    Roast beef, Yorkshire pudding, whipped taters, peas with pearl onions, Christmas pudding and apple pie for dessert (My wife thinks Christmas pudding is nasty, as she loathes raisins in every form. She is wrong, but that leaves more for me)

    Turkey, Spiral cut ham, mashed taters, gravy, stuffing, green beans (some veggie casserole of some sort) some sort of bread/rolls, so basically thanksgiving all over again - which is OK with everyone in our family

    Dessert is still unknown - it will be a last minute decision w3hile shopping Tues night

    Are we eating together? Sounds a lot like my menu, save the Christmas pudding, but adding brussel sprouts. We usually have some Scottish/British dessert which I don't know the name of. Big dish (think of an upside down cake cover) with whipped cream, jello and various fruits.

    Someday, perhaps, after our children are wed, we shall have Christmas together. It would be a privilege. I could even abide your Popish ways, Joe, because I hold you in such high regard

    Maybe cheese and perhaps shrimp for mine and Ottokar's wives. Shrimp are revolting water insects, though Mrs. Dreadnought gobbles them up on sight

    I hope you are not using a mixer b/c potatoes release starch when their cells are ruptured. A mixer will cause the spuds to become too gluey.

    You use a mixer to make bread, not mashed potatoes.
