Hot rolls with butter, and a fruit salad like ambrosia.

Ambrosia:

Ingredients:

* 1 cup orange juice
* 3 medium oranges, peeled and sectioned
* 1 can (8 ounces) pineapple chunks, undrained
* 1/2 cup seedless red grapes, halved
* 1/2 cup shredded coconut
* 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preparation:
Combine juice, orange sections, pineapple, and grapes, stirring gently to blend. Refrigerate until serving time. Fold in coconut and pecans just before serving.
This Ambrosia Recipe serves 6.


I make a sweeter version (almost like a dessert) with sour cream and either sugar or honey, and I substitute apples for pineapple since I don't really like pineapple.

I don't make it with cool whip, but I guess you could.

Are you paying for all of this food?


message 5: by Lobstergirl, el principe (new)

Lobstergirl | 24360 comments Mod
Wow, that's very nice of you.

Rebecca White (rebecca_white) | 1028 comments I'm making ham too, and with it mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, green beans (slow southern cooked), carrots, rolls, fried apples, and two pies.

Jonathan Lopez | 4728 comments Two pies?!?

What kind?

Well, it's a skeleton crew. How much will they really be eating? Maybe set a bowl of calcium supplements on the side.


message 9: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Lopez | 4728 comments That sounds great, Misha.

It sounds extremely delicious, all of it. In my family we're still trying to decide whose house to eat at. (There is some bickering going on, I'm not going to mention any names but the people know who they are.) Last year we were in the grocery store at 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve.

Jonathan Lopez | 4728 comments At that point, it's time to give up and join Elena Kagan's family at the Chinese restaurant. And it sounds like they have fun...

Many are the times I would rather have been at the Chinese restaurant with the Jews. But we I have to head straight home from the grocery and start cooking.


message 13: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Lopez | 4728 comments Your family makes you do all of the cooking? Seems unfair.

Félix (habitseven) Strike!

Well, makes is a strong word. It's more like I'm the only one who knows how to cook anything (and I'm no great cook). If I didn't do any cooking it would either be takeout, or catered.


message 16: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Lopez | 4728 comments Well there's a lot to be said for catering...

Leslie (lesslie) Mash potatoes and gravy are very nice with ham!

I like applesauce and potatoes au gratin with mine. And yellow mustard, please.


message 19: by Janice (new)

Janice (jamasc) Scalped potatoes go well with ham. Is Rachel Ray the new Martha Stewart?


message 20: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) I usually peel my potatoes.


message 21: by Brittomart (new)

Brittomart Her plump behind wishes she was the new Martha Stewart.

Whenever I see the title of this thread, I think it says, "What do you do to serve Him?"

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17346 comments Mod
I like Rachel Ray fine. But I prefer Alton Brown.


message 23: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Rachel's husky voice grates on me.

I like it when people mock her by grabbing armfuls and heaping all the food from a shelf to walk 1 foot across a room to the counter.

Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) Nm. I didn't like that pic.

Gonna do the one thing Britt hates and edit it out.

Chocolate meringue and grasshopper - you know, creme de menthe, and "white chocolate" in a chocolate crust.

For the chocolate meringue, we've always been attached to the recipe from the 1953 Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. It's like the one in the current Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, only with more butter and eggs! Mmmmmm!

Rebecca White (rebecca_white) | 1028 comments Oh, and family tradition says baste the ham in Coca Cola!

I heard you Larry, scalping of a potato seems harsh to me.

Joking aside, ham and taters are great!


message 34: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Did you mean: tatars?

I went to Target last night with Leah just to watch the spectacle.

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments My twelve year and I went to an outdoor mall, too! We had fun, actually, walking through the crowds.


message 38: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca White (rebecca_white) | 1028 comments I don't mind Rachael Ray as a person/celebrity at all, but I don't find her cookbooks very interesting.

Scout (goodreadscomscout) | 3447 comments Hope everything went well, Misha.

Saw this thread and want to share my Grandma Minna's potato recipe. It tastes great with honey-basted ham.

For four people, bake five large russet potatoes. Refrigerate them overnight. Next day, sautee some chopped onion in olive oil. Peel and chop the potatoes and put them, along with the onions, in a medium-sized pot over medium heat. Add half a stick of butter - or whatever you use. Add a small can of condensed milk, one teaspoon of sugar, and enough milk to make a soupy consistency. Salt and pepper as much as you like. Heat almost to a boil, turn off the burner and let sit for 30 minutes; then re-heat and add more milk if necessary. Potatoes should stir easily.

You're immortal as long as someone remembers you; reads what you've written or what's been written about you - or makes one of your recipes.

Hooray! I loved reading Misha's updates to her holiday meal, even if I didn't have time to chime in. Glad everything went swimmingly.


message 42: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Lopez | 4728 comments Misha, it's good to hear that your Christmas dinner was such a success. Your colleagues are lucky to have you.


message 43: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca White (rebecca_white) | 1028 comments Har har! What the coke does is probably done better by brown sugar, but Dad says do it, so I do it! Like watching the Cowboys every Thanksgiving - we just do it!

It was fun to catch up on the whole thread just now, and Misha, I'm glad it went well!

Glad it went well, Misha. No surprise, I was in Whole Foods until closing on Christmas Eve. It wasn't that much of a madhouse. Weirdly, there are a lot of items Whole Foods doesn't stock.
