Christmas Dinner Menu


The beauty of a Christmas tree really never gets old. I love how our tree changes every year with each new ornament and memory we add to it. My husband’s family passed down a tradition where we cut off a ring from the stump of the tree every year and dry it out, then decorate it and turn it into an ornament; and each year my mom gives me the annual Swarovski crystal snowflake ornament – each year’s glimmering snowflake is different from the last.  But enough of the sappy tree talk (no pun intended) – we’re all here for the food!
