Our first is on Christmas eve with my family and the second is on Christmas day with my hubby’s family. Each dinner equally amazing and each get together equally Christmas, since my family still celebrates on our traditional Christmas eve.
The evening affair is very German with real live candles on the tree, hence the blue cabbage and other European style dishes such as rabbit or goose. The Christmas day affair still reminiscent of the Mexican culture and heritage of my husbands family.
So to complicate things, we have two menus. I’ve already posted the Christmas eve menu planner I had started and it’s grown into a Pot Luck of sorts with several of us bringing different items from the menu to the celebration.
My oldest daughter has found a tamale maker that will create tamales using the wild game her ‘hunter’ will provide.
I have to admit this will be the first menu of it’s type since my husbands mother passed away several years ago. A bit sentimental for me and, I’m sure, for the rest of us.
