Holiday Special – A Festive Christmas Dinner

Christmas_StockingBy Christmas, the shopping’s done (or won’t be), the stockings are hung and dinner is bubbling on a back burner. Sit back, sip a glass of champagne or white wine and nibble a few Rosemary Cashews or Roasted Almonds and Spicy Almonds. If you want to add a special touch without a lot of work, add some Mediterranean Shrimp.

Start your Christmas Eve Feast with a salad … Roasted Beet & Goat Cheese would be delicious. But maybe you’d prefer Mixed Greens with Roasted Grapes or Reds & Greens Holiday Salad.

Seafood is traditional on Christmas Eve. Think cozy and at least somewhat traditional New England with Lobster & Corn Chowder or Nana Nye’s Prize Winning New England Fish Chowder. Want something more continental? Try my Mediterranean Seafood Stew. How about spicy with Caribbean Seafood Stew?

For dessert … you could try a Nye family tradition with Aunt Anna’s Pecan Pie or start your own with Ginger Crème Brûlée or Maple Mousse with Apple Compote.

Want to take your Christmas Eve dinner up a notch? How about a beautiful Feast of Seven Fishes? I’ve got a delicious tapas or small plates menu and links to the recipes for you.

Merry Christmas with Family and Friends and Bon Appétit!
