The Dh and I didn't have a wonderful Christmas due to a family issue, and there was no big Christmas dinner this year so tonight I made us a big dinner. To start we had cream of asparagus and prosciutto and portabello salad with lemon vinaigrette. For dinner we had grilled sirloin steak with herb butter, mushrooms and grilled onions in a red wine sauce, roasted broccoli and cauliflower (in a lemon and Dijon sauce), and chipotle and cheddar corn bread. For dessert Ina Gartens lemon meringue tart (my first lemon meringue ever!)

DW has her sauce cooking on the stove, so it's s'ghetti & meatballs with homemade Italian bread & spinach salad. This was a request from DD who will be heading back to Orlando on Sunday morning.

robo, does the color of the lentils tend to cook out? if so, are the (minute, imo) differences about flavor, texture, or something else?

i've made various lentils before, and they all seem to cook down to different shades of beige and green.

no clue - we are supposed to go visit at a relative's house this afternoon - don't know if food is included in the plan or if we'll go out to dinner.

Steaks and asparagus, both cooked over charcoal.
Baked potatoes.

It's a hearty meal without all the Christmas junk food. It will taste good.

I am really feeling like calling DH and having him pick up Chinese on his way home from work.....or maybe sushi?
