Holiday Season Dinner Party Menu!

We had 3 couples over for dinner last night.  Our dear friends Jason and Maria are expecting their second child on New Year’s Eve so we thought it would be fun to have them over — before things get even busier for them — to see some friends.  We had a fun evening and everyone seemed to enjoy the food.

I tried to put a festive holiday menu together since it’s that time of year and many of you might be trying to figure out some menus for the season.
