Christmas Dinner

December 28, 2010

I forget what it takes to make a holiday dinner around here – going back through the bittersweet archives, I am even more thankful.  Pic heavy – dial-up beware.  The menu Christmas Eve:  Pork loin roast stuffed with beef breakfast sausage, roasted root vegetables, winter squash, mashed potatoes and roast dripping gravy, & blueberry pie.  Christmas Day, pork roast pot pie with roasted roots.

Just keeping it real…

    Oh, my, you have worked so hard all year! We forget that it’s a process, don’t we, and take for granted the work other people put in to providing food for our table when we buy it. Everything looks lovely. I especially like the way you layer sugared stars for the top of your pie. I have a star cutter and a heart cutter, and I usually use it to cut the center hole of the top pie crust with, but I really like that layered look.

    I’ll take a piece of that pie! Looks yummy. My friend Jeanne and I divided the duties to make all the food preparation easier. I did Christmas Eve dinner and she did Christmas day. I took the easy way out with a ham, but she went all out with a standing rib roast, cauliflower au gratin, and a kale salad with sugar coated pecans and apples. It was really wonderful. Hope your holiday was a wonderful one. – Margy

    A year to make a meal. Only a farmer would understand.

    No need to join a gym.
