Here's my spread from Christmas Eve…
Clockwise from the bottom left: homemade Sangiovese (the Pinot Grigio is apparently being poured by someone at that moment), cranberry juice/sparkling water mix, rye breads, bread basket with rolls (bought), sandwich fixin's (mozzarella, provolone, swiss cheese, prosciutto, roast beef, turkey, sliced tomato, baby lettuce, mayo, coarse mustard), sushi (what? store-bought, but passed the Carrie test), veggies & ranch dip (red & green bell peppers, cauliflower, broccoli, mushroms, all organic), cranberry-apple dish that L always makes (a portion with no nuts, for me!), various pretzels, green & calamata olives, fruit & cheese, and two plates of cookies.
Our group included me & Al of course, our kids both home for the holidays, my parents and both my sisters and their families (including from Germany, and our other "sister" via Skype video from Germany)
Then we had our family gift exchange, and then most of us (some were a little sickly) went to Christmas Eve service at our church, where I was singing in the choir – a beautiful service as always, including singing "Silent Night" by candlelight at the end.
