Christmas Dinner...

All Finn wanted for Christmas Dinner was a heaping portion of home-made macaroni and cheese.  I couldn't think of anything less suited to a holiday feast than a BBQ mainstay, but who am I to deny such pasta passion?  Rather than object or redirect, I justified that cheesy dish by wholeheartedly embracing  a brand new holiday theme!
 A Southern Comfort Christmas
Pimento Cheese and Crackers
Spiced Pecans
Classic Deviled Eggs
Old Bay Shrimp Cocktail
Mel's Honey Drizzled Fried Chicken
Amy Inspired Skillet Cornbread Stuffed Pork with Cinnamon BBQ Sauce
Finn's Baked Mac N' Cheese
Nan's Braised Collard Greens 
Green and Wax Beans with Garlic, Chilies and Lemon
Blackeyed Pea Salad
Amy's Cherry Pie a la Mode

 It turned out to be a feast to remember!  I am not sure if I could turn my back on a Southern inspired Christmas theme ever again.  Of course, I may not be the best person to ask because I would take a piece of fried chicken over a slab of prime rib any day.
 This was our third year sharing Christmas night with our dear friends Aim, Graham and their girls.  We were lucky to have Amy's parents join in this year as well; were learned that adding a clown-kissing, Harley loving lady to mix only makes a holiday better!

 Our annual gift exchange was a hit again this year and mustache-loving Sophie absolutely nailed her gift to Leif.  Leopard print glasses with a handlebar mustache attachment and an does of instant Irish accent...perfection in a present!
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
