Fancy Schmancy

Caviar and crackers.
Champagne and strawberries.
Sterling and China.

We didn't have the first two fancy combinations for our Christmas Eve feast, but we did celebrate with the third. 

After heading to Christmas Eve Mass in the afternoon, my mom put out her best sterling silverware, thanks to Nana for polishing, and her beautiful Lenox china for our delicious fancy schmancy dinner.

On the menu:
  • Cinnamon and Garlic Pork Loin
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Green Beans
  • Balsamic Glazed Brussel Sprouts
  • Harvest Apples
  • Rolls
and last but not least...Aunt Janie's Rum Cake for dessert!

It was delicious!

After dinner, Mike and I exchanged our ornaments (one of our traditions):

Mike got me this adorable apron ornament...

and I got him a campfire ornamnet. 

If you know my husband, this makes perfect sense...if you don't, here is a clue.

Merry Christmas!
