Christmas Eve 2016

We enjoy having a few friends over on Christmas Eve. We often use it as an occasion to try out something fancier than our usual Saturday night dinner fare. This year, though, we are both feeling the need for comforting food that was fairly simple for us to put together.

Menu
Baked Brie
Roasted Pear and Spiced Pecan Salad with Apple Cider Vinaigrette
Lamb Pie with Puff Pastry
Farro with Mushrooms and Thyme
Roasted Carrots
Gingerbread
Strawberry Shortcake Pie

Notes
6 gathered for dinner this week (5 adults; 1 kid).

Christmas Eve is one of the few times I’ll cook something separate for the visiting child. He enjoyed dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets, tater tots and a chocolate cupcake for dessert.
