We didn't quite make it up to 7 for Christmas dinner, but we came close. We had mussels (best ever), salt-cod cakes, shrimp and crab au gratin, serrano-pepper-sauced sea bass (the sauce, courtesy of Bobby Flay, was voted amazing), and lobster risotto (the only offering that =completely= disappeared). We also had orange-cardamom beets (just for you, John), crookneck casserole, and traditional figgy pudding. Mmmm.
Recipes to follow. I'll include the one for Morrocan cod (we use haddock), which we prepared -- all but the cooking -- and then did not serve. Everyone was too full.
