One of the long honored traditions was changend this year as we decided a grand Christmas Eve meal would free up our Christmas Day to play, mingle & enjoy. It's a big change, I know, but Beef Wellington, honey ginger carrots, rolls, green beans, cranberry salad & egg nog can certainly be enjoyed just as much the day after. The evening came to a close with a new dessert : Chocolate Pots de Creme.
With the heat from oven and stovetop busy at work quickly filling the home with familiar smells, the traditional triffle found itself next to a new favorite, Orange-Walnut Buche de Noel.
There is just something so satisfying about being able to balance the old with the new. Intermixing them together to create a beautiful song.
