Default Christmas Dinner Menu ~ What's yours?

Well I've been sitting here working on the Christmas dinner menu and so far have come up with this.

Honey/butter glazed ham with glazed carrots (put in oven after scalloped potatoes are baked).

Scalloped potatoes with carmelized onions (I'm going to experiment with a white Hawaiian sweet potato on this and include crumbled bacon and gruyere cheese as the topping with cheddar for the layers.. half and half, salt and pepper, and perhaps a hint of nutmeg.

Fresh mixed green garden lettuce salad with mandarine orange slices, slivered almonds, chives and Balsamic/olive oil Vinaigrette (secret ingredient 1 teaspoon sugar and 1 clove garlic)

Green Bean side dish (still thinking about this one)

Carrot/Pineapple Salad (this would be new for us)

Munchies with be a variety of sliced cheese, Brie, pepper salami with round multi-grain crackers, globe grapes, mixed olives and some chilled Mascato white wine.

Tiramisu ~ Christmas cookies and decaf coffee or expresso.

What are you planning for your family this year? I've not made a ham in years and years so this will be a bit different for us. Next year we going vegan so all will be different again. We just may do a spinach quiche and romaine salad for 2010 and keep it simple.
Aloha, thank you, do jeh, toda, arigato, merci, grazie, salamat po, gracias, tack, sukria, danke schoen, kiitos, dank u, mahalo nui loa
