Project Amour Eric and Chandra's Journey to Get Married in Paris


Joyeux Noel

Merry Christmas

Frannie with our Christmas Tree

Today I am hosting Eric's family for Christmas lunch and gift exchange. Eric's mother, sisters and aunt and uncle will be staying the night with us along with their four legged family members. I have been working over the past few days to create the perfect holiday lunch. Some members of the family are vegetarian so I want to make sure everyone can enjoy an exceptional holiday meal. The menu I have decided on includes the following:

For Lunch:

  • Beet and Walnut Salad with Cherry Vinaigrette
  • Corn Pudding
  • Fancy Green Beans (or Green Beans sauteed with cashews, onions and red pepper with an Asian honey glaze)
  • Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes
  • Honey Baked Ham
  • Sweet Cream Biscuits

For Dessert:

  • Chocolate Cherry Trifle
  • Cranberry Crumble

This is the first year Eric and I are hosting his family for the holidays. It's something he has wanted to do since we moved in to our home (this is our third Christmas in this house). I am postively thrilled that everyone's schedules were able to accommodate a drive to Raleigh and an overnight stay. Now, I just have to hope I can pull everything together and make both Eric and my grandmother's proud!

Wish me luck.
