No Turkey!

Anybody else having dinner without turkey?

That is the verdict around here.
We had one at Thanksgiving, but for Christmas it will be King Salmon caught by your's truly, and a beef roast. Looking for beef and recipes my wife and I can agree on.

I don't decide such things (going to my parents place for Christmas)... Family Tradition would typically be a Prime Rib roast, though. A couple years ago, we did a Crown Roast of Pork that was mighty tasty.

Turkey and Ham are typically Thanksgiving and New Years, respectively. Though New Years Ham has not been done in many years (too many leftovers not yet finished).

Lasagna has been a Christmas tradition for us since my mom adjusted my recipe to work in the giant crock pot she has. Yes, crock pot and yes, a recipe of mine that my mom uses. Pigs do fly.

No turkey at either Thanksgiving or Xmas, most of our family just doenst like it. So we do chicken. Although the lasangna thing has been tried once or twice.

Roasted veggies are a good match with salmon. cut red or purple potatoes, carrots, asparagus, cualifower, broccoli -- on foil generously drizzled with olive oil (we use garblic olive oil) and lots of coarse salt and pepper. bake at 350 for 20-30? I like my carrots softer so I ask for the longer time... but not everyone does. Im sure there are plenty of recipeis on the web.

I won't be having turkey for Christmas (or any other time) There's an enzyme in white meat turkey that can trigger a gout attack in some people (ask me how I know).

Ham.

When I was a kid, we went around the table saying what we were thankful for one Thanksgiving and I said I was thankful we weren't having turkey.

Just for the record, neither I nor anyone I know has ever gone out to eat Chinese food on Christmas. It's a weak joke that somehow people believe.

My Mom wants ham, so I'm warming up a ham.

(truthfully I'd rather pay $1.50/lb for ham than $7/lb for a rib roast).

I think we're doing a goose this year.

The locals do 'The feast of the seven fishes', and our take on that is a paella. Now, that will get me into a food coma.

We're eating Christmas dinner at my sister's house, as we have since Mom passed back in '88. Spiral sliced ham, turkey, and prime rib is my guess, since that's what we always have. She puts on a huge spread, and all her kids are now adults, so they help out.

I can eat virtually any part of a turkey. I like how my brother in law prepares the bird, he deep fries it out on the patio, injected with yummy seasonings. He's a pro at it, as he's done deep fried turkey since the craze first hit all those years ago.

Ha! We will have dinner at my brother's first, then go to a friend later who is making Chinese! And, there is a very good Chinese eatery nearby that is packed on Christmas Day by the Jewish population because all the other restaurants are closed. It's become a tradition for them!

We did it backwards this year, ham for Thanksgiving and a Turkey breast for Christmas. Just the 3 of us this year.

Prime Rib, a ham and the Mrs always slips in an Italian dish. (she's Italian) Lasagna, lasagna rolls or stuffed shells. I'm sending JDC's veggie mix to the Mrs. Sounds yummy!

Number Two Son and family are staying with us and they keep kosher. I'd like a leg o' lamb for Christmas dinner (they are Messianic Jews, so no problem with Christmas, either), but kosher lamb if you can find it is ridiculously expensive. So my wife ('Grammy') bought a bunch of chickens, which she's going to stuff and bake. That'll be fine.

I don't think I've ever had turkey for christmas dinner. Our traditional meal has always been roast beef with all the fixings, especially yorkshire pudding made according to the video I made of my yorkshire mum making it.

This year was the first Thanksgiving I think we've ever had where we didn't have turkey. We had fresh cracked dungeness crab...it was awesome!



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan
