Winter Solstice Dinner

P1010973 P1010974 P1010975 P1010976Yesterday was Winter Solstice, the short daylight in a year.  It is also an Asian custom to have family dinner together.  Rather than going the ‘tradition’ route, I ordered an Italian feast of eggplant rollatini, homestyle pizza, a green salad, and a side of spicy tuna sushi.  Got to incorporate some Asian flavor.  For dessert, I scooped out a dragonfruit and filled the shell with pistachio ice cream, paired with diced dragonfruit flesh and cantaloupe.  My parents left the table holding their stomachs.

Stay warm for those in the Northern Hemisphere!
