Christmas Eve and Christmas, 2021

This is the first year since 2017 that the whole family has been together. I did not think to take much in the way of food pictures but here is a summary of what we had.

The baking of cookies started things off. This is our daughter’s realm. In addition to the chocolate chocolates cookies she made spice cookies, pretzel cookies, and lemon-anise cookies.

On Christmas Eve we have an hor d’oeuvres dinner at our house. This year along with the food pictured we had lollipop ribs, pigs in blankets, pimento dip, strawberry snowmen, and shrimp cocktail.

Charcuterie and cheese board, various crackers, chicken liver mousse, and hummus

On Christmas Day our son made prime rib, dauphinois potatoes, broccoli casserole, and Brussels sprouts. I contributed Indian pudding and the other grandmother made pies. We also had a fun wine tasting as you can see from all the glasses!

Being together was the best part of the two days and all the special dishes created were wonderful.
