Jan asked for crab bisque for Christmas Eve dinner—she saw a recipe in this week’s food section. Chris is down south, so Miriam is coming over and we will be celebrating just a bit early—the last Hobbit movie and a nice dinner. To make it special, Jan also asked me to add some lobster to the bisque. Miriam’s request for this holiday meal is for potato latke and as a green we have agreed upon a carrot and spinach salad.

We were planning to have Uncle Tom’s apricot pie for Christmas Eve dinner, but I forgot to defrost it. At the last minute I threw together this desert. I had a few pears and some leftover store-bought pear-caramel sauce from a previous dinner. Pears, butter, a bit of spice and whiskey and voilà.
A visiting sister gives me a good excuse to bring back some of my best dishes from the year. The Greek barbequed lamb, and Karl’s Greek Lemon Pilaf that I made for Easter were really successful. However I was sure I could make them even better. A cold green bean salad would complete the meal.
