I’m in trouble. It’s just about a week away from Christmas and I haven’t finalized my menu.
Unlike Thanksgiving, which the family has firmly decided as the best meal of the year and therefore pretty much set in stone, our Christmas menu keeps changing year after year.
Sometimes we do ham, sometimes prime rib, sometimes turkey… see, all over the place. I’d like to, once and for all, come up with a menu worthy of the occasion that everybody is happy with. So I can just repeat it annually.
At the moment, I’m leaning toward Beef Wellington, something I’ve recently become fairly good at making.
What d’ya think? It’s an oldie but goody … or in other words, a classic. It also makes for an impressive entree, imo. Yes or no?
What are you all serving for Christmas?

Hi, Angie; That Beef Welllington looks amazing! We are going to be at my in-laws in Toronto, so no planning for me; my mother-in-law is from Cyprus, and her menu was set in stone decades ago: a giant turkey (no matter how many people are partaking), salad, and Greek sides and baked goods: pasticcio (noodles layered with meat), spanakopita (spinach phyllo pies), fried cauliflower stew, lemon roasted potatoes, baklava, kourabiedes (sugary cookies), you name it. Thank you for hosting another great FF; I am sharing #2 Pan Dulce – Puff Pastry Rolls with Fruit. Have an awesome last-before-Christmas week!

It’s a long time since I had a Beef Wellington… But you’ve got me drooling! Sometimes the old recipes are simply the best.
Thanks for featuring my Christmas Tree Cake.
Have a great week xx
I always love popping in here for the party – I find such inspiring ideas and recipes. Thank you for hosting. I hope you’re have a FANTASTIC week.
What did you end up having Angie? We had rib eye steaks and sausage/cornbread stuffing (because there is never enough left over at Thanksgiving). But there were only 3 of us on Christmas this year.
We had prime rib roast and lots of sides, a la Lawry’s restaurant. I even made popovers (for the Yorkshire pudding). It was a good dinner. The beef was tender and perfectly cooked at medium rare, but as always I enjoyed the side dishes even more. I took a few pictures, maybe I’ll post one of these days.
