Christmas Eve Dinner

 My daughter and her chef boyfriend invited us over for Xmas Eve dinner.  It was the first meal he cooked in their new kitchen.  He braised lamb shanks and served them with truffled pasta.  He even made the pasta from scratch!

A wonderful calamari salad with a lemon vinaigrette.
 And shrimp and sausage over grits.  He made all of my favorite things!  How wonderful to have someone cook for me!!!

 Winnie was a sleepy spectator.

She had a wonderful first Christmas.

As much as you cook, it must have been a thrill for you to be served such delicious food.
Everything looks so delicious. I bet you felt like a queen having someone fuss with dinner for you.
Have a great Christmas.
