Dinner Ideas Needed...help!

Ok guys...here's my tall order....

I need some ideas on what I can do for dinner on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Here's the kicker...I don't want to have to cook. I usually make a nice dinner on Christmas, but I just don't think I can do it this year. I know some of you have got to have some great ideas! Please share...Please!

I've heard Honey Baked Ham will do precooked hams for you. Or try one of the grocery stores for their complete dinners...turkey or ham.

Pies from Village Inn or Marie's!

Pick up as much precooked food as you can!

Also, my family likes to have sandwich/salad/potato bar. We just basically pile a ton of food on the table, and let everyone put it together however they like. Most of it takes little prep, and everyone gets exactly what they like!

We do tamales, that way you can eat whenever you are hungry. Or pozole (mexican soup). Don't worry about it, as long as there is food, they will be happy!

Last year, I had a fantastic dinner planned. Turkey breast, mashed potatoes, the works!

Christmas morning came and we had fun playing with all our new games and watching movies all day long. Around 5:30 I said to myself, "Oops! I guess I should've put the turkey in awhile ago!"

Lucky we had some tortillas and a can of beans in the pantry.

my family has started a new tradition in the past several years. we get a stouffers frozen lasagna (meat or veggie, or both!), have salad and italian bread with it. very easy and everyone enjoys it!

i say, get one of those papa murphy's or papa johns pizzas that you take home and cook and have pizza and rootbeer floats this year.... everyone likes it, and it's easy clean up lol... who is going to complain?

I'm using the crock for Kielbasa and will make a pan of kraut separate for Kasia and myself. (The other two party poopers can have veggies with their kraut.)

Last year we had spaghetti.
