I love a huge Christmas breakfast.Well, we never really did holidays as a kid, so a lot of what I think of as holiday foods are inherited from books, TV, and my wife's family.
Since it's just the two of us, I always prefer to keep things simple. The wife wants turkey on Thanksgiving, of course, and I always oblige, although I'm not particularly fond of turkey.
Give me 14 pounds of bread dressing/stuffing in its place, with lots of gravy, and I'm fine, so I'll make a lot of that for me.
Mashed potatoes, one other "sensible" vegetable, some cranberry relish, and that's the main meal. I also always make pumpkin pie for the wife (another "meh" dish for me) and one other dessert that I like more.
Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve, we almost always have fondue both nights.
I'm a stickler for a big breakfast Christmas morning, and we used to go out for that (that was the one tradition I started), but somehow, that turned into me making a big breakfast, and I don't know how that changed, but it did.
Christmas Day is also prime rib roast, oven-roasted potatoes, some other veg, and a couple of desserts.
We also have some kind of holiday punch on Christmas Day and New Year's Day.
New Year's Day is usually pork and sauerkraut, mashed potatoes, noodles, and whatever sounds good for dessert.
