I made the corn showder. It turned out nice and thick and creamy. Son #1 came by today and took some home. He will be back to morrow to get some more. Some for his freezer and some for him to eat. I also made the apple pie for my daughter's house. Deducting about two pounds for the pie plate, it weighed about 14 pounds. I didn't have any. We had the rib roast for our holiday meal. I had a very small plate full. I have her serve me on a salad plate. I don't like to eat a lot at one sitting. Salad plates do just fine for me. And I don't eat desserts.

Cooked a pork loin stuffed with some garlic and rosemary. Served with roasted new potatoes, yorkshire puddings, and steamed cauliflower and sprouts. Topped off with gravy. It was delicious, got some leftovers, and I passed out after eating it, hence why I'm awake so early now!!!

we had a pretty good spread.

we started with shrimp cocktail, and port wine cheese balls rolled in nuts, and some aged cheddar, all with crackers.

my meatballs and sausage turned out well, and we also had a smoked, maple glazed, spiral cut ham that my mom made that was delicious.

eldest sis made garlic chicken marsala that was good but very garlic-y. her hubby, my bil made baked ziti, and my yougest sis made a salad with romaine, chick peas, and dried cranberries. she also brought italian pastries for dessert.

someone brought creamed corn that i think no one touched.

you can tell that my entire family are bread people, because there wasn't a slice left to be found of all of the fresh bread dw and i picked up from our local bakeries on the way.

we brought 2 huge rye breads: one with whole caraway, one without.
we also brought an extra large, oat topped multigrain brown bread, and 2 giant french breads.
whatever wasn't eaten was jealously divided then stashed away in everyone's bags of gifts that they were taking home, lol.

We had prime rib, Blue cheese scalloped potatoes, roasted Brussels sprouts and carrots, steamed green beans all started with stuffed mushroom appetizers and a green salad. We shared a bottle of 2003 Australian Merlot. There is pecan pie for dessert, but still too full!

If you don't like the food, have more wine!
