snow is blowing--a reminder that Illinois will once again have warm weather in a few months!

Jan, you would have been most welcome if you were down my way. I would fix you right up.

Nadine, you've got me craving fresh water fish right about now. Nothing like fried crappie!

For those who don't know...crappie is pronounced "croppy".
