Christmas dinner: The Eatening

I just posted about making Christmas dinner, but I thought that the Christmas dinner itself deserved a separate post.  Kate and I got out our wedding china for the first time (is that right, Kate?) and set everything up to look really pretty.

(Kate went kind of nuts with the "background defocus" feature on our new camera)

And we set all our food out to enjoy.

 For those of you not familiar with the Haglund Swedish feast (or at least, our modified version without pickled herring), you see from left to right, crackers, mashed potatoes, limpa (heavy rye bread), roast and sausage, and fancy cheeses (also bought on sale at Kroger.  We can't afford to be too fancy).  You might also notice some mis-matched china.  I meant to blog about that a long time ago, and maybe still will one of these days, but that was bought at an estate sale here in Ann Arbor and we just wanted to get it out and use it too.  It's kind of a peachy-pink color, and Kate really fell in love with it. 

Anyway, Merry Christmas to all!
