Yum! One of my favorite meals of the year is our Christmas Day dinner. This year I'm trying a couple of new appetizers and cocktails, as well as making some old standbys that we love. Dad has generously provided us with an enormous tenderloin, which I prefer to more turkey. Can't wait for Friday!
Here's the plan:
Cocktails & Appetizers -
Apple & Thyme Martinis (these sound awesome!)
Raspberry Bellinis (Dad loves)
Pecorino CrackersRed Pepper Cheesecake
Whole Wheat Pita Triangles
Cheese tray - Havarti with Dill, Brie, Roomkaas (Gouda) and Pepper Jack
Red and Green Apple Slices
Garlic Smashed Potatoes
Broccoli with Lemon Zest
Green Salad (not sure on recipe yet)
Garlic & Sundried Tomato Corn Muffins
Biscuits & Honey Butter
Derby Pie, Vanilla Ice Cream
Pumpkin Pie Dessert Squares
My MIL's Coconut Cake
For the first time in years, I've got the whole week off. Which means I've got half a chance of getting most of this made, LOL! I'm so excited!
After eating this I'm pretty sure we won't need to eat for several days. But just in case, I'm planning breakfast casserole, herbed citrus fruit salad and olive oil muffins for breakfast over the weekend. Yum!!
Let me know what's on your menu!
The Calm Before the Earplugs - Thank you all for your support yesterday. I feel much more buoyed and equipped to face the challenge before me tonight. I was in a deep struggle in my life...
