Le reveillon or Christmas eve celebration
Christmas eve lunch was a snacky affair. I filled this Tupperware tray with celery sticks, carrot sticks, black olives, herbed cornichons, pickled garlic scapes, pickled radishes, salsa. I also had some herbed Alouette soft cheese to spread on the celery and carrots, some "scoops" style nachos for the salsa.
I baked off some kielbasa slices, later served with choice of mustards
and some fzn pigs in a blanket-both from Aldi's
I steamed some pork-veggie pot stickers and served them with 2 sauces.
My snack plate. Assorted sodas, Snapple, cider-all bought on sale were the beverages to select from.
The evening meal featured shrimp cocktail (aldi's fzn that I boiled, peeled myself), and homemade tourtière.
which is a double crusted pie with a ground pork-beef, potato fillling. Relish tray also served.
