    THIS THREAD BELONGS IN THE 'OFF TOPIC" SECTION - MODERATOR

    Well, it's about that time of year for the feasting to begin. Being from the south, I was wondering what people from other parts of the world are having to feast on for Christmas festivities. I find it interesting to see the meals that others share that I was never accustomed to having.


    Like I say, being a southerner we eat really well off the land and would like to share with ya what's gonna be on out table this year.


    'Coon and collards with all the trimmings,
    Cook to perfection by all the wimmins,

    Possum and taters with a side of grits,
    and hope to hell it don't give ya da chits.

    Homemade tamales from an ancient recipe. Includes meat from hog's head, pig ears and pig skin and freshly grown peppers (over 400 on hand). If you like truly authenic tamales, come to my house for Christmas...

    Two day advanced notice required.

    It's a tradition in my wife's family that perogies are served. Her mother is Ukranian.

    For a meat dish I've been asked to make my smoked pork shoulder.

    First a Champane toast to those not here and then it's gonna be ham, mashed pototos, home canned green beans and a wedge of homemade mincemeat pie. Then we retire to the living room with a snifter of Hennessy and exchange gifts.

    Boiled gammon, boerewors with chakalaka, steamed pumpkin cubes, and pap.

    OK, probably not really.

    King prawns ( large shrimps) with a tangy seafood sauce

    Double smoked ham off the bone

    Slices of smoked salmon

    Coleslaw

    Potato salad

    Cold roasted turkey breast meat

    Milt, I may come to your place. My wife & I are foodies and never have a meal without peppers. If it is not hot, it aint on the table. We will most likely have Carnitas with our home made salsa and a couple cold Corona Familiar. Then top it off with a good scotch. Your tamales sound awesome. we eat steak or mex food, sometimes pasta but mex is on top. The wife just shared with me that we are having the traditional Pork butt

    Milt, Gene J was tongue in cheek. If he brings George, you'll need about 3 doz extra tamales. George is a pretty good cook his own self. You'll have to make it to Buffalo Creek. He's always got good chow.

    The whole fam damily (about 20 of us) will meet at my sisters place. We'll have roast prime rib, ham & turkey with loaded mashed and garlic mashed taters, stuffing, gravy, baked squash, a couple of different salad and veggie dishes. Oh yeah... of course we'll start with hors douvres' and beverages. We'll finish with more goddies including pumpkin, mince meat, grasshopper & apple pie. I'm sure there'll be a nap in there somewhere. Normally there would be some cross country skiing and snowmobiling in there too but it looks like it will be a brown Christmas here in central MN this year.
