    We’ll be doing the traditional turkey, stuffing, mashed potatos meal.

    Hi Jen,
    I am a follower! We will be having a big brunch on Christmas and then it’s kind of a hunt and forage thing for the rest of the day. I sent the card to three different names and then it stopped letting me. I’ll try again…what a good thing. And thanks for the chance!

    I’d like to have a Thanksgiving-type turkey dinner for Christmas. But I’m not cooking this year, so it’s up to my mom or mother-in-law (and I can’t complain, since they’re doing all the work!). I’d guess we’ll have either lasagna or ham.

    Usually we have a soup supper Christmas Eve, so my mom likes to take a laid-back approach for Christmas Dinner. We usually make some chicken strips or ham, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole and of course, left overs from the night before.

    I am a follower! Usually we have the whole ordeal on lunch…Chicken and Dumplings, turkey and dressing and then all the sides to go with it. Yummy!

    Maria says:

    I am a friend already! I don’t know what we will eat, but something tasty I am sure:) Maybe soup, I am on a soup kick w/homemade bread, a good salad, and of course a sweet treat!

    Jessica says:

    For Christmas dinner this year I will be cooking a beef tenderloin and scalloped potatoes 🙂

  12. 12
    Megan says:

    Christmas dinner is usually really laid back (so that food doesn’t detract from the toys!), something like soup and sandwiches probably.

    Janelle says:

    I don’t “follow” but I am already a subscriber in Google Reader, which is just as good. I want ham for Christmas dinner this year — it’s already cooked and glazed, and all I have to do is warm it up!

    Mom24 says:

    I’d love to eat a standing rib roast, but it’s not going to happen. 😉

    Aimee Stevenson says:

    We usually have our traditional Ham dinner on Christmas Eve, and just snacks on Christmas day, so I would love to eat any of the desserts posted, they always look so perfect!

    Nutmeg Nanny says:

    Funny enough we never have Christmas dinner. We do a huge Christmas breakfast. A full spread of everything that makes breakfast awesome. Usually for Christmas evening we end up eating soup or pizza 🙂

    Aimee says:

    I posted the link on Facebook as well, I hope people will send the e-cards and help the needy. Thanks for this giveaway, it’s a great one!

    Josanna Hansen says:

    I would love to eat prime rib, but with little kids we will probably eat something they like, such as chicken pillows and mashed potatoes.

    Thanks for letting me help feed America! That’s awesome.
    For Christmas dinner, we always have a typical Thanksgiving dinner, because who doesn’t want to eat that more than once?! We also stuff ourselves ALL day on the best appetizers and sweets out there!

  26. 26
    Melissa says:

    Ham, Mashed potaotes, green bean casserole, potato salad, squash casserole, and all kinds of sweet treats. I will be making the Crunchy Reeses bars for my family, they were so good!

    We always eat a Christmas Breakfast actually (I assume this can count as well?). 🙂 We have homemade waffles on my mom’s heart shaped waffle iron, sausage, eggs, scrapple, bacon (for those who don’t like the other meat), fruit, and sometimes cinnamon rolls! 😀 This is the only meal we have all day, we eat Christmas candy and other snacks and cookies and a veggie tray later. 😉 Yum!

    Katie Dayton says:

    On Christmas day we start of with sausage and mushroom souffle. Then for dinner we have a ham and a turkey complete with a full on Christmas spread. The best part? My grandma puts cream in her mashed potatoes. So fattening, but so good.

  47. 47
    Marie says:

    I’m a follower, and we’re actually a Christmas Breakfast family. We’ll be eating a sampling of breakfast cake, biscuits and gravy, turkey sausage, Orange juice, eggs, and candy from the stockings:)

    Suzanne says:

    I sent an e-card and will send more later if it lets me. What a neat idea and awesome opportunity to help (doesn’t get much easier than that).

    I am a follower.

    Hmmm, we haven’t decided for sure about Christmas. But, we did at least decide to do something other than turkey and stuffing (I can’t handle another Thanksgiving-type dinner at this point). So, we will probably go Italian or Mexican.
