A Groaning Board is an English idiom for a table laden with copious amounts of food. I thought it would be fun to create one for the New Year's party,
I made a ham, a smoked turkey breast and meatballs for the center of the table.
The ham was served with Jezebel sauce, i made about ten different kinds of pickles, chutneys and mustards. I baked french bread and made olive breadsticks.
I made my DIL's favorite Asian chicken salad finger sandwiches. The disappeared fast.
I also made Kaak...street bread from Beirut. There was a large assortment of salamis and cured meats along with lots of different cheeses.
I made a yellow vanilla bean cake with marshmallow frosting and a dark chocolate cake with buttercream icing. A big platter of Xmas cookies added to the temptation. Winnie was in heaven with so many people in her house. She was passed from lap to lap all night long.
