A tasty weekend ahead

On our way back from donating blood, my SO and I stopped by our favorite German deli. We traditionally have a dinner of good deli meats and tasty bread on Christmas Eve, but since we were with family this year we missed out on that. So, instead of waiting another whole year for good deli meats, we're going to be having them for New Year's Eve. We also missed out on our traditional Christmas dinner (a result of a family miscommunication), so we'll be making that for New Year's Day. Here's our current plan:

New Year's Eve:
  • Breakfast: Baked French toast
  • Lunch and dinner: Deli meats and cheeses (spicy Hungarian salami, paprika salami, fine and coarse liverwurst, black forest ham, roasted turkey, landjaeger, provolone, feta, Iberico, and English coastal cheddar), with ciabatta and rustic rolls
New Year's Day:
  • Breakfast: Unknown (probably more deli meats)
  • Appetizer / lunch: Bruschetta with fresh mozzarella
  • Dinner: Cream of cauliflower soup, royal braised vegetables in cardamom nut sauce, saffron pilaf with peaches
  • Dessert: Tarte Tatin
It's going to be a fun weekend!
