Dining date: 12/25/16
2016 flew by so quickly, as did another holiday season centered around a Christmas feast. Not unlike past years, this Christmas was a tale of two meals – one celebrated on each side of the family. Lunch is a large buffet-style potluck affair, hosted by my aunt and uncle (who prepare most of the food). My grandmother handles most of dinner preparation, which is a bit more meat-centric.
bacon wrapped sausages
smoked chicken over farro
panettone from roy
strip loin roast
chinese sticky rice
cognac and wine
As usual, there were plenty of leftovers which were enjoyed for many days to come. It was great to enjoy another Christmas with family and friends and I look forward to next year’s!
