Lisa, that sounds awfully like the traditional Kiwi Christmas dinner (although turkeys are becoming more popular, and thus cheaper). That's what hubs wanted (the lamb that is) - note to self, make more mint sauce - but of course I won't have the potatoes. I will do roast veg - red onions, squash, sweet potato, parsnip - and asparagus is in full swing here (no peas for this gal although they DO go with the mint sauce :(), and rather than the pie we will have individual pavlovas with strawberries and Kiwifruit on the whipped cream (just might marinade those strawberries ;) )

I LOVE lamb, (not a mint sauce fan, though) but alas, no one except my beloved Dad would eat it so....that is not what we are having.....man, bummer... <_<

anyhoo....Going to be a bit busy tomorrow with hub's aunt here (she is an 85 year old sweetheart who loves her manhattans) so
I am making her what SHE likes. I do love her so! :wub:

Dinner for Christmas Eve will be:

Shrimp cocktail
Stuffed portabella mushrooms (with crabmeat)
Deviled eggs (mustard and horseradish)

Applewood smoked ham with a fruited glaze
Potatoes gratin
roasted asparagus
cheesy dinner rolls

Cheesecake with vanilla spiked whipped cream and/blueberry coulis
Brandy Alexanders ( I "create" one of those for her --while we watch "A Christmas Carol"--the 1951 version, of course with Alastair Sim because she likes both of those--and I confess, so do I)


And a Merry Christmas to all.!!! I'll be doing "encores " on Christmas Day.... and resting...
Blessings to you all. xxoo IH

no scalloped potatoes for me -- I saved plenty of room for dessert just having lamb, mint sauce and vegies ;)
and no peas here either -- those are up with mashed potatoes for Hubby's family tomorrow night

but I had PIE -- was inspired by my favorite pie purchased in nearby Julian during a drive/hike in the local mountains on Friday -- my pre-dx favorite was "Mom's" Apple Boysenberry Crumb -- we used to get it every time we camped up that way -- anyway I bought one for tonight's meal -- rare gluten crumbs were allowed for this special treat -- and wanted to make one that my sons could eat safely and ended up making it grain and dairy free so I could eat it too -- tasted fantastic -- very close to my old favorite :)

I was never a mint jelly fan -- always provided it for my Dad -- this year I forgot to buy jelly - we made a simple sauce with fresh chopped mint, agave and wine vinegar -- I did like this one -- and it was so simple.

It's those dishes or sauces we create out of necessity--fresh and simple--that are the best sometimes, yes? yaay for you!
(learning to punt in the kitchen (and in life) is essential.) Best laid plans and all....
just learned Aunt Ann has a cold and her COPD is acting up, Needs her oxygen tank to sleep, so she will not be sleeping over.
oh well :( ...... the nightcaps and the movie are out LOL and hopefully the snow will not start falling until we have brought her back home safely.

My cookies still have not made themselves. <_<

Turns out though that today is a perfect Christmas Eve. It is snowing lightly, I have a few errands to run, but nothing urgent. I'll get it all done before lunch. Heck, I'm still in my jammies at my computer at 9:30. Before dinner I'll have the counter covered in fresh baked cookies, the yard will have a few inches of fresh snow and by tonight we'll be able to curl up with some hot chocolate. By all accounts, I do believe it will be a perfect day. :D

First kind of cookies, done! I may have eating a half dozen or so while they were still dough. :ph34r: Getting done in time with all my cookies so I can cook supper is not looking good. Especially since I can't be on my feet too long at once without terrible cramping so I need frequent breaks to let my legs rest. Oh well, I guess we're having cookies for supper!

That's it - snow, jammies and gluten-free cookies - I'm headed to addie's!

Teasing aside - today is a wonderful day because I am once again vertical and gaining strength daily - today I seem to be possessed by Cindy Lou Who - my house is looking incredibly cheery and bright -- we are just about ready to put the Roast Beast in the Oven -- the Grinch best not stop here or s/he may be killed with kindness today ;)

Also on the menu for my hubby's gaggle of relies is mashed potatoes, gravy and peas.

Starters are Shrimp with "grandma's chili sauce" that is the brand and it is awesome - sadly not nightshade free; chips with spinach dip and cruchmaster crackers with our beloved RBJ (thank you L2T).

Blueberry Cheesecake to wrap it up - oh teeny tiny mason jars of RBJ and Sugar Scrub (thank you Alex) for parting gifts.

This forum means the world to me and has been the bright spot during many dark days ---

Thank you all for being here - "Happy Christmas to all and to ALL a good night!"

Done baking in plenty of time to rest up, clean the kitchen and make some dinner later. I'm just about ready to crawl back into some toasty warm jammies. I have more snow on order and want my pants to still fit at the end of the week so anyone who wants to come help me eat all these cookies is more than welcome to! I've got ginger snaps and orange cream filled somethings. They are to die for! Merry Christmas everyone!! :D

Holy smokes! Those orange filled somethings look amazing! The hubs was looking over my shoulder and said "ooh, whose are those? I'll be right over!" I told him he should get started now as he has long walk.

Enjoy the toasty jammies and the cookies.

It snowed a bit overnight here and I've got a White Christmas. whoohooo Hope you got some too!
