Re:So what's on the Christmas Menu.......
Which meal? We do appetizers for my dad's house (I'm making Grinch kebabs...you may have seen them online somewhere: green grape, banana slice, strawberry, mini marshmallow, all speared on a toothpick); no idea what other people are bringing. Potluck for my house (I'm making cheese crackers, cheese crackers with green olives, whipped garlic cream cheese spread, and three-onion cream cheese spread); again, no idea what anyone else is bringing. And then there's the Christmas Day meal at my house (cornish hens with tarragon-butter-wine sauce, green bean casserole, steel-cut oatmeal with mushrooms onion and thyme, my grandma's tossed salad, baked sweet potatoes, sweet & sour red cabbage, Grands biscuits, and custard rice pudding).
Can't forget my cookie/bread trays, which are around for each party. This year: soft molasses spice cookies, cream cheese walnut drop cookies, lemon cookies, Nutella cookies, white chocolate pumpkin spice cookies, cherry pie filling bread, walnut buttermilk bread, my great-grandma's gingerbread, peppermint-chocolate fudge, and Ferraro Rocher brownies with Nutella frosting.
