Seafood for the Holidays!

Since we're on the topic of food and holiday eating, I'm sure most of you already have plans for your family's Christmas dinner. Mum won't be coming home for the holidays this year (it sucks, I know), so we'll be missing her and her signature dishes come Christmas Day.

It's a good thing, though, that my siblings and I know how to cook. My sister, who once owned a small Italian restaurant, can whip up a storm in the kitchen. Pasta dishes are her forte, but she can cook some mean Mediterranean dishes, too. My brother, on the other hand, can cook some simple Filipino dishes (think adobo and sinigang). But wait 'til you taste his tiramisu. They're to die for, I tell you, and this dessert used to be the best-seller in my sister's restaurant.

Now the three of us haven't really finalized our Christmas dinner menu. We'll be having pasta and tiramisu, that's for sure. And there's the traditional holiday ham, which I'm certain most of you will have on your menus, too.
Black Tiger Prawns, peeled, tail on.
I'm thinking of adding seafood to our menu this year, say stuffed crabs or pan-fried tiger prawns. I don't even have to worry about the ingredients or the preparation, since I can do seafood order online, and have these restaurant-quality dishes delivered in time for Christmas dinner. I'm sure my siblings won't have qualms since they love seafood dishes, too.

How 'bout you? What's on your menu?

Oh, that sounds yummy! I've never had seafood for Christmas, but I would so totally love that! Maybe we should try it sometime...

We will be having the ham, a turkey, and the usual "southern American" food: mashed potatoes w/gravy, green bean casserole, broccoli casserole and the yummy pies (pumpkin, peanut butter)...and probably more than I can list! I love Christmas =)

With 9 different cooks on my Mothers side we ALWAYS have a verity, we've had a seafood salad that was heavenly one year-just remember lots of ice if the seafood is a chilled dish =)

Oh how wonderful- seafood!!! We have a few cooks in our family as well and I am NOT one of them. I guess that's why I am always asked to bring the veggie platter. No one cuts veggies better than me. ;)

Wow, that looks delicious! There is never a wrong time for seafood! My bunch wants the traditional ham and turkey for Christmas, but I'm thinking Easter will be a shrimp holiday this year ;)

Seafood Christmas sounds yummy! We have my husband's parents coming in, so my mother-in-law will likely cook up something delicious for us. One of these days I'm going to have to buck up and attempt to cook a turkey, just for practice. But not yet!
