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.
