    On Boxing Day, we always have a 'snackie supper' - I made baked spinach dip in pumpernickel, layered cream cheese dip, quiche tarts with ham - and we had sausage, ham, pepperoni, smoked oysters, shrimp ring - all with an assortment of crackers.

    No one had room for dessert, so there will be a tray of baking out, along with chocolates.

    This was the Christmas Day menu we prepared...each course served separately but only 6 people to deal with, so not a huge undertaking. We paused between each course, even took a break after the finger food part to open gifts and catch our breath!.
    I think we will have to start brainstorming right away to top this menu for next year. We have absolutely loved going NON traditional 2 years in a row for this meal. So many turkey dinners all look the same after many years, this has ignited the fun again for DH and I.

    ( sorry for the long read ( post)

    Christmas Dinner Menu 2012
    Soup
    slow simmered broth with turkey, slender diced shallots, grape tomatoes, tender snow peas and festive butternut squash cutouts Served with crisp breadsticks

    Traditional Tourtiere
    single pastry pies filled with hints of savory and thyme, ground pork, onions, mushrooms, and organic rolled oats surrounded with gravy juices Served with Baco Noir wine, vintage 2008

    Comfort Stew
    a hearty bowl with mouthfulls of delicate chicken breast, accompanied by colourful sweet corn, baby peas and carrots, nestled amongst tender gnocchi and coated with a white parmesan sauce
    Served with a side of baby cucumber and avacado salad

    Finger Foods
    for our guests desiring seafood, a tantalizing array of various bites, including crab cakes, seared tiger shrimp, and sauteed scallops in garlic butter, with sweet thai chili sauce and lemon wedge
    For the traditionalists, medallions of lightly breaded chicken breasts with zingy bbq dip
    Both are served with individual homemade califonia rolls and palette pleasing fresh melon balls on a nest of shredded carrot

    Cornish Hen with all the fixins

    A platter of roasted hens with 2 variations of glaze, coffee-liquor or an orange-glaze, each stuffed with orange slices, cranberries, chestnuts, seedless green grapes, and seasoned with fresh sage and tarragon leaves.
    Served with sides of both gourmet mini roasted potatoes and mashed, baby carrots with pecans, cashews, cranberries and organic ginger maple syrup, steamed green beans, broccoli and tri colour peppers, traditional bread dressing and baked butternut squash
    Served with choice of Australian wine, shiraz or cabernet sauvignon

    Is There Room For Desssert?

    We make room! baked and flaky caramel apple blossom, served with candy cane ice cream,
    mini tarts of mincemeat, apple, cherry and pumpkin, cocoa-almond meringue cookies, piping hot gourmet coffee
    HOHOHO rule #1: food has calories after the Santa Claus parade takes place in November.

    ^^ Yes ....and No...meaning so much of it was prepared ahead, and I had DH's help and his excitement in wanting just the right dishes and cutlery that everything was brought out on. Like I said, it is a new tradition we hope to continue.
    I just type up a silly fancy menu to make fun of the way fancy restaurants describe their dishes. Gets a laugh from the family.

    I am looking at making some sweet potato fries later today. Last time I made them they were nice and crispy because I slow roasted them. Hopefully I can succeed again. Might also make pecan tarts.

    Yesterday, we had takeout pizza from our favourite place - we get it every few months. Five dollar coupon helps, but their prices just went up. Bonus was our pick-up card was full so we got two medium pizzas free as well as the x-larges we ordered. So, it's pizza again tonight!
