New Year Party

I mentioned last week that we attended a Christmas dinner at a friend’s house. Not only was it absolutely beautiful, the menu was incredible. Best meal I’ve had in a LONG time. Whitney really outdid herself this year!!

Each place setting came with a beautiful ornament that also served as a party favor. What a great idea!

The menu consisted of the following (disclaimer – these are not the actual recipes from the dinner, I just found similar delicious sounding recipes to share with you):

Curried Carrot Ginger Soup

Beef Tenderloin

Potato and Leek Gratin

Balsamic Braised Brussel Sprouts

And for dessert a choice between:

Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake and Pumpkin Layer Cake

I had both, of course.

After dinner, well before too, we enjoyed egg nog and a champagne cocktail, as well as a hot chocolate bar.

We were nice…

And we were naughty…

Everyone had a fantastic time and here’s the proof.
