Merry Christmas! 2010 - Our Christmas Dinner Menu

holiday greetings 2010


From our kitchen to yours, we wish you a very Merry Christmas!

Our traditional Christmas Day foods include kibbeh, crab meat dip, crudites, a variety of Christmas nuts, trays of cookies and a bowl of clementines.  Our dinner menu is usually turkey with stuffing and gravy, fresh cranberry sauce, Swedish potatoes, whole kernel corn and sweet potatoes followed by lemon meringue and apple pies.  As our family grew with more at the table for the Christmas feast we added prime rib roast.  This year our Christmas dinner menu has taken a new direction as there will only be four of us the entire day.  Our big Christmas gathering is being held in January.  We will have various snacks throughout the day along with bowl of clementine oranges gracing the table.  There is a story behind the oranges from my early childhood so they have been a must have in our home every holiday season.  This year we are adding  hickory smoked ham,  port wine jelly, and cheesecake to our traditional menu.
