Christmas Alone Piggyback- food

What are you planning on eating? My go-to junk food is take out, and pretty much everywhere is closed or only offering a special Christmas style meal- family sized, of course . I need some inspiration for what I want to get if I'm just going to the store.

I bought frozen lasagne for dh and I. I donít know if you like Chinese, but many Chinese restaurants are open on Christmas. We will do Chinese on New Yearís Eve or day because I wonít cook.

Not alone but just DH and myself. We thought of stuff we like but don't usually buy or at least not often. Shrimp, chips & dip, salami, cashews.

It is suppose to be rainy 1-2 inches and wind up to 50 mph. Had planned to pick up Chinese food. But are getting Chinese for lunch tomorrow and will snack Christmas Day.

You can always freeze the leftovers.

Just reminded myself of my first holiday alone. I joined the army and spent my first holiday in South Korean with no real friends or family. I cooked myself ragu spaghetti in a crock pt and cries through my meal. This was back before computers, and phone calls were expensive. No meal after that was eve so lonely.

Puts things a little in perspective for me. I came from a close family that did every holiday together. About 50 people to just me in a barracks room.

Just a few minutes ago I was wondering what I might make for myself that would be easy yet a bit more special. Glad you started this thread Haley!

We're picking up a "holiday" meal from a local restaurant. It will be ready to just heat and eat on Christmas Day. DH and I are both getting pretty tired of cooking so we're taking the day off.

I guess it depends on whether you want a traditional type meal and the types of restaurants available in your area....but it seems to me that Iíd eat whatever I darn well pleased!
Itís DD and I but my ovens been weird so I adored food from Boston Market. Iíll pick it up tomorrow, supplement it with sides from the grocery store and enjoy dessert. I think it I werenít in the mood for a traditional meal (they had turkey, ham and prime rib), I might order take out from my favorite restaurant and reheat the next day

Itís just me. I considered ordering something special, but couldnít find anything that sounded tasty. Maybe Iíll bake a potato and cook some chicken. Or maybe Iíll skip the whole thing. Iím leaning to the latter.

My family and I have gotten Chinese food for several past holidays. If I was alone, I'd get it this time from my favorite (Chinese) restaurant.

For Christmas when I am alone I make myself a NY strip steak, baked potato and salad. It doesn't take long and it helps me feel in a festive mood.

We just hit Costco right before closing - so it wasn't too crowded. We bought the meatloaf/mashed potato premade meal for Christmas Day. On Christmas Eve we're having soup and French bread. We also bought a dessert (wanted their new Yule Log because I'd heard the leftovers would freeze well but they were out so we bought Tuxedo Chocolate Mousse Cake) that we'll eat over several days. Everything was Costco size so we'll be eating for several days and freezing some leftovers.

Thanks for the posts. I had Culver's for lunch today and bought all of the fixings for nachos from the store. Just sounded good . For tomorrow I bought cinnamon rolls for the morning and stuff for chili cheese coneys for later in the day. I had coneys on Thanksgiving too- I'm just not super creative I guess.
