Christmas Eve 2011

Christmas Eve rolls around once again. Ted and I always set out to make something a little different for our friends who join us on this special night. There was much laughter and joy, and good food if I do say so myself.

Assorted nibbles – cheddar & mimmolette cheese, chopped liver, picholine olives, crackers

Salad with roasted beets, sauteed chestnuts, pomegranate, hazelnuts and lemon pomegranate
Homemade rolls

Braised “country-style” pork ribs with butternut squash and tangerine
Forbidden Rice
Roasted Brussels Sprouts

A sweet tart, painted with dark chocolate, filled with vanilla & rose custard and topped with pomegranate seeds, hazelnuts and candied tangerine peel

Notes under here for the curious.
