Let's Look - Holiday Menu

The topic for today's link up is Let's Look at Your Holiday Menu.  We have lots of fun meals at Christmastime and although I haven't planned exactly what we'll be doing, I'll share what we typically do.

Lobster night. We always have lobster at Christmastime, a few days before Christmas after our guests have arrived. Dave can't have lobster since he is allergic so he gets a steak instead.  We serve our steamed lobster hot with melted lemon butter.  Dave usually makes his special roasted potatoes.

Christmas Eve.  This is just a smorgasbord of items we can graze on between church and Santa's arrival.  Fresh oysters, fondue, cheese and crackers, M and M Meat appetizers, and a shrimp ring.  

Christmas morning.  Last year we had smoked salmon on bagels instead of a breakfast casserole and I think we will do that again.  I also make a colourful fruit platter, and we always have mimosas (or my preference, a mimosa, hold the orange juice).

Christmas Dinner.  We have a traditional turkey dinner with all of the trimmings.  

Special treats.  I love Jamie Oliver's bread pudding made with pannetone, sugar cookies with icing and sprinkles, egg nog with Irish Whiskey and Kahlua, shrimp butter and oat cakes.  

Linking up with Shay and Erika.


  1. Oh, this is making me hungry for holiday food!!!

  2. Aaah! So much delicious goodness! You always do a super job keeping everyone well fed and feeling like royalty! 😍

  3. We do an easy meal on Christmas eve too; take out pizza! LOL. Usually my mom hosts and picks up the pizzas on her way home from church-- with so many of us it's the easiest option that everyone likes. I host a Christmas morning brunch every other year but we never have the same menu twice. I should probably start thinking about what I'd like to serve this year.
