Typically Christmas Eve is spent at our house with my parents & my sister & her family. Usually we play a game, open presents & eat a smorgasbord of food. My mom usually makes a traditional Christmas meal the next day, so I opt for less formal at my house. Here's what was new this year & all delicious.
I used leftover plastic wine cups from a party years ago. The kids loved these.
|Pineapple Shrimp Fried Rice|
|A week or two before Christmas, Capt. N & I were watching the Pioneer Woman. She was making pineapple & shrimp wrapped bacon with a teriyaki glaze. We both decided we needed to add that to this year's Christmas Eve feast.|
Behind the skewers are Chicken Wonton Tacos. Oh man! So, so good. These were definitely my favorite from the evening. I didn't follow this recipe exactly, but it is what I started with.
This has to be one of my favorite Christmas Eve meals. There's a good chance all of it will make an appearance again next Christmas.
How about you? Did you try anything new this year?
