On The Menu

Each year for the past 32 years, I have had Christmas Eve dinner at my house. I love, love, love it!!! I enjoy planning the menu, shopping for the ingredients and spending the week preparing, cooking and baking! It's a lot of work but worth every minute of it.

Here's what's on the menu this year:

  • Shrimp Cocktail
  • Crab Cakes
  • Mozzarella Sticks
  • Pizza Bites
  • Ranch and Pecan Cheese Ball
  • Pesto and Cheddar Cheese Ball
  • Onion and Mustard Cheese Ball
  • Ham Tortilla Pinwheels
  • Sausage Wonton Stars
  • Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip
  • Crackers
  • Melba Toast
  • Relish Tray
  • Meatballs
  • Garlic Bread
  • Garden Salad
  • Baked Mostaccioli
  • Oreo Cake
This isn't even close to what I used to serve. I've had to pair things down over the years since our family is scattered a little bit and we don't have as many at our table anymore. I used to also have on the menu two different soups, chicken, fish and dozens upon dozens of cookies! 

If you would like to try one of my recipes, leave me a comment with your email address and I will send that to you!

From our house to yours - Merry Christmas!!! May the Lord bless you and your family this year and always!!!
