For brunch, we had chicken tortilla soup from the freezer. I added some Velveeta and it was much improved.

For dinner, I made my first standing rib roast and it came out just perfectly. We also had roasted veggies, baked potatoes and yeast rolls. Flourless chocolate cake with dark chocolate-cinnamon ganache was just to die for. So good.

Starting prep work on phase 2 of holiday eats - shredding cheese, chopping onions, jalapenos, tomatoes, etc. My brother couldn't be here on Christmas day so we're doing an early afternoon dinner tomorrow.

We're having a Mexican feast - chicken enchiladas, chiles rellenos casserole, refried black beans, Spanish rice, guacamole, and hopefully some local homemade tamales from Maria the Tamale Lady. I might be too late for tomorrow afternoon, but I'll try her in the AM and see.

Saturday, my granddaughters will be here, so daughter is hosting a ham dinner at her house. OMG. I am so going to have to diet after the holidays, but for now, I don't care and will enjoy!
