My brother and I prepared this over the weekend for a holiday meal.  He’s a chef so he prepared all the hard stuff.  I made the important stuff – like the alcoholic beverages and the chocolate cake.

Oh fun! Here’s my entry! My mom and I made Christmas dinner together. (we also set up the decorations). The menu was:
• Beef Wellington
• Asparagus with Hollandaise sauce
• Rosemary roasted potatoes
• Dessert: this Italian apple tort (no picture of that)

The table:

The beef wellington up close: (it was both our first times making this, and it turned out really well)

I made a fig and orange glazed ham! It was too die for!

and then a ton of sides. Green beans almondiene, sweet potato casserole, twice baked potato, apple and cranberry stuffing, caprese salad, biscuits, and of course corn because Darling Husband would die without it 🙂

and tons of cookies. Peanut butter, 7 layer bars, coconut and cranberry macaroons, red velvet whoopie pies, and apple struessel cheescake bars! mmmm!

@CaraMia10: that’s the Cranberry apple stuffing. AMAZING! and a huge hit with the fam.  I take a 3 day old ciabatta bread  (so that it’s nice and crusty) and cut it into cubes, sautee a red pepper, onion and two granny smith apples then add it to the bread, mix it with a cup of dried cranberries, 2 cups chicken stock, a can of cream of celery soup (flavor but no stringy things to contend with), 3 eggs, some cinnamon, salt and pepper,  mix it all together really good, grease a 13×9 pan, scoop it in, and bake it at 350 for 30minutes or so. You’ll want to eat it every day.

@gabrielleelise1981:

Wow!  How did you make the beef wellington like that with the leaves?  That’s gorgeous!

@SM1982: Thanks! It was super easy actually – my mom is an artist and is always putting “arty” touches on food. We just wrapped the wellington in puff pasty sheets, and then used a leaf cookie cutter to cut out leaf shapes from left over pasty. Took egg white and dabbed egg white onto the leaf puff pasty piece so it would stick onto the wellington puff pasty, and placed them in clusters like real leaves grow, and that’s it! 🙂
