Is this for Christmas Day? If it is, enjoy the time with your family. If you haven't made the coconut rice before, believe me you will love it!

For Christmas we're having:

Surf & Turf--small lobster tail and small filet mignon
Caesar salad (I'm trying my hand with the dressing)
Chicago hard rolls
Peppermint ice cream

For breakfast we're having fried pork tenderloin, cut very thin, pounded and rolled in flour mixture, fried brown on both sides and steamed until it is fork tender. DS does this. Then we'll have sausage gravy and biscuits,my contribution, fried sweet potatoes (a family thing)DD#2 and various homemade jams, jellies or apple sauce.

For lunch, or whatever you call a middle of the afternoon meal, it's beef tenderloin, gruyere potatoes, both by DD#3, green beans, me, green salad DD#2, rolls and chocolate pie, DDinlaw, and I'm not sure what Sister in law is bringing. I have a bunch of cookies in the freezer from my open house so that will fill in the gaps.

We won't go hungry!

We did our gift giving last night, but our 2 younger ones still want to come over for part of the day~~DS's wife is a nurse so she has a regular work day~~if he comes for breakfast it will be scrabbled eggs with ham from last night and hash browns~~~if he stays for lunch it will just be grilled smoked sausages in buns and left over veggies/dip and chips. DD#2 and her BF are coming late afternoon, her BF will be making his homemade pizza 3-4 different kinds;) Hoping that with everyone coming by we will get rid of alot of our left overs~~

We're staying home, and decided that we want ribs. But we each want a different starch, so we're also having fresh-baked bread, homemade mashed potatoes, and rice pilaf!

All of your breakfasts and dinners sound great!

For breakfast we had a fresh fruit salad and hash brown quiche with sausage, green and red peppers and onion. For dinner we usually always have stuffed beef tenderloin, twice baked potatoes and luxe peas and celery. This is a different year, just three of us and I love, love, love ham so DH said then have ham. (He isn't crazy about ham but after all these years, it's my turn) We will be having baked ham with a honey glaze, scalloped potatoes, broccoli casserole corn casserole and apple pie. Everyone's dinner sounds great.
