We're tossing around the idea of doing cabbage rolls or stuffed peppers. Anything other than traditional food. I'm buying 1200 ribeyes tomorrow for work, if there's any left may do steak and potatoes.

Ron, on Wednesday, the United Supermarkets/Market Streets in Lubbock will run Prime Rib for under $7 a pound, which beats the $12.50 a pound normal price. These will be on sale until next Tuesday or until they run out. I am calling a General Manager Friend on Wednesday to get a 8 pounder ready for me and will let it age a Week in the fridge.

I was planning on cooking a prime rib anyhow, probably with my ceramic cooker and a little oak to get a light smoke taste into it. If you don't like fairly rare meat, this may not be for you. I will probably cut mine into two prime ribs so there will be 4 ends for the folks who don't like it very pink in the middle. A little Horse Raddish will also be good.

For the finiky people in my family, I have two pork loins, bacon wrapped (when you can find them, these have already been in the freezer a month.

I still have enough coined and corn meal coated okra to fry up for one good feed for our brood.

The ladies can worry about the rest of the sides and pecan pies.

Venison sounds like a great Christmas dinner this year. Heck, it sounds like a great dinner for any big occasion.

Don't celebrate Christmas.
Don't do real cooking.
In as much as I expect to be alone I might just heat up a frozen pepperoni pizza, OR maybe not.
The only thing I know for sure is that I will have some candy, probably peanut butter cups perhaps as many as 5.

+1. Prime rib roast with rosemary jus, garlic bleu cheese mashed potatoes, my wife's green beans and Sister Schubert rolls. (Oddly enough I DO have an in-law sister Schubert.) Maybe mimosas in the morning to start. Finish off with Chef Duane's Champaign Poached Pears with Crème Fraiche and pistachios (a specialty of mine, thankyouverymuch). Then watch a DVR'd Christmas Day Parade. I do love a parade.

Doing a Prime rib for our immediate family dinner but will also have several other dinners we have to attend on the 24th and early Christmas day. We'll probably be snacking for those. One of these years I want to do a turducken extreme. anyone know where I can get a humming bird and an emu? Probably going to have to get a bigger smoker and start on Black Friday so it's done by Christmas. Might have to go electric for that one.

Heavy Beef. I like sirloin roast over rib roast.
My dad likes rib so it will more than likely be PR but I'll see what's to be had at the store. My cousins inlaws are raising black angus so i might have to see what's on the farms meat room.
I have some baby collard greens in the garden that will be on the table.

After years, maybe decades, of being responsible for feasting the whole family on Christmas Day, (standing rib roast and all the normal fixings), I promised my dear wife the day off now that we're all alone. We miss the departed parents, the far-flung siblings and offspring, but she doesn't miss the preparation and I don't miss the dirty pans and dishes.

For the fifth or sixth year now we will dress up just a little and go to the Island Hotel for their multi-course Christmas Dinner. Of the several main course selections I will undoubtedly have the lamb chops, and she will most likely have the crab cakes.

Knob Creek prior, a house Cab with the meal and coffee with dessert, then home to sloth out. Merry Christmas!

If you should pull off your version of a turducken, we want pic's:)
