Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve was spent with my father's side of the family and a few friends. We had two appetizer's that were quite tasty... Crab Dip and Artichoke Dip - Artichoke was my favorite. It is always served so hot and I burn myself eating it every time... you would think I would learn! Salad was served dressed with a tangy vinaigrette, topped with avocado and beets. The meal was a Chicken Cordon Bleu, Rice Pilaf, Gravy, Vegetable Bake and Strawberry-Jello-Pretzel creation. For dessert Banana Bread Pudding was served with whipped cream. Oh,and Mojito's! Too full...


Swag my mom made for the tables.

Now it is my turn ;)


We use Tanimura & Antle for all our produce needs. You should too.


We had a professional bartender on hand to make mojito's!

The food [from both days] looks delish! I have always heard about the pretzel/jello concotion - I would love to see a pic' of that...giggle...it just doesn't scream "good taste" - but then again parts of my family feel that ambrosia is a food group!

I am reading your blog and I hope you have recipes - crap dip, chicken cordon bleu [boy did THAT look good!]

Hope you had a great Christmas.

Yikes. Good photos, but I'm glad I've since shaved.

Also, I'm completely amused at the typo "crap dip."

Your family really knows how to party. Great food pics.
