’Twas the Night Before Christmas – and What Are You Eating?
When most families sit down to Christmas dinner, they don’t stray too far from turkey, ham and the usual edible suspects. Christmas Eve, however, is another story – a chance to be a little more creative food-wise.
While awaiting Santa’s arrival, my clan, for example, has lobster mac and cheese with tomato basil soup, while my sister-in-law’s family always chows down with Brunswick stew and barbecue. A friend says her group would be less than merry if she didn’t serve poinsettias – festive cocktails made with champagne and cranberry juice.
We’d love to know what you’ll have on your table Dec. 24. If you’d like to share your family’s Christmas Eve food traditions with us, please email your menu and comments about it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday, Nov. 10.
Just make sure to include your name and which Over the Mountain city or neighborhood you live in. We’ll include as many responses as possible in the Nov. 30 issue of the OTMJ.
