This year marked the 5th year that Jason and I have cooked Christmas Eve dinner. I have to say, I think it was one of our best ever! Instead of cooking at our house, dinner was served at my in-laws due to the ever increasing family! More than anything, the meal seemed to be the most well-rounded and cohesive meal that we have served. We started with a plated salad and then served everything else right at the table. A couple of bottles of wine, great food and family, just what the holidays are all about!
We were sad not to spend the evening with my family who usually joins us at our place, but it gave my mom some extra time to prepare for the amazing beef tenderloin dinner she served us on Christmas day!
