For a household without kids, or even a lot of nearby family, we sure do make a big fuss over Christmas.  Food is a big part of the fun.   Here are our menus. So what’s going to be on your table?

Christmas Eve Dinner

  • Cracked Crab with cocktail sauce and lemon
  • Asparagus with Dipping Sauce
  • French Bread
  • Surprise Dessert (can’t publish it here or it wont be a surprise)

Beverage: French 75 champagne cocktails (Gin, Champagne, Fresh Lemon Juice and a little Peach Liquor)

Christmas Brunch

  • Latkes with Sour Cream and Apple Sauce
  • Christmas cookies

Beverage: Mimosas

Christmas Pre-Dinner (we’re having appetizers around 4 with a friend who lives down the street)

  • Mushroom Appetizer with cream sauce on toast points – I have no idea its real name but our friend makes it and it’s divine
  • Onion Tarts – also home made

Beverage: Small Batch Bourbon Boston Sour (Bourbon, Fresh lime juice, Elderflower Liquor, egg white)

Christmas Dinner

  • Beef Wellington
  • Broiled Tomatoes
