2013 Christmas Eve Dinner 2013年のクリスマスイブディナー

Merry Christmas!  I hope everyone is having a nice time with family and friends.  For Christmas Eve, I roasted turkey breast.  I then sliced and placed them on the dish, and then put cranberry sauce on the top.  I then sprinkled chopped rosemary and placed pomegranate seeds around the meat.  This turned out to be very nice!  I found that turkey breast and pomegranate matched very well!
For appetizer, I prepared roasted vegetables.  I used to go to Atlanta on business many years ago and I was always traveling alone.  I then found a very nice French restaurant and it became my favorite.  I used to go there for dinner every time I went to Atlanta.  It was located in a shopping mall therefore, I felt comfortable to go there alone despite of that it was a nice French restaurant.  One day, I ordered roasted vegetables from the list of the appetizers and I got something like this.  It was quite delicious and also it looked very nice, therefore I started preparing it myself at home.  This contains eggplant, zucchini (both green and yellow), tomato, goat cheese and portobello mushroom.  As for the dressing, I used extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, and chopped basils. 
For soup, I prepared New England clam chowder.  I used both fresh clams and canned clams here!  This was very delicious, too!  While I was cooking this, it was little bit snowing outside.  As this soup was white as snow, I felt that it was a good timing!
