Christmas Eve Annual Dinner

 This year we continued our annual tradition of a gourmet, dress-up Christmas Eve dinner.
Due to activities that were planned with extended family for Christmas Eve, we had our family dinner one day early, on Friday. 
All mid-morning/afternoon the kitchen was filled the many bustling cooks preparing their various appetizers. 
I'll let pictures tell the story....
::Mexican Dip::
 ::Chocolate Cream Puffs::

 ::Garlic Pizza Wedges::

 ::Chocolate Covered Goodness Balls::

 ::Chicken/Broccoli Cups::
 ::Red Pepper Hummus::
 ::Bacon/Onion Stuffed Mushrooms::
 Veggie Tray
 ::Onion Rings::
::Raw Chocolate Gelatin Cheesecake::
 The table, laden with all things gourmet and scrumptious.
