Holiday "Cook" Off!

This challenge is for those of you who thrive on completing menu plans, or who come alive when it's time to plan a party. There are two levels to the challenge. It's not necessarily a contest... Really a way to share our deepest culinary dreams. So here we go...

Plan a complete Christmas Eve Dinner menu, start to finish, for your four virtual guests who will be arriving in two days. A theme would be fun, but is not necessary. If you would like, you can include links to recipes. **I would love that!!**

The dinner must include the following 5 elements:
  • Appetizers
  • Soup & Salad
  • Entrees & Side Dishes (at least two sides)
  • Desserts
  • Beverages/Cocktails
When completed, post your menu as a comment on this blog, or email it to me if it is too long for the comment box and I will publish it as a follow-up post on our blog!

Challenge A:
The sky is the limit. You have no price limits, and all ingredients are available to you. However, remember you have only 2 days!!

Challenge B:
Precisely the same as Challenge A, except for a price limit.

Your price limit for the dinner (all elements included) is $40.
That means only $40 for a meal for five persons, or $8 per plate.

** If you are really bored or extra ambitious, feel free to submit a price list, detailing the costs of your dinner! Brownie points for you! (I know... You really just want the brownie! Sorry!)**

Let the challenge begin!
