Well, turns out we're having homemade pizza for Christmas dinner. :) Not at all traditional, but summer-friendly and extremely delish.

 

Not sure if that'll be for dinner or lunch, and what we'll be having for the other meal. Probably a platter with fancy cheese, chips and dip etc.

Your dinner sounds amazing.

 

I have never had any fancy stuffing. DF doesn't even like celery or onion in his, so usually ours is kind of plain. I don't mind, though, because I do love stuffing. I've never had/heard of putting chestnuts or fruit or anything in it, the most "fancy" I've heard of is with oysters, which I guess is kind of fancy, but doesn't suit my tastes.

That all sounds really tasty! (I never think about it not being really cold/winter time everywhere for Christmas. It just doesn't compute. redface.gif But... I don't remember a lot of stuff, lately, so...)

I've seen quite a few recipes with dried cranberries, a few with raisins, a couple with citrus (only peels, I think - orange or lemon), and several with chestnuts or walnuts (the chestnuts are more common). Oh - and I've seen at least one with dried apricots. A lot of them have the giblets, too. I don't mind stuffing with the giblets, but I prefer it without.

Christmas Day dinner is just my husband, son and I. I always make pretty much the same thing - 

 

- Norwegian meatballs with dill gravy

- Mashed potatoes

- Sauteed kale with garlic and onions

- Croissant rolls

- Cranberry sauce (I usually serve lingonberries, but I couldn't find any this year)

 

Plus glogg to drink and cookies for dessert.
