Christmas Food, Part I

Well, we are flying by the seat of our pants tonight! I had a big menu planned for us and we got everything made, but after we’d had mulled wine, a cocktail, an appetizer, salad, soup, and rolls, we were full. We took a walk through the snow and by the time we got back, decided to save the rest of the meal for tomorrow so as not to just eat until we felt sick.

So. We started with Pomegranate and Peach Punch and Caprese Turnovers:

Next up was an Ugly Duckling Salad (don’t let the title fool you – there’s no duck here!), Thai Pumpkin Butternut Squash Soup, and Roasted Garlic and Rosemary Rolls:

At which point we took our walk and then finished up with more mulled wine and Petite Orange and Raspberry Pochettes:

Everything’s been good enough, but so far I’m a little disappointed that we haven’t had a huge success – nothing’s made us go ‘OMG, this is AMAZING!’ There are more dishes to come tomorrow, so hopefully it’s just yet to come.

Hope you’re all having a happy holiday wherever you are this year!
