My South by Southwest Christmas Eve Menu

larochelle | Dec 11, 2006 04:55 PM

Since my in-laws get Christmas, I'm having a Friends & Orphans Christmas Eve dinner (20ish people). While I live in San Francisco, most of the items on the menu are based on the land and foods of my youth.


Pre-Dinner Cocktail -- Sparkling Lemon Drops

Antojitos -- Endive Salad Cups; Queso Flameados con Salsa; Build-Your-Own-Grits Bar

Sopa -- Crema de Poblano

Carnes -- Ancho Honey Ham; Brined Achiote Turkey & Gravy

Sides -- Mashed Potatoes; Poblano Cornbread & Tamale Stuffing; Calabacitas; Rolls/Biscuits

Condiments -- Salsas, Chutneys, Cranberry Sauce

Desserts -- Cookies with Port; Tres Leche Cake with Coffee or Tea

Any additional suggestions are welcome since I have 12 days to change my mind!
