    So here is my idea for Christmas dinner this year:


    Courgette (zuchini) fake spaghetti made with a Lurch spirali lightly sauted in olive oil and garlic (1 min) served with a wild mushroom sauce (yes I did collect them myself).


    Slow cooked lamb with garlic and rosemary. Broccoli with raisins, green olives and pine nuts.


    Home made almond chocolate cake.


    What are you all doing?

    Trukey, loaded sweet potatos, butternut squash and apple casserole... and veggies.


    There will be other stuff but that's what will dominate my plate

    Our Thanksgiving turkey disappeared so fast that I got another one for Christmas. I'll have sauteed sweet potatoes and onions on the side while the rest of the family piles it onto dinner rolls, with salad on the side. Couldn't be simpler.

    That sounds great, Judy!


    I think we are going to order chinese food actually. I'm thinking a shrimp and snowpea stirfry or something along those lines.

    You could probably order a pretty primal-friendly Egg Foo Young!

    I grok, therefore I am.

    Traditional Indian dinner - Biriyani with lots of chicken and less rice than usual - not Primal, but we are having an almost vegetarian company.

    Appies: Celery stuffed w/cream cheese and olives, deviled eggs (using Helmans Olive Oil mayo because I've never made my own and I'm not sure Christmas is the time to try), shrimp w/cocktail sauce


    Dinner: Fresh ham, roasted veggies, rosemary baby potatoes, salad and rolls (for the korgs) w/organic butter.


    Dessert: Dried fruit and nut platter, cookies & cheese cake (again for the korgs)


    All-in-all a fairly primal meal for me and enough of it is in disguise so I won't get an earful from DH's family who are traditionally SAD (in so many ways!)

    Prime Rib all the way baby! Can't wait, (but I shutter when I have to go pay the bill) Yikes! But I splurge once a year. Acorn squash, and shredded brussels sprouts, caramelized onion, and oyster mushrooms. Dessert? Fruit dipped in chocolate and whipped cream.
