I have a book called "Cooking by the Seasons". It's very Pagan led, I'm not sure if that appeals to you. But if it does, I have a good idea for a meal.<br><br>
As for us, this year, we're having a Dickens Xmas dinner. The Crachits had goose, but that's cause they were poor and it was cheap. We're having Cornish hens for the same reason. But everything else is the same. Applesauce (warmed and spiced), mashed potatoes, and something yummy for dessert (that I have yet to figure out! Eek!). The Crachits had plum pudding, but I am not a fan. :p And prolly some sort of dinner roll.

I'm making a five cheese lasagna, roasted red pepper and corn chowder, seasoned breadsticks, and a chocolate cake for dessert. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy">

How about all the "fixin's" minus the turkey? Cranberry sauce, stuffing (obviously not made inside a bird,lol)- baked sweet and white potatoes, squash casserole (mix baked squash with a can of crushed pinapple,a can of mandarin oranges, and some cinammon, bake til its warm and browned.)

We don't celebrate X-mas, but every year we get together with another Jewish family and have Chinese food and go to the movies. This year X-mas falls on Shabbat, and we are having a stupendous (I hope!) potluck of vegetarian Chinese dishes on Saturday afternoon for lunch. Now, I have no idea how this is going to come out, but I am psyched to be planning to make steamed buns. I think it's going to be a lot of dumplings!

That's so funny rainbowmoon, I was just going to post that I knew a family that also did that for their Christmas dinner. Big tamale spread with all the fixin's- beans, rice, salsa, guacamole, queso.
