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).
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.
