Holiday Dinner with Friends - and everybody cooked!

This is going to take a few posts to get all these amazing photos in, so bear with me... 12 courses and everybody brought 1 or 2 courses that they made at my house - including the matching wine or champagne. Here are the first few courses and cooks! Below is the whole menu - we didn't finish eating until 1 am! And to be honest, even though it looks like an overwhelming amount of food I wasn't overly stuffed at the end. I think it really worked because the portions were small and it took us 6 hours to eat it all!

Sweet and Spicy Pecans, Cheddar Crackers, Umbrian Salami
Lobster Corndogs with Spicy Mustard
Smoked Salmon on Roasted Potatoes & Dungeness Crab with Cocktail Sauce Aspic
Creamy Saffron Crab Soup with Watercress
Shrimp Scorpio with Angel Hair Pasta
Meyer Lemon and Thyme Granita
Trio of Duck with Fingerling Potato Galettes
Beef Wellington with Roasted Mustard Brussel Sprouts
Watercress Salad
Brie, Old Amsterdam and Sage Cheddar
Massacre in a Snow Storm, Warm Chocolate Cake and Pecan Tartlets

Whew! Thanks to all who made it a special night!! More photos to follow...
