    I've got a spiral cut ham, gonna make corn pudding to go with, and
    something ["oriental"] green beans ... and a pineapple upside down
    cake.
    My cats love corn... this one is not spicy and contains no onions:
    http://allrecipes.com/recipe/grandmas-corn-pudding/

    Also along with my usual Crystal Palace I picked up a case of
    Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut.

    Have A Happy!

    Another turkey. With a different stuffing. We're not sure where this
    recipe came from but it became one of our favorites years ago:

    Seafood-Fennel Stuffing

    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    10 cups French bread -- 1/2" cubes
    1 pound shrimp, shelled and cut into pieces
    1 large can crabmeat (1 lb.)
    1 large onion -- chopped
    1 each red and green bell pepper (3/4 cup) -- chopped
    3 Tablespoons butter
    3 each eggs -- beaten
    1 can cream of shrimp soup, condensed (10 3/4
    oz.)
    1/4 to 1/2 cup milk
    1/2 cup fresh fennel -- chopped
    (or 1/2 tsp. crushed fennel seed)
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper

    (If desired) Spread bread cubes in a shallow baking pan. Bake at 300
    degrees F for 10-15 minutes or until dry, stirring once.

    In medium skillet cook onion, bell peppers and fennel (if using fresh)
    in butter until
    crisp-tender. Cool.

    In large mixing bowl, stir together crab meat, shrimp, onion/pepper
    mixture, eggs, soup, 1/4 cup of milk, fennel (if using seed), and
    black pepper. Stir in bread cubes until coated. For moister
    stuffing, stir in more milk.

    Bake in casserole(s) 45 minutes at 325 degrees F.

    No idea. It will be celebrated at two different houses; one Christmas
    Eve and the other one Christmas day.

    Fig and walnut tapenade
    Some cheese spreads that are undecided.

    10 pounds crab legs
    Calamari (frozen from Costco)
    Hush puppies
    Cheddar biscuits

    Not sure if a salad or veggie would be best.

    If I go with a salad I'll raid the salad bar at the local hospital.
    It's wonderful and I can't make a salad as cheap.

    It's just us and Louise's two daughters so it's going to be a simple
    meal. One was over last night and we had prime rib which was great so
    the feasting has already started.

    Monday is dinner with my son and my mom and we're going out so I don't
    have to cook.

    I am making cranberry sauce and my wife is making chocolate eclairs. We
    are going to my brother's for Christmas dinner and my sister in law will
    be doing almost everything, and her mother always makes Christmas
    pudding and caramel sauce.

    The good news this year is Christmas eve dinner will be tamales. The
    influence here is my MIL, who is Basque, but grew up on a sheep ranch in
    Arizona.

    Bought a Morel EZ Cut ham for a meal on or about Christmas.

    Christmas day, going to a friend's house for prime rib. She may have
    it in the oven when we get there, but I'm in charge of finishing it to
    medium rare and doing the carving. Probably eight of us for dinner
    and a day of relaxation together.

    I may have posted this already (my dad and stepmom don't eat flour,
    sugar, wheat, nuts, or dairy, and they'll be here for one day, so I'm
    making the whole dinner friendly to their diet):

    Standing rib roast (no gravy, just the jus on the side -- if there's
    enough of it, I'll cook it down into a gravy-like substance)
    Crash hot potatoes (
    thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2008/06/crash-hot-potatoes/ )
    Baked sweet potatoes
    A pumpkin (or individual winter squashes) stuffed with brown and wild
    rice and herbs
    Some sort of green vegetable
    Cooked carrots
    Corn
    Huge salad with homemade no-sugar dressings and for my dad, James's
    homemade salsa (he's always preferred salsa on his salad instead of
    dressing)
    Layered red/white/green fruit salad in a glass trifle dish
    Sugar-free pumpkin custards (my dad and step-mom drip liquid sweet-n-lo
    on theirs; I use the recipe from Libby's (though I don't buy that brand,
    'cause they're Nestle) and just leave out the crust and the sugar)
    Coffee and tea

    I've posted it and remember you commenting on the Kefalograviera
    cheese. I love the stuff but it's not something you scarf down the
    whole batch. I'll probably only make a half batch.

    Lou
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Fig And Walnut Tapenade

    1 cup chopped dried black mission figs
    1/3 cup water
    1/3 cup chopped/pitted kalamata olives
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
    1 tablespoon capers, drained and coarsely chopped
    1 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
    salt
    fresh ground black pepper
    1/2 cup toasted and chopped walnuts

    In a medium saucepan combine chopped figs and water. Cook over medium
    heat, stirring occasionally until liquid has evaporated and figs are
    soft. About 7 minutes.

    Transfer figs to a mixing bowl. Add olives, olive oil, balsamic
    vinegar, capers, and chopped thyme. Mix and add salt and pepper to
    taste.

    Refrigerate for 24 hours. (up to 3 days)

    Bring to room temperature and mix in chopped walnuts.

    Serve with Kefalograviera cheese slices on thin slices of French
    Baguette bread.

    Other Greek cheeses will work as will Manchego or Blues.

    Do NOT serve cold.

    That sounds wonderful Serene. You made a great menu around some pretty
    stiff dietary limitations.
    You live by your motto, "food isn't love, feeding people is love"

    Eating out. "Twas hard to find a place - I have learned to make
    reservations EARLY. Calendar for 2012 duly noted.

    Making date nut bread for gifts. Maybe some chocolate biscotti.

    Organizing our family is more difficult than navigating the Atlanta airport.
    Our time slot is 10:30 am - after some of them must have breakfast with
    another grandmother and before lunch with yet another. I'm only serving
    party food: pralines, caramel corn, nuts and bolts, cannon balls and Judy's
    candied walnuts. Polly
