I've got a glazed ham and I was thinking of tossing the packet it comes
with and making a nice orange sauce. Add a side of cranberry salad, some
cheesy corn, and.... I'm still working on the rest.

What are the rest of you planning?

That packet is brown sugar and a wee bit of cinnamon, can't hurt to use
it... but you need to add whatever liquid they specify... so why not
say "what do they know, screw em"... use orange juice as the liquid,
even better use frozen oj concentrate with half the water, and even
better than water use your favorite white wine.

Since 1981 we have committed ourselves beforehand to cooking and eating
whatever is the main Christmas dinner in the December issue of Gourmet
magazine. This forces us to cook and eat 2 or 3 things that we never had
before every year. We become better cooks and expand our repetoire.
This year it is an appetizer of mussels. The main entre is a crown roast of
pork with sage stuffing, potatoes roasted with lardons, a puree of celeriac
and apple, and French green beans. The dessert will plow new ground for me
using pate au choux to make a Paris Brest that will be served with poached
oranges.
Sincerley yours,
Ed Warren

I have always loved Gourmet's holiday menus. Although we haven't done it
with annual precision, we have duplicated their holiday menus many times
over the years. It is always an adventure and never a disappointment.

Enjoy!

We're the stuck-in-a-rut family. Christmas is ham and the "usual
suspects".

Green bean casserole (I don't want to hear it! <g>)
Sweet potatoes (I do get to pick which kind - candied or casserole)
Southern fried corn
Broccoli with cream sauce
Creamed Potatoes

Waldorf salad
Elaine's pear concoction (It was an accident, I swear)
Mom's OrangeJello/pineapple/whipping cream salad

Yeast Rolls

Banana Pudding
Pumpkin or Sweet Potato Pie(s)
Pecan or French Coconut Pie(s)

Fresh Apple or German Chocolate cake (maybe)

Aw, geez. I'm exhausted all ready.

Elaine, too
