Check out all of the amazing food we ate over the holidays ... how I am not 15 pounds heavier can only be attributed to Pickle and his non-stop energy (and dancing!). We had loads of fun, with many games of cribbage played, many Tom and Jerry's imbibed and a lot of delicious food eaten.
Here are the menus, with links to some of the recipes:
Christmas Eve: my sister Heather cooked up quite the feast that included lasagne bolonese and wild mushroom lasagne (not pictured) and a delicious salad of mixed greens, gorgonzola, cranberries and toasted walnuts.
Christmas Day: my mom made an amazing meal that included herb-crusted beef tenderloin with a creamy horseradish sauce, potato dauphinoise, roasted asparagus, brioche rolls and cranberry sauce.
And every meal ended with a delicious assortment of homemade cookies. Yum.
As you can tell, my whole family is kind of into food. My mom inspired all of her children to get their hands dirty in the kitchen and show their love via the dinner table. It's the best gift we ever received.
Happy eating and entertaining! -s.
