Christmas Dinner Ideas? Special circumstances!

Because of the giant tree that crashed through our home just before Thanksgiving, we will not be having company for Christmas this year. We'll roast a turkey a few days after Christmas, but not one just for the two of us on Christmas Day.

We've just finished up leftover ham from the freezer, so ham is out for awhile. I really want to make this a special meal, so I'm looking for non-turkey and non-ham ideas for Christmas dinner for two. Low carb, of course!

I know that dessert will be Cranberry Surprise Pie... my personal favorite!

Thanks for any help you can offer.

How do you stuff yours? I'd like to make it for New Years, but I'm not sure what to stuff it with. I usually do crackers, but obviously that isn't low carb.

I mix cream cheese and lobster and chopped onion and chopped celery and add in a little bit of crushed pork rinds. it is very good. and i also add in some finly chopped bacon. kind of like the poppers stuffing.

We always have prime rib for Christmas dinner (actually it's rib-eye roast because it's not "prime" grade, but it's fantastic). Traditionally, sides are mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese (NOT the box), glazed carrots and petite green beans with butter and shredded parmesan.

Thank you all for the ideas! We may do a small prime rib, if I can find one. Our last day to go off-island and our last shopping day before Christmas will be tomorrow.

That sounds really good. I love anything with cream cheese. I will include this in my Christmas dinner list, just in time for my last minute shopping for ingredients.

Rib Roast FTW!

I'll be having steamed prawns dunked in coconut oil instead of butter, rib roast, Parmesan and mascarpone oopsie rolls (which I will pretend are Yorkshire puddings), and mushrooms roasted in rendered beef fat.

It shall be fabulous.

Ummmmm! Mascarpone oopsies! Yes, I would pretend they were Yorkshire puddings!

We didn't buy a rib roast or prime rib. Guess we're having steak. Also bought scallops and will fry them up with bacon. I guess we'll have salad, too.

With all the work going on in the house (sheet-rocking, mudding, taping, hammering, etc.) everything is such a mess. I'm having a difficult time keeping up with everything. DD and boyfriend are coming several days early, so will be here for Christmas dinner after all. I'm moving "our" dinner to Christmas eve and coming up with something else for Chritmas dinner since they don't eat steak and shopping is very limited here.

Well, yes. But my plan includes eating our family's traditional foods two meals a year: Thanksgiving and Christmas And I use dreamfields for the macaroni.
