Christmas dinner on the cheap AND easy…

Christmas dinner on the cheap AND easy…

Ok, so my partner's family is coming over for Christmas dinner this year again. Last year, I made a chili and they loved it. Just don't know what to make this year... thought about the Gypsy soup mentioned earlier, but I think I want to do a little more of a "stick to your ribs" meal. I saw, on one of the morning shows this morning, how to make roasted Cornish game hens... looked GOOD, but I don't know if that would be expensive... Any ideas? Thanks!
