Doing anything special for Christmas Eve or Christmas day foodwise?? Any traditions?
We gave up on turkey for Christmas a long time ago, so now we usually do a standing rib roast on Christmas Day. I can only take so much turkey in a
year. The only problem with not doing turkey is we can't really do some of the other traditional favorites for Christmas, like boiled / baked onions
and squash (love me some squash).
Basically our Christmas plan for this year is:
Morning - French Toast and sausages. (tradition since I was a kid). Black raspberry jam on the French Toast, instead of syrup (for me anyway).
Lunch - A hearty baked artichoke, spinach, dip with Romano cheese, Parmesean cheese, fresh garlic, and topped with fresh Mozzarella cheese and cracked
pepper. Served with toasted baguette slices. (just love this dip!) And that's pretty much it for lunch, just keep it "kind" of light.
Appetizer - Butter sautéed Sea Scallops, served with a garlic aioli and/or some homemade tartar sauce.
Salad - We skip a salad on Christmas, and cut right to the MEAT!
Entree - Standing Rib Roast (done to about 119 F...rare), asparagus, mashed taters and ajus.
Dessert - Homemade cheesecake with an candied apple slices, cinnamon and melted red hot candy drizzle. (Just LOVE her cheesecakes!!)
Apre' Dessert - Maybe a nice walk if it's nice out, and then likely a serious power-nap!
For tonight (Christmas Eve) we're going to get some nice sushi from a great sushi place in town.
How about you and yours? Doing anything fun?
