Christmas Eve Supper at Hale Pali

Wonderful friends, great food, good wine, Pink Martini's Christmas Album, candle light and lots of laughter make the recipe for a perfect Christmas Eve. The only thing missing was my son! We had fantastic weather all weekend and I cooked for days and days making dozens of different tamales and Chiles en Nogada. I smoked a ham and made a great mustard sauce (see recipe below) to go with it. Our friends brought the rest of the meal and we ate till we could eat no more. Enjoy the pictures of our evening in Paradise.
