Just the 2 of us for dinner at home this year, and we're doing it light:


Jumbo prawn cocktails with my home-made seafood sauce - Yum!

We had breakfast for supper: sunny side eggs, home fried potatoes, and some fried up Italian sausage. It really hit the spot.

We nibbled much of the morning on an assorted breakfast of Raspberry Kringle, Blueberry Tea Cake and savory biscuits and gravy..

The "nibbles" were salami, cheese, 3 dips and assorted olives, pepperoncini, etc..

I slow cooked a rib roast and seared it in a hot oven.. Simple sides were baked red potatoes, asparagus and yeast rolls from the Kringle bakery..

If the pics transfer correctly, I'll post our dinner table tomorrow..

Well, you all beat us by a mile with your luscious looking dishes, but we enjoyed our jumbo prawns - just plated plain & simple with seafood cocktail sauce - no fancy stuff like - being hung over the rims of a lovely goblet over greens - nothing like that.

We had ham, turkey, mashed potatoes, rutabagas, collards, gravy, oyster dressing, plain dressing, sweet potatoes, Watergate salad, cornbread, chocolate pie, and lemon pie. Sent a few leftovers home with my 2 aunts, but Mom and I have enough in the fridge that we won't have to cook for a few days.

China, crystal and candle light dinner for 5 was:


Two whole ducks, roasted to perfection, backbone removed and quartered for serving
My mushroom rice pilaf
Creamed onion and cheddar broccoli
Cranberry sauce
Christmas Ambrosia Salad ( served in china tea cups)
dinner rolls and butter
Pecan pie


Dinner was a huge hit, and all the compliments really made my Christmas.

I'm a bit late, but here is our Christmas Day dinner - short ribs braised in Pinot Noir, mashed potatoes, pan-roasted carrots (and Brussels sprouts for DH) and yeast rolls. Choice of homemade apple pie or lemon pound cake my brother and his family sent us. We all had pie

Oh, and DH made me eggs Benedict to fortify me for a day of cooking
