Every year we have another couple that joins us for Christmas Eve. They have children, so the grandparents get them while the couple joins us for an adult evening of drinking and finger foods. We've been doing this for the last 6 years and even though we no longer live just across the street, we're still continuing with the tradition this year.
So here is my dilemma...I'm stuck for any food ideas this year. I usually serve shrimp cocktail, lamb chops, brie, fruit, crackers, quiche, and petit fours. I feel like mixing it up this year and the usuals just aren't doing it for me. Any suggestions?
FYI as a slight deviation from Christmas dinner this year, I won't serve my usual all seafood feast, instead it will be filet oscar and lobster tail, roasted baby red potatoes, and an appetizer of raw oysters and lobster bisque. This is provided just to avoid any redundancy with ideas for Christmas Eve.
