Amazing Christmas Dinner

A festive low key Christmas dinner, the way I like it.

The dinner itself was a traditional turkey dinner, but everything tasted amazing, reflecting the long day of cooking that generated this feast.

In addition to turkey and stuffing, the spread of vegetables would have been a vegetarian's Christmas dinner dream come true.

Carrots, broccoli, baked parsnips with cilantro, baked new potatoes with onions, mashed potatoes and mashed sweet potatoes.

And then there was the cranberry sauce. I never really gotten into this cranberry sauce business, but this one was not only home-made but cooked with leftover sangria. Glad to have come home with a jar of this.

And of course Sweet e's desserts are everywhere. A creative version of a traditional Bouche Noel - vanilla cake with cream cheese and orange filling, finished in vanilla butter cream. Yes, it tastes as decadent as it sounds, if not more.

A very merry evening and surprise pack of leftovers to go!

Thank you Alice!  Thank you Sweet e's!
