We feasted well this year on Christmas Day. We had one of those nice, long, leisurely meals filled with delicious flavors, great conversation and plenty of laughter. My neighbor and I collaborated on the meal and planning it was just as fun as actually making and eating it. We decided on only four courses:
A Trio of Seafood Starters: Scallops in an Orange Sauce, Shrimp with Tropical Salsa and Crab Cakes with Aioli Sauce
Ravioli and Tortellini in a Citrus Cream Sauce
Turkey Breast Stuffed with Chestnuts, Rosemary and Pears
Braised Red Cabbage
Roasted Green Beans
Chocolate Brownie Cake with Homemade Honey Ice Cream
Harriet made the outstanding seafood trio as well as the delicious pasta. I made the main course dishes and the dessert. It all went together beautifully.
