I love the Holiday's because of the delicious food that seams to be endlessly available at every turn. You get to visit home and sample your Mom's homemade favorites. This year I actually decided to make a few desserts. My Mom wanted to taste my Sweet Potato Cheesecake, so I made one for her. Then I made a Creme Brulee Bread Pudding to take to my in-laws for dinner. Everyone seemed to really enjoyed the desserts. I actually turned some folks into Bread Pudding fans.
On Christmas Eve, I went to the grocery store to pick up a few things and they had lobster tails on sale. I bought a few and then purchased some salmon. Decided to make blackened salmon with Belgian Ale poached lobster tails, and Creamy herb rice. Everything tasted really well. My wife and I really enjoyed it!
