Dinner party ..tradition?

I have been wanting to do a dinner party for a while now, so when Jeremy said a Christmas party would be good, I jumped on it. Seriously I have the sweetest hubby ever to do this for me!  The kids went to Grandma's and we cooked all day.  We made sparkling mango lemonade with pomegranates seeds and juice drizzled in. 
First course was Caesar Salad with homemade dressing and my personal favorite..homemade croutons!  I kept sneaking and eating them all day like a snack!  It's a wonder we had enough to put out for dinner!

Tiff and Dev were our guests.  It seriously was so fun and yummy.  We offered to take a pic of the boys but they declined.  Don't know why.
Crab cakes on a Jicama Slaw.  Enough said.  VERY impressed that Tiff knew it was Jicama. 
Main dish was garlic mashed potatoes, fillet Mignon with a mushroom reduction sauce, and panko battered zucchini strips dusted in parm.  I made a pumpkin roll for dessert but I really don't know how we ate all the food.  All I can say is I am already making a menu for next year.  We had a great time with good friends.
