Food, Glorious Food!

We had an Amazing Christmas this year!  There was so much good food, laughter, family times, relaxation, giving, visiting, singing, and in general, enjoying God's blessings! 
We spent Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and Boxing Day with Stephen's family, and had a total hoot!
I got to help make a lot of the food over the weekend, which was so much fun for me!  I really love cooking for "big" groups, especially appreciate, hungry ones!  I love really making food look beautiful, as well as tasting good!
My mother-in-law and I put together this feast for Christmas Eve!   

Chocolate Fondue!

Spinach Dip! (A Christmas tradition for me!)

Deviled Eggs


 Cheese Fondue!

Yes, good food was enjoyed by all.  I love how a meal like this brings people together in a way that "normal food" doesn't.  There's so much more interaction and fun, it seems!  
This is one of my favorite types of meals.  I love appetizers and finger foods during the holidays!  It's so much fun planning it out, making sure you have a beautiful variety of each type of food.

Spinach Dip

1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1 package Knorr vegetable soup mix
1 (8 oz) package chopped, frozen spinach
1 (round) loaf sourdough bread

Mix mayo and sour cream together.  Add the soup mix.  Add the spinach (thawed and drained) and mix thoroughly.
Cut out the centre of the sourdough loaf and place the dip inside.  Cut the centre of the loaf into bite sized pieces to eat with the dip.
You can also serve this with crackers, and with vegetables.


  1. Caleigh, that all looks so delish! You do have a real flair for making the food look attractive and I know from experience that it tastes just as good. =) I love how you arranged the fruit, it is beautiful!

  2. Thanks Breanne! :) The fruit was actually Mom C's doing, I thought it looked so beautiful too!
