Last year Karen took us to Keswick Hall for a fancy Christmas lunch. We enjoyed it so much we returned – this year hosted by Karen’s friends Tracy and Clayton.
Keswick is gorgeous and dramatic and settled in the Virginia countryside.
Karen and me – hungry for lunch!
The format of the lunch is fun – soup and salad are served but then the rest is buffet
Carrot + Ginger Soup
Apple + Goat Cheese Salad
There were a variety of salads – and smoked salmon!!
And I followed those with some herby caper chicken, mac n cheese and green beans. I haven’t had mac in ages – it was great!
The dessert buffet was somethin’ else! I love how the portions are small-ish too so you can taste more.
I tried a round swirl cake
Shared a crème brulee, chocolate chip bread pudding and a chocolate mousse with Karen!
We ended the meal with some peppermint tea
Thanks so much to Tracy + Clayton for lunch – and for this fun gift for a foodie!
Can you believe it’s Christmas Week!?
