After combing through all of my holiday magazines for the last several hours, I think I've come up with a menu for Christmas Eve dinner that will work for everyone.
First course - warm endive salad with bacon
Second course - fennel soup w/chestnuts
Main course - horseradish roast beef
Side dishes - smashed parmesean potatoes and mushroom stuffing
Dessert - homemade marshmallows & hot chocolate
Now, to execute that menu!
