Christmas Eve and Christmas Day Meal
« on: November 27, 2012, 09:41:32 am »
I am starting plan what I am going to smoke/cook for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, we will have about 20 people for each meal.

I am thinking of two rack's of pork or a Pork loin for Chistmas Eve and a Turkey or Ham for Christmas Day. 

what is everybody else cooking, looking for some good ideas.

Man I haven't had that in years.
You wouldn't happen to have any favorite recipes for that would you?  :)

Christmas Day I think I will change it up a bit from my norm with a Roast Duck, mashed taters and gravy and maybe a green been casserole. Nothing fancy.
Now Christmas Eve on the other hand wears me out that is why I keep it simple on Christmas Day. Baccala Stew, Smelts, Shrimp and Orange Salad, Stuffed Calamari, Alice and Macaroni (Anchovy Pasta), Steamed Mussels, Steamed Shrimp and my favorite ... Fried Dough rolled in Sugar and Cinnamon.  I always have to make a dozen or so without the cinnamon and sugar and add a whole anchovy in the center of the dough ball.  ;)
And I nearly forgot LOADS of Cookies  :D

Funny you say that, I just had a conversation with my Mom about this and we decided we are going to do a Turkey and Ham.

I roast a goose and we get a Honey Baked ham for dinner. For lunch, we do cheeses and cured Italian meats like salami and sopressata, and raw marinated, and fried vegetables.

Christmas Eve, we have  a Sicilian style 'seven fishes', though not THE seven fish that are traditional. We have octopus, calamari, shrimp, and a few finfish. might include smoked mullet this year if I can net some.

Did a bone-on rib roast last year on Christmas day, but I'm thinkin pork spare ribs this year.
I'm just a social smoker, I can quit any time I want.
