Comments: The Evolution of the Oddest Christmas Eve Dinner... EVER.

Christmas dinner in Texas is a lot less fuss. We just gorge on pork tamales (which, of course, have to be washed down with a beer or two).

Wow. We have church on Christmas Eve at 5 and we are helping watch little ones at 6:30. Since I know my kids can't wait to eat until 8pm I suppose I should think about what to feed them for dinner... Around 4pm. Seriously, why my church is having things so early this year is beyond me...

Don't forget 30 Dixie cups of Coke for each diner.

Please come over and cook at my house!

I don't know what we are having on Christmas Eve. One of my friends has a tradition of Christmas Eve tacos, but since I am making Christmas dinner, I don't want any work for Christmas Eve. We've had too much pizza lately, so that doesn't sound good. Got any suggestions?

It's a common misconception that the Three Magi arrived bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. They really brought frankincense, myrrh, and a big Crockpot full of cheese grits!

Let's hear it for Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar, especially the one carrying the cheese grits!

Whoa, those Italian Catholics are pretty serious! I was reared in a pretty serious (Irish) Catholic family...never heard of not being allowed meat on Christmas Eve!

But cheese grits...ahh, yes. YUMMY! Except we make Jalapeno Cheese grits!

Mmmm. Think I'll be seeing you for dinner.

I'm fairly certain I've never eaten a cheese grit. What am I missing?
