What's cooking 12-25-11?

I don't think we have a daily dinner thread going yet... and I'm pretty sure I saw two Eve threads...

Anyway, tonight's dinner I finally got around to reheating that prime rib I cooked earlier this week. I served it on garlic toast with the au jus poured on top and also made some Dutch new potatoes fried in duck fat with some garlic and herbs de provence. And scrambled eggs to round things out, because I really wanted to make this earlier this morning

We had the Salmon, steamed asparagus with Hollandaise and smashed potatoes with butter and chives. We are cutting into a lemon meringue pie right now.

My daughters, SIL and grandson had a Tenderloin roast, Béarnaise sauce, pilaf, asparagus, butternut squash, sauteed portabellos and red Zinfandel.

Desserts were apple pie, cake balls, pumpkin roll, vanilla ice cream and Christmas cookies.

Frankly, I didn't make this pie. We bought a 'mile high' apple pie as a fund raiser for Steven's pre-school. I baked it up this morning and it was pretty good. It wouldn't be mistaken for home made.

That lemon meringue would really hit the spot about now. Homemade or not.

We had fusilli pasta with pasta sauce with ground beef and Italian sausage. We had red wine, guest had white wine because red gives him headaches. We are now finishing our wine and having Danish butter cookies.

I probably could send a box with what was once a pie in it.

Correction...half a pie.
