Holiday Main Course?

So with Christmas, Thanksgiving and other holidays coming up, what is your favorite main course for the holidays?

Mine is fried shrimp, but we usually have Turkey.

I usually have turkey, but I prefer lamb - turkey can often be a bit dry.

We usually have cod on Christmas Eve and turkey on Christmas, or vice versa.

My mother is Norwegian, so we have a cod, with mashed potatoes and butter on a "lefsa", a Scandinavian tortilla made of potatos. It is freaking heavenly. Just have to get fresh cod, and avoid the bones.

Turkey is a given for Thanksgiving, but Christmas and New Years usually involve a nice piece of beef (roast beef/prime rib) or filet mignon.

Turkey/Ham for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. We can whip up a pretty awesome turkey. But we don't have an oven here in Thailand. D: So we must hit up the local "American" restaurant.

Roasted turkey, like it's going out of style. Both holidays of course.

Come to my house--my turkey is never dry! I cook it upside down (so turkey breast on the bottom), until the last 30 mins. Flipping it over is sometimes kind of tricky, but my guests are always amazed at how moist the white meat is.

We have turkey for both Thanksgiving and Christmas, but as I'm a Yankee abroad, Thanksgiving is still a bit of a curiousity/novelty for my in-laws. My hubby has dubbed it 'PCD' (Practice Christmas Dinner), but no matter how 'foreign' T-day might be to them, my in-laws still show up. I'm cooking for 14 this year.

I'm not really a Thanksgiving person. Texas Longhorns usually play that day, so I spend Thanksgiving outside at a tailgate party, so the main course is usually beer. They try to do a fairly traditional Thanksgiving meal, but I would rather have burgers, hot dogs or faijitas for my tailgate. Desert is more beer. Use to split my Thanksgivings between Austin (games) and Mississippi (dad's), but since my dad passed I split my Thanksgivings between tailgates and pizza.

Too many people overcook it. A good meat thermometer will tell you when it's done. For the turkey breast, we soak some cheesecloth in butter, lay that on top of the turkey breast part, baste the whole turkey frequently, and then remove the cheesecloth about a half hour before the turkey is done. That way, it browns evenly, too. Yummy!

My dad's family came from Vilnius. I'd love to hear more about Lithuanian traditions at Christmas.


From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"

So. Many. Choices.

I'll probably go with Lamb and Beef. My mother's side of the family is Lebanese (hence the lamb) and my dad's is German (hence the beef). Turkey is just overused, and it's often too dry for my liking, except when my grandmother cooks it when we go to Vermont for Thanksgiving.



Forgive, but never forget. No amount of DLC can take back lying to your fan base. Trust is earned, not downloaded.

See mim Lamb is a very important choice that you didn't even bother putting in the poll. For shame for being so culturally insensitive
