Lovely Irish Christmas Dinner

While Christmas Dinner is finished for this year and leftovers were happily consumed this St. Stephen’s Day, I wanted to share with you this photo and lovely setting for this “oh so sumptuous” meal by my cousin, Helen Murphy…

Our Irish Christmas Dinner menu consisted of:


      • Deviled Eggs
      • Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Main Course:

      • Roast Turkey basted with rashers (Irish Bacon)
      • Baked Ham with a special Cullinan Family glaze consisting of honey, English mustard and a secret ingredient (Paddy’s  Irish Whiskey)
      • Potato stuffing
      • Mashed carrots and parsnips
      • Brussel sprouts
      • Roasted potatoes
      • Cranberry sauce
      • Turkey Gravy


      • Sherry Trifle with Custard
      • Christmas Pudding


      • Good craic with neighbors and a screening of the classic Christmas  movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

Those Christmas-decorated tubes in the upper part of the photo are known as “Christmas Crackers”… they pop when pulled apart, and contain a holiday joke, a small novelty gift such as tweezers, a small ink pen or miniature playing cards, and the most important accoutrement — colored paper Christmas crown hats!

All in all, a very enjoyable Christmas Day.
