Christmas This and That


Well I know I said I would not post till after Christmas but I feel kind of bad. I was very stressed and kind of abruptly said goodbye. I did not know for several days how many family members were coming for Christmas and if I was having company staying at my house. Now it looks like we will have a second Christmas in 2 weeks. Luckily I love Christmas and cooking a second dinner. I was a bit panicked but now fine (now that I have a game-plan in my mind)

I wanted to post our Christmas breakfast menu like I promised. It is actually pretty simple. I would have like to do a bit more but with the craziness of the past days this will be what it will be.

Also I wanted to confess that when I posted that we were going to have beef Wellington for dinner I did not realize the price of fillet of beef. After the sticker shock wore off, I realized it was totally out of our price range. So we have having a cherry stuffed pork loin with a red wine lavender sauce. Also I did not have time to make the sorbet, so I went to this wonderful shop Mora and got mango sorbet. If you are ever on Bainbridge island, stop Mora. I will also say I tested the frozen raspberry mousse. It is amazing !!!!

What a delish breakfast! I'm enjoying some pork these past few weeks. The price is so good; why pass it up?

Dear Clarice,
Thank you so very much for visiting my blog & leaving a sweet comment!

Your breakfast menu looks wonderful!

Merry merry Christmas,
Amy Rue


Merry Christmas Clarice! Have a great one.


Wishing you and yours a most Joyous Christmas!!!


Everything is always so last minute ... at the last minute! Even with all the pre-planning. But in the end it's all just right - cherry stuffed pork loin roast with lavendar sauce is SO much better than beef wellington! Merry, Merry Christmas!


Clarice, always a joy to read your happenings....have a merry Christmas with a rememberance of the real reason for the season.

Have a Merry Christmas, Clarice. It sounds very yummy! Cheers! Love, LA


What a lovely menu, Clarice! Everything sounds delicious!! I feel the same way when I don't know how many people are coming, etc. I'm glad things have been figured out. I was just thinking yesterday that it would be nice to have two Christmas dinners just to try all the different recipes! :0)
Phillip went to Whole Foods(Organic Health food store) the other day to get me 1 lb. of ground lamb for Shepherd's pie and the guy in front of him had two packages of beef..and they weren't large either. $212.00 dollars. Oh, I can barely type that, let alone think about spending it! LOL
Your Christmas entree sounds perfect...YUM!!
Merry Christmas!


wow Clarice! it sounds delicious! I hope you and your family have a lovely Christmas xx


Your breakfast menu looks so tempting. Isn't it enjoyable to plan special meals - especially when it looks like some of the pressure is off for you.

Thanks for visiting my blog, I look forward to getting to know you in 2007

You must be a wonderful cook. It all sounds so delicous!

Merry Christmas and God's Blessings in the New Year.


Enjoy your extendend Christmas Clarice.
I too am having another dinner next Sunday, which happens to be New Year's Eve.
Your menu sounds so so good!
Merry, Merry, Merry, Christmas!!!!


What a beautiful menu! I decided to add the sorbet course. I'll have to settle for plain ole store bought, though. You've inspired me to have a formal dinner at home this year and have never felt so prepared. Enjoying all your ideas! Love
