Christmas Dinner last night was super nice, like quite a lot of things on this trip.
They started us off with this spinach and red cabbage salad that had some cranberries, chopped pears, strawberries, walnuts, and mandarin oranges, on the side, and a choice of either raspberry vinaigrette or mango truffle vinaigrette. I went with the latter, and I’m glad./monthly_2018_12/D469A68F-A16E-4965-B9F9-55A361D5F1E8.thumb.jpeg.e2958e8f20f75afd0270fc96a87c8e19.jpeg
I don’t think the menu has ever changed in the many years we have done this, so as always, I went with the Sea Bass. As the menu says, the Bass was “Herb Roasted with Maine Lobster Cream”, and it came with some asparagus on a creamy butternut squash purée, a potato casserole, and Brussels Sprouts.
Dessert was a buffet (the fourth one on this trip), with plenty of cookies,/monthly_2018_12/17D32D3A-E43F-4057-9019-54F10BBAE789.thumb.jpeg.ffacfd99a90311fbb19b2a303e07fe1c.jpeg

...and this pretty hilarious/disgusting typo that my dad noticed:
There were also plenty of cupcakes, brownies, cream puffs, etc, and a cherries jubilee stand, bananas foster stand, and ice cream stand. :huh:
I didn’t actually end up having that much of it though, since dinner itself was extremely filling. Here is maybe half of what I ended up having: some coconut and coffee ice cream with chocolate sprinkles, a brownie, two cream puffs, and chocolate chip cookie.
On the way out, I made sure to grab plenty of chocolates ( 1@Mystic River Dragon[/USER] ) “for the road”, at the very festive table they had out front:/monthly_2018_12/1187A04E-4B11-430D-8750-8CF3CB40BBAB.thumb.jpeg.9258734c667c79dd68aba3f257bdb4c8.jpeg/monthly_2018_12/53127B1F-3AD0-47A0-9621-7279D74B2CF2.thumb.jpeg.03bd85af2c0d9d29d18fa2d93f1eae2b.jpeg/monthly_2018_12/9B4820CA-063B-402E-A663-3F6659B42EB1.thumb.jpeg.e16ba4dbacb839ec542dda4297700fe8.jpeg
