What Was On the Menu?

Christmas Eve:

Homemade Sweet Potato Soup - with sage and a surprisingly pleasant ingredient - apple cider
Homemade Seafood and Corn Chowder - shrimp, clams, creamed corn and bacon
French Bread

Christmas Day:

Appetizer - Baked Tomato Tarts - the mini muffin tin Pampered Chef recipe
Glazed Ham - easiest entrée ever
Spinach Casserole - with cottage and cheddar cheese
Home Grown Collards - made the day before
Carrot Soufflé - evaporated milk and eggs make this soufflé like dish
Yams - with mini-marshmallow topping
Pineapple Bake - the old fashioned one with tidbits, cheddar cheese and Ritz crackers
Dinner Rolls
Homemade Fudge & Christmas Cookies!

We are enjoying what I call "planovers" rather than leftovers.  I very intentionally make a lot of side dishes to stretch the entrée, enjoying several dinners from a feast like turkey or ham.
