Still don't know what to do about Christmas dinner? If the idea of roasting another turkey (didn't we just do that?) or a honeybaked ham sounds less than appealing, get out of the kitchen and indulge in one of these epic Christmas dinners. Take advantage of this time of year when you can dress up in sparkles and fur and feast like a king or queen. Various locations.

If all of this rain, wind, and chill has you craving something to warm you up, you won't be disappointed by one of these steamy, hearty bowls of stew. Your mama's beef stew it is not, but it's possibly even better.
