Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays!
Christmas dinner was wonderful. The Wellingtons turned out superb, served with a Madeira sauce. And the vegetarians enjoyed Alaskan wild salmon Wellingtons (duxelles and artichoke filling) with a white wine cream sauce.
: Eggplant/red pepper stromboli; pan-fried onion dip (i know, I know... but it's homemade and delicious!; a spanakopita variation in phyllo cups; cheese board)
: Baby greens with pomegranate vinaigrette garnished with sliced oranges and pomegranate seeds
included sour cream mashed potatoes, broccoli with roasted red peppers and red onions. (No haricot verts left in the store, so I went with the broccoli, which was fine)
: Profiteroles with vanilla ice cream and chocolate ganache; Floating Islands; Greek cookies; store-bought chocolate truffles and candies.
: Sumatra blend decaf (from Whole Foods... it's really good)
Thanks for all your help, suggestions, and input.
