Merry Christmas 2014 from Dinner Is Served

IMAG0829Oh my what a wonderful Christmas it’s been and still is! Family is coming over this afternoon for our super duper appetizer spread. If I do say so myself, we’ve totally outdone ourselves this year with great food (and also presents as you can see). Starting last night with a simple but satisfying Christmas Eve dinner of grilled NY Strip steaks, roasted truffle potatoes and broccoli. Then up early this morning to Pioneer Woman’s Cinnamon Baked French Toast and fruit salad.

This afternoon we’ll have our appetizer spread featuring some family favorites: Marinated Pork Tenderloin on Rye and Dill Dip with chips and veggies. Also serving up some fresh shrimp with my Holiday Dipping Sauce

IMAG0839And of course what holiday meal would be complete with cookies. LOTS AND LOTS OF COOKIES!  We have our tried and true favorites:

Heavenly Chocolate Toffee Bars

THE Heavenly Toffee Chocolate bars (above) and (below) my grandma’s Apricot Bars

Gram's Apricot Bars

And two new favorites to add this year: Potato Chip Cookies with Toasted Pecans from Creative Culinary and these melt-in-your-mouth Peppermint Meltaways fro The Recipe Critic.

Anticipating a total and complete food coma tomorrow which hopefully I will recover from by the time NYE rolls around. So until then, I am wishing you all the joys of the season and blessings for you, your family and friends.
