Christmas Dinner

I love to cook so hosting a holiday dinner party is especially fun for me. This year’s dinner consisted of a salad of baby greens, slow roasted filet of beef with double mushroom ragout, individual horseradish bread puddings, asparagus roasted with garlic, Parmesan, and lemon flavored olive oil, and a gingerbread cake with cream cheese and pecan/pumpkin glaze. All of it was delicious but, the horseradish bread puddings were the hit of the dinner. They were very tasty. It’s unfortunate that I couldn’t seem to remember to take a picture of the actual food. I guess I was having too much fun with my guests.

And, speaking of my guests, let me just say that while the food was great, the best part of the evening was spending it with dear friends who bring laughter, love, and joy with them.

I like your Christmas crockery!

I had vegetarian haggis (I know, an oxymoron), it was delicious!
