Inexpensive Christmas dinner for 8, but NOT turkey

cosmogrrl | Dec 7, 2012 08:34 PM

I'm hosting the Orphan's Christmas this year, where all my friends (who have not gone home) come over to celebrate the day.

I'm pretty broke this year and need a main dish. I really don't like turkey, although I can get it fairly cheap.

In the past I have made turkey, beef Wellington, and ham. I may do ham again if I can find a good deal on it, I did manage to find it at $.49 a lb. a Fresh and Easy dur Thanksgiving.

I have access to TJ's, and Costco.

My friends will be bringing the booze and maybe some desserts.

There aren't any limits as far as allergies, and no vegetarians, so almost anything would work. I just need it to be inexpensive, tasty, and worthy of a Christmas dinner.
