Christmas Eve: Steak Pizzaiola with bowtie pasta and Parmesan.

Christmas Day: Bacon, mushroom, onion, and tomato with macaroni.

Yesterday: Chili dogs and chips.

I am craving sushi and so is my DH. Going to the Japanese steak house for hibachi and sushi. Yum!

I sincerely love green bean casserole and stuffing but didn't have either dish at Thanksgiving or Christmas so I'm having them for dinner tonight!

Christmas Eve - Homemade Calzone , various appie's

Christmas Day : ( Dinner for 16 ) - Cheese and Fruit Tray, Taco Dip ( meat version and veggie version ) - this does not really go with dinner - but is a particular family favorite.  My Nephews fiancee is vegetarian and she commented last year that it smeeled so good - she might just cheat ( it has sausage ).  This year -0 I made a bean ad=nd veggie based version - she was very surprised and pleased.  I overheard her telling her fiancee - my Nephew - how nice it is that I make veggie food, but just incorporate it in so she doesn't stick out like a sore thumb.

Lasagna Bolognese and homemade cheese manicotti.  ( Homemade shells ), Green salad, Garlic bread and sauteed green beans.

Dessert and Wine brought in by SIL's - seriously 6 kinds of pie, homemade candy and a mountain of cookies.

Today - went out for Chinese Lunch with the boys at an upscale Chinese restaurant.  Very delicious.

Tonight - tomato soup and cheese tray grilled cheese ( all the leftover cheese gets cubed up and stuck in a ziplock - I pull out random cheese for omelets, mac n cheese and grilled cheese ).

Tomorrow - we had a whole lasagna leftover and our Venezuelan friends had a lot of empanadas and Venezuelan food. We are getting together for lunch and pooling leftovers.  They cant wait for lasagna and I can't wait for empanadas.

I'm headed to a friend's for one of our favorite dinners: salad, steamed green beans, baguette and all the brie and European style butter we can stand. It's so simple but we do this every time we get together.

She surprised me with a different menu! We had toasted sandwiches with goat cheese, roasted winter squash and pecans, and a little bit of honey, with a side of roasted mixed veggies. It was delicious and I'm going to have to make more of those sandwiches.

welp...I started with wine. But I should probably fill my stomach with food to soak it all up. 

maybe an omlette or keilbasa

Wow,  we spent 3 hours making 2 different empanadas:  black bean and corn for dinner (plus cilantro chimichurri and plain yogurt) and apple-raisin minis for dessert. Plus a salad (spinach, pomegranate,  Mandarin orange, tomato and carrots) and chips and salsa. Friends brought the wine, and a successful first dinner party (5 months after moving in) was had.

Whatever I can pick up on the way to the hospital, where I expect to be sitting around waiting for hoooooours. (Just got referred there for not-quite-emergency minor surgery, wheee. :-\)
