First course, Christmas Eve lentil soup.
Feast of the seven fishes minus three at Great China. There’s a pile of excellent fresh noodles under there. Also had salt & pepper squid and steamed surf clams.
Part of the Christmas Eve Day brunch buffet. Our guests made a valiant effort to eat their weight in smoked fish, but there’s still too much leftover food in the house.
Okay, now let me ask you. When we’re in Seattle we almost always hit the wonderful Uwajimaya, Asian everything. Their horseradish is a fraction of that size and is $100/#!!! What’s the difference please?
I presume that’s wasabi aka Japanese horseradish, which is expensive to grow. Most commercial wasabi products are made from European horseradish and food coloring.
Oops, senior moment
No pics—but for Hanukkah I made a roast leg of lamb and potato latkes (latkes from TJs, but still yummy). I thought I was going for Chinese or Thai food on Christmas----but my plans changed, so it was leftover lamb!!
I’ve been making hash browns in my waffle iron. I wonder if latkes would work.
I don’t see why not. The only real difference is egg and matzah meal as a binder—it would probably be a somewhat lighter version of hash browns.
Leftover stuffing makes for great “hash-a-ffles” using a waffle iron.
that sounds really good!!
This is a great thread.

Gorgeous. Parmesan soup sounds very intriguing. And your spirits are so interesting. I would like to try the strawberry brandy, I think.
I just saved the soup recipe! All the food sounds and looks so good. And thanks for including some of the recipes.
Hah! I noticed the ‘Fergus’ Straight away from your picture. That Is a great salad.
