Christmas Eve dinner 2015

Ready or not....Santa's Back!!

Just the two of us tonight but I have a small prime rib in the oven, with the "no peeky" method. We'll have veggies saute' with duck fat, and some dressing frozen from Thanksgiving.
Merry Christmas to all!!

Lovely GIF Kayelle! Tomorrow night is roast beef and king crab at my brothers house. Tonight I might break out the Presto Fry Daddy and fry up some chicken drumettes and fries and watch NFL football.

Mmm...sounds delicious, Kay.

Pork tamales here this evening! Wrapped in corn husks and freshly made by some of our very talented local Latino ladies.

Have a wonderful and peaceful Christmas eve, all!

Lovely suggested take-out Chinese and Himself did the food run. I so appreciated that because I spent the better part of the day making sauce and assembling lasagna for Christmas dinner. Now on to midnight Mass later, unless Himself can find one that starts earlier. ~ Hoping your Christmas eve is calm, and that you have clear sky to see the near-full moon tonight.

It is indeed a beautiful moon this evening! I can see it in the eastern sky while sitting here at the dining room table. Gorgeous.

Glad you're having a nice time with family CG, and that you got a break from kitchen duties this evening!

TB's parents took us out for lunch at an Asian restaurant we all love halfway between where we both live. It was great food, great conversation and a very fine time.

I am not hungry now, so just had some chocolate frozen yogurt with a virgin egg nog chaser....well it is Christmas Eve after all!

We went to my mom's house and had a bunch of appetizers - a nice, relaxing meal. A couple of the items I made were hummus with roasted red peppers and spinach & artichoke dip. I also made the rye bread on the left and pita chips sprinkled with Penzey's Mural of Flavor seasoning. There were a few other goodies. All in all, a nice afternoon.

We went out for Indian food with some good friends we hadn't seen for a while. It was a nice quiet evening.

We've had astonishingly warm weather - in the low 50's!! Fogged in, though, or it would have been even warmer. Had one of my wife's favorite dinners - marinated steak tips on the grill, with baked sweet potatoes and roasted brussel sprouts.
