Christmas meals

Recommended Posts

What's everyone cooking for a Christmas meal.  My side of the family meal is Christmas Eve night and I'm cooking a prime rib on the grill.  Loved it last year so I'll try it again.

As you stated earlier, you don`t shop or decorate so it`s the LEAST you can do...

try not to burn it also.

My wife says I'm good for one thing and only one thing, grilling.

When I got married I told the new bride we're breaking tradition and giving the turkey the boot. For 30 some years now it has been prime rib for Christmas dinner. This year we are trying it on the pellet grill with some apple wood pellets. Got me salivating like Pavlov's dog just thinking bout it😁

So you guys who grill your prime rib, got any good tips. Seasonings, grill types, temperature, how often do you turn it, etc. I have wanted to try it but have been afraid I would burn the outside and be raw on the inside. I have done turkeys and pork loins on a rotisserie with good results.

At my parents we've had Schwan's chicken kiev for like ever. When I was little it was too expensive so it was a once or twice a year thing. The tradition has just hung on for years.

Will have homemade mint oreo pie for dessert.

Wifes side is whatever grandma makes, usually WAY to much of it and we all bring home leftovers.

Last year it had a garlic rub on the outside and was very good.  This year I used just a tenderizer and a traeger beef rub and cherry pellets.  I always taste test while cooking to verify its good.

likely pnut butter n jelly here on cmas day, had cmas at my folks over the weekend, my married daughter will be at her own home/moms/inlaws - my unmarried two bio kids will be at their moms also, i will have late cmas eve with my 3 bio 2 bonus kids for the 2 hour of food/unwrappings - probably just make some ham/turkey sliders and chips/dip for that. We go to my wife's family for 2 hours on cmas eve also late afternoon/early evening. 

My wife and I are empty nesters on Cmas day. Not sure how i feel about it honestly, makes me a lil sad. My wife and I usually go for a walk, catch a movie, something like that. We have served at food pantry/shelters as well.

Sometimes I go out and chop/split wood - work on a lil something in my heated barn/shop area. Go help a neighbor, etc.......depends on the year and weather. 

When I am sad/hurting anytime such as cmas day, I usually isolate and numb with work. Its been my drug of choice my entire life even as a kid.  I get satisfaction out of that and some exercise. 

I hope to be working when i fall over dead - its the one thing in life i feel content with, im serving a purpose and someone is benefiting from it.

Thank you lord for your blessings to serve others, the knowledge to accomplish such things and the physical health to work.

Beef burned on the outside and raw on the inside is near perfectly done.

The wife boiled a Clifty Farm ham last week, made enough candy to feed a army. She has home made rolls rising now. Me I smoked a 10lb butt for our community supper night before last. Was sure I would have enough left for sandwiches for a week, no the dish was clean when we got ready to go.
