    I think for Christmas dinner, I would love to have a hearty lamb dish and some Ekekiel stuffing…plus, a ton of veggies!

    What a generous giveaway from Kraft and you!
    If my sweet husband gets a Christmas bonus we will have Prime Rib! If not we will have lasagna, maybe?
    Whatever it is it will be great as long as we are with family!

    Just sent an e card, great idea! We don’t celebrate Christmas so we’ll be just having a regular dinner. Hopefully something delicious!!

    A family tradition for Christmas dinner for the last for years is “letting” my husband buy a Honeybaked ham.

    I love that Kraft program! I actually don’t know what I’ll be eating for Christmas. My family has always done a traditional Scandinavian dinner, but the Swedish deli we go to for most of the unique foods went out of business, and we haven’t been able to find a good substitute so far. My dad called a number he found online over the weekend, which we think was the old owner’s home phone number (!), and he offered to order things if we couldn’t find them anywhere else, but I don’t know if we’ll actually do that.

    Melissa says:

    I’m a new follower- love this idea!

    On Christmas I will be having ham, potatoes, and lots of yummy other sides!

    Stacy says:

    I just sent out 6, I’ll send more in a few. What a great and easy way to help!!
    I already follow you…my waist line hates you but my taste buds love you!

    We always have prime rib for Christmas dinner, I’m not sure what sides we’re doing this year but the main dish has been the same since I was a kid 🙂

    Sara says:

    I’m a follower!

    Love your blog, and this giveaway! I just sent a few ecards, and I’ll probably send about 100 to my own email adress, just for the cause.

    …But, I wouldn’t mind a gift basket, either.

    Sara says:

    I’m totally bad with tech stuff in that field, so I haven’t tweeted it since I don’t have an account. But trust me, I love your blog, and the cause, so I would if I could! 😉

    Karina says:

    Great cause, I am happy to be a part! I will be working on Christmas so I’ll be indulging in a potluck.. but I WISH I was home enjoying dinner with my family, ham, mashed potatoes, carrots, and lots of yummy desserts!

    Prime rib… MMMmmm! I haven’t decided on the side dishes yet… maybe twice baked potatoes. Any ideas for me?

  29. 79
    Pieper says:

    We will be eating the traditional ham (possibly turkey), rebaked potatoes, watergate salad, homemade rolls, swt potatoes, …etc etc!! I am so excited- especially since it may be the last one with our grandparents. Merry Christmas everyone! Thanks for this giveaway!

    Melissa Knodell says:

    We will have tamales, chili, rice, pork roast, potato salad and broccoli salad on Christmas day at my Mom’s house.

    Mary says:

    I am looking forward to all the yummy side dishes for Christmas, but our tradition is homemade benets for Christmas Eve.

  32. 82
    Sandy says:

    We do the traditional lunch…my brother fries the turkey, we have honey ham, sweet potatoes, corn casserole, field peas or butterbeans, dressing w/ gravy + too many desserts to name! YUM.

  33. 83
    Hannah says:

    I will be having the traditional turkey dinner but I am going to try pumpkin praline pie for desert this year. Oh, and I am now a foodie friend!

    It will just be my husband and 18 month for Christmas this year and I think I’m going to make a turkey and possibly try to make sweet potatoes. I’ve never made them before!

    Krista says:

    Hi Jenny!
    I sent some cards, I’m already a follower, and I’ll post the link on facebook as soon as I sign off here.

    Usually for Christmas dinner I’m having a big ol’ seafood feast at my grandma’s house complete with lobster and crab legs. This year, my husband and I have decided not to travel with the kiddos, so we’re having hot wings. (I’m getting him a fryer for Christmas and we’ll try it out that night).

    Love this giveaway…it’s good for everyone!

    Melissa says:

    melissa l. says:

    I sent some of those ecards & I’m a foodie friend already & for Christmas my husband wants to be in charge of making most of the food. He’s a Food Network junkie. I’m in charge of the chocolate fountain. I know we’re also doing a Christmas Eve potluck breakfast with family. Can’t wait to eat all the yummy food.

    I’m making carrot & parsnip latkes for the first night of Chanukah!
