Son had wisdom teeth out - need Christmas Eve meal ideas

9 years ago

Hi everyone. I'm looking for ideas for Christmas Eve dinner for 7 people. My son just had his wisdom teeth out yesterday, and I'm sure he'll be back to eating normal food by Tuesday, but I want to make sure everything is soft enough and easy to chew that it won't be a problem.

We'll be eating after we go to church, so I need something that can be prepared ahead and quickly cooked, since we'll be starving after church. It doesn't need to be fancy, but I'd like something a little special.

The past few years, we've had fondue (cheese course, meat course, and chocolate). We're avoid that because FIL recently confessed that he doesn't like fondue (oops!).

My other idea was salmon -- poached, perhaps -- but my youngest two kids don't like salmon. Normally when they don't like an entree, I just let them fill up on veggies and sides, but it's Christmas, so I'd like to make something that everyone will enjoy.

We're having ham on Christmas, so that's out. Maybe lasagna?

Thanks for your suggestions!
