Oh I just thought of something I absolutely loved as a kid! Auntie used to make a chipped beef/cream cheese ball with crackers!!! :) Where the heck do you get chipped beef though?

I found chipped beef in a jar around the canned meats, tuna, chicken, spam, etc.

I'm doing prime rib on Christmas day, but for my mom's on Christmas Eve:

veggie tray
stuffed mushrooms
buffalo chicken dip
taco dip
shrimp cocktail
spicy meatballs in sauce

My big do is tonight. Christmas Eve I'll be here alone--the kids are all doing in-law things. Christmas Day I go to my MIL's and so do all my kids.
So tonight I'm serving:

Olive cheese puffs
Mushroom petite turnovers
garlic stuffed olives
wasabi nuts
pomegranate martinis

Beef tenderloin
stuffed potato casserole
spinach/cheese/bacon casserole
green beans
salad
rolls
a nice zinfandel

birthday cake
homemade bourbon balls
homemade peanut butter fudge
a very interesting port for a dessert wine.

Not sure what we'll have Christmas Eve, it's just DH and I. Maybe steak? Christmas Day brunch with my family (the Jews!) we'll have a Honey Baked Ham (really kosher, I know), dijon mustard, rolls for making sammies, scrambled eggs with herb Boursin cheese, cornichons, 7 layer Jello mould (my mom is famous for it!), mixed green salad and homemade cinnamon rolls.

They are pretty easy, and freeze very well.
2 cups grated cheddar, 1/2 cup softened butter, 1 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon paprika. Blend cheese & butter. Stir in flour, salt, paprika. Mix well. Wrap 1 teaspoon around olives. Arrange on a baking sheet and freeze. Store in a ziplock plastic bag.
Bake 15 minutes at 400.

And Dweck, come on over--I'll fix you a pomegranate martini any time!
