It is great to experiment with new dishes around the holidays, but often, traditional is the way to go. Christmas dinner is one of the most important meals of the year. The family gathers together to reflect on the year’s triumphs and successes. Laughter fills the halls, and Grandpa tells stories about the “good old days” and regales, for the hundredth time, how he met Grandma. A traditional Christmas dinner would not be complete without a perfectly browned Roast Goose, a heaping dish of Oyster Dressing, puffy and light Yorkshire Pudding, and the promise of Plum Pudding at the end. Create unforgettable memories with this Perfect Christmas Dinner that the family will talk about for years to come.

I must say, I cooked a goose one year for Christmas, but never again! It was so greasy, we could barely eat it. Dickens may have written about it, but, it's turkey for us from now on!
