We use to have a Christmas Turkey years ago, and then on Thanksgiving of 86, we all came down with Salmonelle poisening, and that ended a 100 year Christmas tradition for my family. Needless to day I was pretty honked off, so this year, I am revitalizing that old and IMHO sacred tradition. I stay home for Christmas Eve, and visit my brothers and sisters on Christmas Day. There fore, my Christmas Eve dinner is going to be turkey with all the trimmings, and then the next day, Christmas eve, I'll have Prime Rib with my brothers and Sisters.
Incidently, Turkey and Prime Rib of Beef is THE Christmas Traditional meal for a lot of people.
