I'm stumped. I need a Vote of the Week, and I have to figure out what to cook for Christmas.

Most puerto ricans traditionally eat pork on Christmas. We buy them fresh off the farm(whenever available) and it takes 2 whole days to get it ready. Tastes' freaking AWESOME!!!

The DLR plans are off because there's Christmas dinner with relatives this year. :) (Don't worry, I was at DLR for Candlelight Processional so I did get in a Christmas-time visit like I've been wanting to forever.)

It's All About the Big Three. That's turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing. (The latter two mainly--meat of any sort is a low priority for me.) And lots of gravy of course, and a side item or two like rolls and veggies. And of course, pumpkin and apple pie about five hours later.

Christmas Eve is all about the seafood...shellfish and stuff. Christmas day is usually a ham.

Being British I voted Turkey. Turkey on Christmas Day, Turkey sandwiches for Boxing Day, and then Turkey Sandwiches for about a week after that.

This year I'm eating at Mythos, so I'll be having ehatever is on the Menu (It better be good, I'm going as you guys voted it #1)

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to all.

FWIW, the Niles family verdict is in. It's steak: NY Strip for the missus and Filet for the kids. We had turkey for Thanksgiving and a ham for the 50-person cookie party/jam session we hosted last week. It's only the four of us here for Christmas this year, so a Prime Rib roast would have been too much. That left steak, by a 3-0 vote. (I abstained, since I'd fancy something completely inappropriate, such as curry vegetables with tofu, grilled salmon, or sushi.)
