A New Tradition....

In the past, we've hosted a Christmas Eve gathering for family - after our church services.  This year we decided to have an earlier gathering - a Christmas Eve brunch.  It was really fun and even more delicious.

We had all of the ingredients for a festive time

friends and family

A picture-perfect fire

And lots of delicious food:

panettone for french toast

Pepperoni rolls for my brother-in-law

The spread included: spanish omelette, empanadas, fresh fruit, fennel and orange salad, spinach and artichoke dip, french toast panettone, chipped beef gravy with potatoes, breakfast sausages, and baked eggs florentine with baguette

Everyone brought something and no one left hungry! 

I hope this will become a new Christmas tradition.  It was a different sort of party, with all of the guests leaving before 5:00 pm.  I love when our little house is filled with great food, even better people, and lots of Christmas cheer!


  1. That sounds like a lovely Christmas tradition. Look at all that yummy food on the table, it was making my mouth water just reading the list of all the dishes.

  2. Mmmmmmmmmmmm..I thought I was still full from our Christmas feast but it appears not since all that food looks so good!

    Sounds like brunch was fun. You could invite some of your overseas friends next year...hint hint
