What Are You Having for Christmas Dinner?

Christmas is getting close.  How's your blood pressure? :)

This is usually the time when I start thinking how close we are to the finish line and how much I still have to do.  eeks.  I love the holiday season, but at this point I've triple checked my Christmas list and made countless trips to Target... so it's just tying up a lot of lose ends.

Ho Ho Ho 😳

One of my favorite friends who is an amazing cook came into town a few weeks and brought up his Christmas dinner menu and the difficulty he had finding good recipes.  He and I thought it would make a great post!  I think of prime rib and potatoes for Christmas dinner, but I wondered what other people do.  I polled my friends and scoured Pinterest to come up with some great ideas for you guys!  Here are some of my favorite:

Appetizers:

Sausage Dip - I made this for a party last weekend, and it was a huge hit!

Trisha Yearwood made these Sausage Balls on her cooking show recently, and I think they would make a great Christmas app.

Chicken Curry
Roast Beef Tenderloin

One of my facebook friends suggested Perini ranch tenderloin from Texas, which looks and sounds amazing.

Crispy Prosciutto Wrapped Balsamic Green Beans
Slow Cooker Creamed Corn
Garlic Rosemary Roasted Potatoes
Creamed Spanich
Scalloped Potatoes
Honey Glazed Carrots
Garlic and Rosemary Skillet Bread

Do you have any ideas to add?  I'd love to hear your traditions too, and if you have any favorite cookie recipes, please let me know!  Thanks!
