I planned and cooked Christmas dinner for 8 this year. It all worked out pretty well (aside from the *dramatic* oil spatters that greeted our guests as a tossed cauliflower, which apparently still had water on it, into hot olive oil!) Here was the menu:
Harvest Hummus & Baba Ghanoush with Pita Chips & Carrots
Arugula, Pomegranate & Goat Cheese with Balsamic Vinaigrette
Grilled Salmon & Asparagus
Butternut Squash & Vanilla Risotto
* This was super easy and the lemon hint is amazing.
Wesson Oil Chocolate Cake & Strawberries
