Default Holiday dinner suggestions

Hello ~

I am cooking a Christmas dinner to take to my parents, who live 100 miles away. I don't want to do anything traditional, but instead of planning the menu based on what I want to sample while I'm cooking, I'm planning a menu based on healthy, sane, eating so I don't fall off the wagon.

Does anyone have any proven recipes for food, a little on the festive side, but nontraditional? I'm thinking quiche, soup, salad, something like that.

I'm pretty open, though, so a meat dish with sides would be welcome too. I've been reading the South Beach book and recipes and it looks like an excellent plan. Made a soup last night that was delicious and suitable for Phase I, but it's a pretty rustic soup that I wouldn't want to repeat for Christmas.

Thanks !
