Cooking for a very small group at Christmas- any suggestions?

Our little Christmas party has sadly shrunk to three people (possibly a fourth, not counting on it)- due to illness and many other factors. It's kind of taken the excitment out of the big meal for me- I was planning to do a big slow-beer-braised brisket, but that is WAY too much for us. Can you recommend a happy, festive meal for three that won't leave us with a week's worth of leftovers? I was considering Cornish hens, but I did make them recently for a little holiday gathering. Hubby dislikes most seafood, so mainly looking at meat or poultry. I've already ordered our dessert - bouche de noel- feeds 6-8 so we'll be overboard on that (cranky french bakery that doesn't take back orders- even garuntees with credit card!) Merry Christmas to all- I wish everyone a fatastic holiday with every tasty treat you desire!
