Christmas is the one time for my hubby to "eat like other people". I'm not a stickler and he likes to keep the old family traditions. My girls (4 of them) are rigid and nothing ever, EVER changes for their Xmas or Thanksgiving menus. I always have something for me or modify a recipe.

Christmas Eve- tamales (pork, chicken and green chile), cheese and spinach enchiladas, queso and chips
Christmas Day- crawfish/seafood pasta casserole (I use Dreamfields which doesn't affect me and they don't know the difference), Caesar salad, French bread

Usually on Christmas Eve, I will eat 2 tamales and 2 enchiladas and on Christmas I can eat the pasta and salad, no bread. Best of all, there are little or no leftovers and we are back on track 12/26. Seldom, if ever, do we have desserts, so no temptation there

We are having a Christmas bbq, as we are having others over & e are offering bread and potatoes etc, but it means we can be low carb, without having any hassle.

We are doing venison liver pate to start, venison steak, salmon, sausages, burgers, salad, sprouts a verde, and lots of other goodness which can be as low carb as we need!

The only thing to worry about is the cold and chance of it raining - which being the UK will be very high!

Shelby'snana - would you mind sharing your recipe for the "meatballs with spicy sauce"?

Also, what is Wassail?

(sorry to thread jack)

Sure. I just make small meatballs with hamb meat,onion pwd, garlic salt, salt, pepper, bread crumbs, egg and maybe a little catsup. I bake them on a cookie sheet ( with foil under for easy cleanup) .

On the stove, heat up chili sauce ( found in store near cocktail sauce) and a few tsp of grape jelly and red pepper flakes. Heat until mixed well. May need 1 or 2 bottles of sauce depending on how many meatballs you need to coat

I put this all in the crockpot on low and let them simmer. Everyone loves them and super easy since you can cook the meatballs ahead.

Wassail is an old spiced cider recipe that also goes in the crockpot:

2 qts apple cider
1 qt orange juice
1/4 c honey
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 pkd or less of mulled cider spices ( I don't do this )
1/3 handful of red hot candy
2-3 cinnamon sticks
1 orange with whole cloves stuck all over it and then sliced to float in the cider

Let simmer at least one hour before serving. Your house will smell amazing !!
I make this every year .....

Wow, that Wassail sounds delicious and I can't wait for the aroma to fill my home!'

Off to the store for ground beef for the meatballs.

PS: Shelby is adorable
