Eating Out: The Green Edge Christmas Dinner

For the last few years, The Green Edge has held a special menu Christmas dinner the weekend before Christmas. I went last year with my friend Melanie, and this year we went again.

The tables were cute and Christmas themed! And when we got there, we were given a little sampler of their Gingerbread Frappe.

The menu ended up being exactly the same as last year, though last year there was also a cheese platter option for the dessert. I've heard that they are planning on revamping the menu for next year (this year now?), which would be fun to change things up.

We both got the same entrees that we had last year. I had the delicious Arancini with Pesto and Garlic Mayo, and Melanie had the Avocado Prawns.

Last year we both had the stuffed butternut roast, and this year we both tried the festive seitan roast. The pieces of the roast we smaller, but it was quite heavy so that was good. With vegetables and gravy and mashed potato.

For dessert, we both had the sticky date pudding (which is what I had last year). It came with whipped cream and coconut ice cream, but I just asked for mine with the (soy based) cream. Last year I had made the mistake of ordering a very sweet Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate at the same time as dessert, which ended me with too much sugar. This year, after sipping a kombucha during dinner, I skipped any other drink options and stuck with the dessert. It was delicious!

Melanie and I are keen to make a Christmas dinner tradition between us, but we are hopeful that next year the menu will be changed up a bit so we can try new things!

Sahara on Christmas

Sahara, on her last Christmas. Christmas is a lot harder when you are missing loved ones who are no longer there. This was my second Christmas without her.


  1. You are so right about Christmas. NYE is the anniversary of my sweet Dylan's passing and the holiday season just felt full of sadness for me to be honest.
    I think a great Christmas dinner tradition with a good friend is a great idea!

    1. It makes it hard. Especially when everyone else expects you to be full of festive cheer.

  2. Oooh what a fun tradition! All the food looks amazing. I would have made all the same menu choices. :-)

  3. I love this fancy holiday tradition. haha I take the cheap route and try and convince my husband to do chinese take out near xmas. lol

    1. Chinese takeout sounds like an excellent christmas tradition to me!
