This year, we're sticking with some old favorites (Snack-y Christmas Eve feast, rib roast, and yummy roasted Brussel sprouts) and adding some new components - namely in the veggie side dishes. I've heard/seen yule logs mentioned in magazines, blogs and podcasts this year and I'm extremely intrigued. I'm lobbying for this to become a new family tradition. I can't even count the different flavor variations we can try for years to come!
I'm looking forward to all of it. I had a great time coming up with the menus!
We'll throw some pictures onto the post after we've created our masterpieces (but before we tear into them!).
