Hi I wonder what are you planning to have, and whether there are some lovely paleo recipes that you would suggest for Christmas Eve

I plan on eating roasted turkey and veggies and leaving the stuffing for my family. Also, I'm making coconut macaroons as my own personal dessert. But I'm not in charge of the family meal. If I were...

I'd check out the answers to these questions:

  1. A Paleo Thanksgiving?
  2. Paleo Thanksgiving Stuffing?

Also, I'd read through these links I gathered a few weeks ago:

Hope this helps! :)

Oh, yes! I'm jewish but I fantasize about making a Christmas dinner! Standing Rib Roast smothered in butter, chopped garlic, rosemary, kosher salt, and pepper. Leaks braised in chicken stock, lemon zest, and seasoned with salt and pepper. Mashed sweet potatoes (mix in some heavy cream, crumbled bacon, and green onions). Mesculin salad with red onions, mandarin oranges, and a home made olive oil, freshly squeezed orange,and black pepper dressing.

Oh man, i want to have a Christmas dinner! Chanukah at my house consisted of our entire family at my house, me cooking for days, and the only thing i tasted was my brisket.

SEAFOOD comprising of oysters, salmon, mussels and Terrine de la Mer for Christmas Eve (traditional french).

GOOSE with gooseberry sauce on Christmas Day with CHRISTMAS PUDDING and BRANDY BUTTER for dessert or DARK CHOCOLATE YULE LOG.

JUGGED HARE with cranberry sauce for Boxing Day with Jamie Oliver's PANETTONE BOMB with ice cream and chocolate (for the children :)).

Large HAM which can be carved and served up until New Year's Day.

Melton Mowbray PORK PIES made with lard and pig's trotter jelly, MINCE PIES made with lard and MULLED WINE (all available throughout the Christmas season).

YUM. Can always be eaten STRICTLY Paleo of course, by omitting the desserts.

Not quite "Christmas", but tonight we made the P, B, and J from Paleo Comfort Foods (pork loin roast stuffed with an apple mixture, rolled up, cooked, and topped with a nut butter sauce. We topped ours with bacon prior to cooking, too) and called it our Yule Log.

Thanksgiving for us was a rack of lamb and gluten-free pumpkin pie (which made us sugar-phobes sick, shoulda known better). I'm thinking Christmas will be duck. It's just the two of us and we're traveling immediately afterward, so I don't want 10 lbs of leftovers. I think we'll it stew in a red wine sauce in the slow cooker. Did that for a birthday last year and it was amazing. For dessert, being a special occasion and all, I might buy a kitchen torch and try creme brulee. I have a recipe that uses a smallish amount of sugar per serving, especially considering the amount of cream involved.

Probably gonna do what we did last year - lovely garlicky standing rib roast, green beans with butter and almonds, colorful salad with olive oil dressing, mashed potatoes with as much butter as they can hold, and a cinnamony apple compote. I'd love to do roasted brussels sprouts with bacon grease instead of the green beans, but I got outvoted. :)

Sorry, I just realized you wanted a dinner recipe. This chicken is incredibly easy to make and has a wonderful taste.

Christmas Eve I am buying a load of tiger prawns (unskinned with heads, tails and all), then just throwing them in a really hot oiled wok with dried chilly-flakes and rock salt. The idea is to almost burn their skins, then throw them into a bowl with a big squeeze of lemon juice and devour!

The best bit is to suck the crispy chilly toasted skins before ripping them apart and eating their insides. Super messy food, but just superb to share.

We're not doing a totally paleo dinner, but there are certainly a lot of paleo elements. I'm doing a roast duck & some ham, an apple & butternut squash soup, mashed potatoes, balsamic roasted brussels sprouts, baked beans (for the vegetarian at the table, but made from scratch with soaked beans), and homemade cranberry sauce. And pie. :-)

The one recipe I'd wholeheartedly recommend would be the brussels sprouts. Just take a bunch of them, quarter, toss with a few glugs of balsalmic vinegar, a few glugs of olive oil and some salt & pepper, dump onto a cookie sheet or roasting pan and throw them in the oven to roast with the meat for about 30-40 minutes, stiring them halfway through.

How about a roasted turkey, sage stuffing, mulled cranberry sauce, apple crumble and some cut-out cookies? And how about if they're all Paleo? Here are my Paleo recipes for Christmas dinner. Enjoy! http://angiessuburbanoasis.blogspot.com/2011/12/paleoprimal-christmas-recipes.html
