Nourriture de Nöel

Christmas is a'comin and it's time to figure out what shopping I need to do. I thought that the franco-american hybrid vegetarian christmas food might be somewhat interesting. (Also somewhat interesting: "le bouffe" is vulgar. How can a word that means "food" be vulgar?) Also, I need real recipes for some of these things. I dunno if I can fake french toast.

An asterix means that I need to buy it. Parenthetical means that I'll prepare it if Santa brings it.

Breakfast

Pain Perdue

  • Brioche
  • eggs *
  • butter *
  • soy milk
  • sugar *
  • cinnamon, etc

(pamplemousse)

Beverages

  • mimosas: oj + champagne
  • coffee *

The big meal

(salad)

I dunno about salad. It's a lot of work for rabbit food.

Mashed taters

  • potatoes *
  • garlic
  • creme fraîche
  • soy milk
  • butter *
  • emmental

Yams

  • yams *
  • butter *
  • raisins *
  • maple syrup *

Gravy

  • mushrooms
  • onion
  • garlic
  • flour
  • olive oil and/or butter
  • soy milk *
  • celery *

String beans

  • 1/2 kilo haricots vert *
  • butter *

Squash soup

  • pre-baked Squash (I saw some butternut squashes at the hippie store!) *
  • pre-baked Chestnuts
  • onion
  • garlic
  • hot pepper (*)
  • carrots
  • rice and/or quinoza
  • broccoli *
  • celery *
  • butter
  • creme fraîche

Cheese

  • st nectaire *
  • tba other cheese *
  • baguettes *

Dessert

I reserved a Christmas cake from the baker. I love living in a civilised country where you are not expected to perform baking feats, but can get a very high quality cake from across the street.

Beverages

  • mulled cider: spice + apple juice
  • mulled wine: spice + cheap wine (maybe santa wants to bring an extra bottle for mulling)
  • good wine
  • (cognac)
