  • Non-Traditional Christmas Dinner...

    I am doing all of the cooking on Christmas Day this year, but I'm going a little off the beaten path. I'm cooking for 16 ppl, so it should be fun!

    Here's my menu:

    Appetizer
    Fresh Snap Beans in Soy Sauce, Garlic, and Olive Oil
    Stuffed Mushrooms with Cheddar Cheese and Panceta

    Main Course
    Roasted Beef Tenderloin and Shallots in Port Wine Sauce
    Chicken Cordon Bleu with White Wine Sauce

    Sides
    Corn Grilled in Husk w/Garlic and Lemon Zest Butter
    Gnocci
    Florets of Broccoli
    Creamed Spinach

    Dessert
    Cranberry Sorbet
    Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cheesecake
    My friends and family are so lucky!!

      I had no idea you were that good of a cook. I can't even spell some of that, much less make it fit for consumption.

            I'm cooking for seven this year, but it's all pretty traditional fare. We're having ham, turkey, a bread and wild rice dressing, candied sweet potatoes, a green bean casserole, kernel corn and a gibblet gravy. Dessert will be a hot applecrisp with vanilla bean icecream and a brandied fruitcake with creme fraish. I also make about six or seven types of Christmas Cookies as well.

                              First, you wash them clean, then you scoop out the little "fins" and the stem inside the cap. You prepare your filling and stuff it. Normally you then sprinkle with breadcrumbs and bake.

                              They are a good amount of work for a bite of food, but when done right, they are VERY tasty!!
