Unusual holiday dinners
Just after musing this morning that Indian or Japanese food sounded pretty good for Christmas dinner -- the first time in my adult life I've ever thought of venturing beyond what might be at home on any Victorian table -- I got a request from Laura Vozzella, who's writing a story for the Taste section on unconventional holiday dinners.
She's hoping to get readers to share their unusual menus with her for the story. Example: Someone here at the Sun had a meatloaf shaped like a Christmas tree for his holiday dinner. ...
I'm sorry, I try to be open-minded, but that does not sound festive to me.Whatever.
Anyway, Laura doesn't realize you all are like shy little kittens, so she suggested people e-mail her directly with their weird menus at Laura.Vozzella@baltsun.com. However, if you would prefer, you can simply post a comment here (and fill in your e-mail in the appropriate field), and she'll be in touch with you.
Of course, the person who had the traditional holiday meatloaf each year has never taken a photo of it -- no surprise there -- so we're stuck with a picture of a beautiful turkey dinner. Sorry about that. Although the garnishes look kind of strange, don't they? It looks like a tropical Christmas.
