Well my mom just emailed me suggesting that instead of bringing gifts, I bring something edible to share. I'm down with this, I might even bring a couple of things, but I'd like some ideas.
My thinking is that usually for these types of thing, people either go straight for pudding, or go very carb heavy, so I'd quite like something lighter and savoury. I'm personally not a fan of figs, but I know some of the family are, so figs and prosciutto could be a real crowd pleaser - maybe the figs can be soaked in something and/or lightly spiced?
Anyway, that's my general thinking, I'd be most pleased to have some ideas
