Merry Christmas, Y’all


I’m spending the holidays cooking and eating with my family. We’re making cakes and candies, hot chocolate and eggnog, standing rib roast and popovers, banana pancakes and palmiers, creamy “adult” drinks and punch for the kids. Last night, I made three different stir fries (I’m glad I have 3 woks!) for us and some friends who are actually moving into their newly constructed house this past weekend. Talk about crazy timing.

Anyhow, I’ll have plenty to write about, but for now, have a Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Frolicking Festivus, Delightful Kwanzaa, or whatever the rest of you celebrate. And if you don’t celebrate anything, enjoy your time off from work!

    I’m the cook at Christmas too. This year was the traditional homeade pizza on Christmas Eve (that is traditional, right?) and on Christmas Day, a rib roast with simple twice-baked potatoes and salad, with yorkshire pudding – yes, a real decadent treat! Finally took the roast out of the oven at 125 degrees, and was shocked it reached medium rare at 145. The lesson here – trust science!
