Christmas Dish Success, Member Kooking

We made this dish for Christmas Dinner for our extended family in 2010. We had no idea what an impression it had made. Apparently everyone was looking forward to this dish again in 2011. If I would have known that, I would have made more of this dish with fewer other protein choices. For now on this dish will be included as a Christmas Family Tradition. The good thing is we don't have to wait until Christmas to make it again. It's also easy to prepare which is an added bonus!
