Mad Hungry MY Way: Holiday Tables
Posted by Lucinda Scala Quinn
1 Martha Baylón-Futterman made her 1st ever homemade Christmas Eve Dinner: "Up to now we've always bought our dinner from a local Super Market. I brined and roasted the turkey, made mashed potatos, green beans with mushrooms and almonds, and bread stuffing. Plus my NY Cheescake!"
2 Monica Rose cooked for Christmas Eve, "ham, blue cheese brussel sprouts, coconut sweet potato casserole and olive peas. The ham has already been repurposed into Christmas morning eggs Benedict and the hambone is on it's way to flavoring some lentil soup."
3 "What we served at our holiday dinner: your duck a la orange! Fabulous!!!!" - Lucinda Segneri
4 Sara Alberti's holiday table included "Chicken Milanaise with Arugula with fresh lemon juice and shaved parm on top with fresh fettucini and butter"
5 Jerri Reynold's holiday meal was cooked in one of my favorite clay pots, La Chamba.
"I decided to cook my holiday dinner and serve it in these Chamba pots, with the exception of my pot roast which was 6 lbs. and had to be cooked in a large clay roaster."
6 "But I did my potatoes in a casserole dish on the stove"
7 " my glazed carrots in my counter top oven,"
8 "and the green beans in a cazuela on the stove as well...An otherwise ordinary meal cooked in clay pots, and it felt like a celebration"
With many of the holidays upon us the past few weeks, we wondered what was on YOUR holiday tables. We asked, you answered and above are some of the awesome and inspiring photos of submissions we received from our MH viewers.
