Invited over to the in-laws--and I'll tell you, she makes a mean shrimp curry!!  Yum, yum, yum!  And there was some kind of experimental dessert, the name of which escapes me for the moment, but it was basically strawberry Jello mixed with yogurt, with strawberries and blueberries on top.  Delightful!

And we'll be back over there on Christmas day... I love my in-laws!

I made what were supposed to be shrimp stuffed mushrooms, but ended up being more like mushrooms under stuffing - I made far too much and ended up just piling it into the baking cups on top of the mushrooms.  They were delicious anyway :)

Three-cheese chicken sausage with sautéed zucchini, yellow squash and mushrooms. I tried something new with the mushrooms and it worked very well.

For Christmas eve, we are making Taglerina, a tomato, onion and mushroom sauce with steak in it. We will serve it over gluten-free pasta for DH and with a nice caprese salad and bread. Chocolate gingerbread men for dessert.

Both of those sound lovely, ladynight1. Do you have a recipe for the sausage one?

Tonight will be potato latkes, sour cream and applesauce, with roast asparagus.

A version of walking tacos. I got a bag of nacho cheese doritos and the ingredients for tacos, which will be served over the Doritos.  Wanted to do something quick and easy since we have to be at church at 5:30 for the pageant.

We had an early lunch/dinner of cheddar chowder (family tradition), and we're having Christmas Eve snack after church. It's basically a big buffet of nibbling stuff that makes up for real dinner by leaps and bounds.

No, it is store bought chicken sausage, and I cooked the vegetables on our griddle. The mushrooms were cooked halfway, then tossed with a tablespoon of butter, salt and pepper.

King crab, roasted asparagus, and cheesy potatoes.  We always have crab on Christmas Eve!

Our Christmas dinner will be a Mongolian Hot Pot with lamb and chicken. It involves a lot of prep work but it's festive and clean-up is a cinch.   

Christmas breakfast was salt bean milk with Crullers. 

We are having a very nice little Christmas.

If we go to my parents' house (which we probably will because no one feels like cooking) it'll be chili, potato soup and oyster stew. If we stay home, I have no idea what it'll be. Probably fried chicken and mashed potatoes. Actually, we'll probably do one for lunch and the other for dinner.

I made French onion soup.  I made the soup part completely from scratch - I used beef marrow bones to make the stock part.

Later I will probably make a Cornish game hen glazed in guava sauce and zucchini.

Today brunch was applesauce and grapes, an onion bagel with cream cheese and lox, and hot chocolate with cookies.

Dinner is turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green peas and cranberry sauce with a roll. I froze T-day leftovers and decided to have them tonight. Dessert will be maple sugar candy.
